The President of the Armed Forces of the Arab Republic of Egypt announced United State He was very upset in January of this year due to the mental health of Donald Trump who took secret measures to prevent the then US president from waging a war with ChinaUnveils a new book.
General Mark Milley, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, too He ordered his subordinates not to act without his consent if Trump gave any order to use the US nuclear arsenalAccording to journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
The Washington Post, where the journalists work, published an excerpt from the book “Danger” on Tuesday (14) showing Milley organizing the Pentagon and the US intelligence community to resist any possible wrong moves by Trump.
Milley spoke with other high-ranking US government officials such as then-CIA Director Gina Haspel and National Security Agency (NSA) chief Paul Nakasone about whether Trump could act irrationally.
The US Army chief also called Chinese General Li Zuocheng to reassure the United States’ biggest rival. The steps were taken after Trump’s defeat by current US President Joe Biden and the invasion of the Capitol..

He telephoned Zuocheng twice: first on October 30, 2020, days before the election, and again on January 8, 2021, after Trump supporters invade the US Congress. In both, Milley sought to reassure China that Trump’s rhetoric would not lead to military action.
Millie turned to the secret channel with Lee amid concerns about Trump’s emotional instability. To appease China, the commander of the US armed forces has postponed military exercises in Asia.
He also told key members of his team that they must inform him before any of Trump’s orders are carried out, particularly if a nuclear attack is ordered.
“Some could argue that Millie extrapolated her power and granted herself extraordinary power,” the journalists say. But he believes he was acting “to ensure that there was no historic breach of the international order, no accidental war with China or others, and no use of nuclear weapons.”
The Pentagon declined to comment on a requested request. On the other hand, Trump used harsh words against Milley and blamed him for the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan: “I suppose he would be tried for treason, because he was going to negotiate with his Chinese counterpart behind the president’s back.”.
Lee’s second call came after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Millie to discuss Trump’s mental health (and his refusal to acknowledge Biden’s election victory).
Woodward and Costa obtained a transcript of Pelosi’s call.
“What precautions are in place to prevent an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing launch codes and ordering a nuclear attack?” asked the Speaker.
“If they can’t stop him from invading the Capitol, who knows what else he could do?” Pelosi asked. “He’s crazy, you know, and what he did yesterday is further proof of his insanity.”
Milley said the system had “a lot of controls” in place to prevent Trump’s extremist actions, adding: “I agree with you on everything.”
Republican congressmen quickly attacked Millie. Marco Rubio, a Texas senator and staunch supporter of Trump, asked Biden to impeach the general.
Rubio said Milley “actively worked to undermine the commander-in-chief of the US armed forces and contemplated leaking classified information to the Chinese Communist Party”.
“These actions of General Milley demonstrate a clear lack of common sense and I ask them to remove him immediately,” the senator said in a letter to the current US president.
