The United States is preparing to release a book by journalist Bob Woodworth and reporter Robert Costa "The Threat" ("Peril"), which will tell about the last days of Donald Trump's presidency.
The book will talk about how Mark Millie - Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States - took special measures after the capture of the Capitol in January 2021. Milli limited the power of then President Trump, as the latter could allegedly authorize a nuclear strike against China due to his defeat in the elections.
Trump himself says:
This is all a fabricated attempt to divert attention from the incompetent withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan, carried out under the leadership of the Joe Biden administration.
In a telephone interview with US Newsmax, Trump added:
Yes, you have heard my harsh statements about trade with the PRC more than once. We will not attack them because of this, right? You also heard me speak out about ... the Chinese virus. But I didn't even think about the impending attack on China. So I guess it is he (Biden) who is trying to make his incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan forget.
- said Trump.
The 45th President of the United States in his interview called the withdrawal of American troops "most likely the most shameful act that the leadership of our country has ever done."
We left with an embarrassed face. We left our guys. In addition, we left the best technology in the world and weapon, which cost $ 85 million. I bought this and rebuilt our armed forces, and Biden just left everything: Aviation, cartridges, uniforms. The death of 13 American soldiers, after the terrorist attack in Kabul in August, lies on the conscience of Millie and Biden. Our guys died due to the incompetence of these two people
- Trump explained.
I would need every bolt, every nail and screw. I would need every tank, every plane. It was necessary to take away everything that you can
- he specified.
Commenting on statements from the Threat book regarding Trump's desire to attack China and the measures taken by Millie, the ex-US President said that this was one of the most ridiculous things in his life, as well as a betrayal by Millie.
Donald Trump said that he is the only American president who has not started a war in many years, so statements about an impending nuclear strike against China in connection with the fact that he lost the elections are an open provocation.
In an interview, the former head of the White House noted that in the place of the president, he would have completely differently carried out the withdrawal of American units from Afghanistan.
We have signed a good agreement. There were many conditions on our part that we presented. Despite the fact that we bombed them, they agreed to meet with us. If I were president, the military would remain in place until all the Americans and Afghans who worked with us left the country.
- stressed Trump.
