Milley warned Trump: “You’re gonna have a f—–g war”

Milley warned Trump:

Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, feared President Trump might provoke war with Iran as he tried to cling to power.

Iran was repeatedly raised in White House meetings with Trump in the months after the election, and Milley repeatedly argued against a strike. It’s stunning that Milley is allowing these detailed accounts of his thinking to be reported while he’s still in the job.

It was not public at the time, but Milley believed that the nation had come close—“very close”—to conflict with the Islamic Republic.These are the reasons Milley believed it would happen.
