The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army General Mark Milley has announced he was wrong to accompany President Trump and his cabinet members on a walk to a church through Lafayette Square outside of the White House.

Trump walked to pose with a Bible in front of St. John’s Church, a D.C. landmark where every president beginning with James Madison has worshipped.


The photo op came following the use of controversial police tactics, including using pepper gas and flashbangs to clear Lafayette Square shortly before curfew would’ve compelled the protesters, most of whom were peacefully demonstrating, to disperse.

The hardball tactics and staged event received, at best, mixed reactions overall, though they had subsided in the wake of escalating tensions elsewhere (RELATED: The Most Insane Reactions to the Riots).

For his part, Gen. Milley expressed regret that the photographs of him accompanying Trump that day gave the perception of a politicized military, saying, “My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.” He concluded his apology with, “As a commissioned uniformed officer, it was a mistake that I have learned from, and I sincerely hope we all can learn from it.”

The lies continue to be repeated. Tear gas was not used, the protesters were not peaceful and it was not a photo op. One of the most iconic churches in DC was set ablaze the night before. These “peaceful” protesters set it on fire, and then attempted to block the brave men and women fire fighters from getting through the narrow passageways. They risked life and limb to salvage the Church. An “Amen” that they succeeded. That is what the President was celebrating. Not unlike the War of 1812 battle that raged all night, and when morning broke, ‘Our Flag Was Still There.” General Milley should have been proud to witness this modern miracle. The Bishop should be thanking the Firefighters; not criticizing our President. Shame on her.

When Trump become president there was missing 6.5 billions in military.They did not have bills for that. Who do you think stole the money ?Money did not go to regular soldiers. Tops of military get it in their private packets..Under Trump they can not get more free billions…

This is just another example of the obama era and the generals he created. This general is one of the reason the U.S. is not respected in much of the world.
If all our generals were as lilly livered cowards as this one we would be speaking another language.
