Trump made the remark at an event in Mar-a-Lago hosted by conservative organization Turning Point Action, a C4 affiliate of Turning Point USA.
In reference to the withdrawal from Afghanistan, Trump said, “I want every nut, every bolt, every screw. We’re taking everything. We’re taking down the tents. They left all the tents. They left everything. Couldn’t they have flown in a couple of hundred pilots and flown the planes back?” Trump asked, pivoting to grill Milley.
Trump recounted when Milley said, “Sir, sir. It’s cheaper to leave the equipment than to bring it.” Trump listed the millions of dollars of brand new equipment.
“You think it’s cheaper to leave it there so they can have it than it i to fill it up with a half a tank of gallon…” Trump questioned. “That’s when I realized he was a f*cking idiot,” Trump said. The audience then started laughing.
In recent months, Trump has slammed Milley as “a complete nut job” who put the United States “in a very dangerous position.” Trump has also called for the “dumbass” to be tried for treason while 130 retired US military generals and admirals have signed a letter calling for Milley’s resignation.
