General Mark Milley, another Never-Trump general and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, fired off a warning shot to President Trump during a speech on Wednesday.
“We are unique among militaries. We do not take an oath to a king or a queen, a tyrant or a dictator. We do not take an oath to an individual. No, we do not take an oath to a country, a tribe or religion. We take an oath to the Constitution. And every soldier that is represented in this museum, every sailor, airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman, each of us will protect and defend that document, regardless of personal price,” Milley said during remarks at the opening of the US Army’s museum.
The top US General, Mark Milley made clear his dedication to the constitution amid sweeping changes at DoD. “We do not take an oath to a king or a queen, a tyrant or a dictator. We do not take an oath to an individual…We take an oath to the Constitution” https://t.co/ZKAI0pVB7O
