Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley “repeatedly pushed back on then-President Donald Trump’s argument that the military should intervene violently in order to quell the civil unrest that erupted around the country last year,” CNN reports.
“Milley often found he was the lone voice of opposition to those demands during heated Oval Office discussions, according to excerpts of a new book.”
Said Trump: “That’s how you’re supposed to handle these people. Crack their skulls!”
He also told his team that he wanted the military to go in and “beat the fuck out” of the protesters.
