President Donald Trump slammed unpopular “white rage” activist Gen. Mark Milley during remarks made at the Mar-a-Lago resort over the weekend, relaying an anecdote from his administration in which he realized that Milley was a “f**king idiot.”
“And I said, we’re getting out, and when we get out, I want every nut, every bolt, every screw,’” Trump said. “We’re taking everything. We’re taking down the tents, you know, they left all the tents, they left everything. Couldn’t they have flown in a couple hundred pilots and flown the planes out?”
Trump continued, “And I’ll never forget Milley saying to me, ‘Sir, sir, it’s cheaper to leave the equipment than to bring it.’ I said ‘Really?’ You got a 50 million dollar airplane, you got a 29 million dollar helicopter, we had every different type of helicopter, many of them brand new, literally out of the box. 28, 29 million, we have 60-70 million dollar planes, you mean you think it’s cheaper to leave it there so they can have it than it it is to fill it up with half a tank of gas and fly it into Pakistan or fly it back to our country.”

The former President then mocked Milley’s response, stating “‘Yes sir, we think it’s cheaper, sir.’ That’s when I realized this guy was a f**king idiot.” The observation drew uproarious applause from the audience.
Another target of Trump’s ire in his remarks at mar-a-Lago was highly unpopular Democrat President Joe Biden, who Trump described as having gotten “his ass kicked.” Trump stated that the result of the 2020 election was “very disgraceful.”
