It came last year during a fiery Oval Office confrontation over Milley’s public apology for appearing in a photo op with Trump at St. John’s Church:
“Why did you apologize?” Trump asked him. “That’s weak.”
“Not where I come from,” Milley said. “It had nothing to do with you. It had to do with me and the uniform and the apolitical tradition of the United States military.”
“I don’t understand that,” Trump said. “It sounds like you’re ashamed of your president.”
“I don’t expect you to understand,” Milley said.
