Donald Trump Says Joe Biden Should Fire Joint Chiefs Because He Says Climate Change Is ‘Our Biggest Threat’
Former President Donald Trump was in the process of releasing statements Thursday morning, including one urging President Joe Biden to fire his Joint Chiefs over comments he said about the dangers of climate change and another citing Trump’s continued “exemptions” from ‘fake’ studies fourth.
“Biden just said the Joint Chiefs of Staff told him that climate change is our biggest threat,” Trump wrote. “If that’s the case, and they actually said this, then he should fire the Joint Chiefs of Staff immediately for being incompetent!”
When Biden arrived in Mildenhall, England on Wednesday for his first foreign trip as president, he told US troops stationed there that he was told in 2009 that climate change was, according to the Joint Chiefs, the “greatest threat” facing the country.

‘EXCLUDED’: Former President Donald Trump said he was acquitted of the June 1, 2020 photo-op incident, as a new IG report from the Department of the Interior said protesters were cleared in advance so US park police could put up better fences
“Because there will be significant population movements, battles over land, millions of people leaving places because they are literally sinking under the sea in Indonesia, because of the fighting over what is more arable land,” Biden explained.
Trump, a climate change denier, withdrew the US from the Paris climate accord, something Biden reversed on his inauguration day.
The former president also sent a long-winded statement about all his “exemptions.”
He began the Russia investigation, an investigation that predated his swearing-in in January 2017, then brought forth recent testimony from Congress, former White House adviser Don McGahn, and a new report from the Department’s Inspector General. of Home Affairs forward.
“This week I was fully acquitted by the inspector general in the eviction of Lafayette Park, despite previous reports that it was done for political purposes,” Trump wrote.
The new IG report found that protesters in front of Lafayette Square were removed by U.S. park police and other law enforcement on June 1, 2020 because the USPP erected a larger fence outside the White House complex — not because of Trump’s walk across Lafayette Park to get stuck. to hold up a Bible for St. John’s Church.
Media reports at the time linked the two incidents, creating a split-screen moment — Trump spoke of “law and order” in the White House’s Rose Garden as protesters for racial justice were purged by police using pepperballs, flashing bangs and CS gas – one of the products commonly referred to as “tear gas.”
Trump, flanked by White House aides and some military officials, then made his way through the park holding up the Bible — what the White House hoped would be a showdown after George Floyd’s demonstrations spiraled out of control and part were set on fire from St. John’s basement.
Instead, Trump was criticized for gassing people to take a picture.
The report also revealed that it was the DC Metropolitan Police Department that used the CS gas on protesters.
In the immediate aftermath of the June 1 incident, both the US park police and the White House denied that law enforcement officers used “tear gas,” which is especially problematic during a pandemic, medical experts warned.
In his statement on Thursday, Trump went on to discuss McGahn’s new testimony.
“And I was completely acquitted in Congress by the testimony of former White House attorney Don McGahn,” Trump wrote. “It came, it went, and it was a big noob,” he said.
‘NOTHINGBURGER’: Former White House counsel, Don McGahn, testified before the House Judiciary Committee in a closed-door session Friday, supporting parts of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, but was careful not to say Trump is pursuing legal action hindered
McGahn’s testimony, which he gave behind closed doors to the House Judiciary Committee on Friday, contained no new disclosures, but supported parts of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
McGahn contradicted Trump, saying he was pressured by the then president to try to remove Mueller over conflict of interest claims.
McGahn told lawmakers he was deeply concerned after he received a call from Trump on a Saturday in 2017 asking him to call Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to request that Mueller be fired.
“How did I feel after calling the president?” said McGahn. ‘Oof. Frustrated, alarmed, trapped. Lots of emotions.’
McGahn said he feared that if Trump removed Mueller or interfered with the investigation, he would be charged with obstruction of justice.
McGahn, however, would not admit that that line had been crossed.
Mueller’s report outlined one way Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice, but didn’t go that far — allowing Trump to claim he was “completely acquitted of the Mueller witch hunt.”
At the end of his statement on Thursday, Trump claimed he was still being persecuted.
The prosecutor in the Manhattan-based Trump criminal investigation has assembled a grand jury to weigh possible charges against the ex-president over his business dealings.
“But fear not, radical left, land-destroying, illegal witch hunts continue, and I will win them too!” said Trump.
Later Thursday, Trump voted again, likely in response to G7 leaders calling on the World Health Organization to re-examine the origins of COVID-19.
“It is now unanimous, and I have been proved right (once again) that the original World Health Organization report on the Wuhan lab was flawed and needs to be redone, this time through a truly transparent investigation,” Trump said. “We were right about the China virus from the start, and now the whole world is seeing it.”
Biden has criticized Trump for his use of the “China virus” linking it to the rise in hate crimes against Asians in the United States.
“This is why the Chinese Communist Party has to pay $10 trillion in global reparations for what they allowed to happen, the worst event in world history,” the former president continued.
“Even here in the United States, so-called experts like Dr. Fauci was wrong all along about the Wuhan Lab and the role of China. Just think how bad it would have gotten if I took the advice of Dr. Fauci and never stopped traveling from China (and other things)? dr. Fauci likes to say that he is ‘science’ when in fact he is just science fiction!’ Trump added.
Late last month, Biden asked US intelligence agencies to assess the origins of COVID-19 when an earlier report said officials could not say definitively whether the coronavirus strain came from an animal-to-human interaction or from a lab.
