Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Wednesday said he had “tremendous faith and confidence” in Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley after former President Trump blasted the four-star general over a book excerpt.

“I’ve known the chairman for a long time. We’ve fought together, we’ve served a couple of times in the same unit, so I’m not guessing at his character. He doesn’t have a political bone in his body,” Austin told reporters at the Pentagon on Wednesday.

“I clearly have tremendous faith and confidence in the chairman,” he added.

Conservatives have heavily criticized Milley in the past several weeks for newly revealed scenes during the Trump administration, written about in several recently released books.
