The danger that Donald Trump presents if by some madness he came back to the Presidency in 2025 is best represented by the military leadership that worked with him, and did their best to control his dangerous tendencies toward Fascist authoritarianism.
The military is not to be loyal to any President, but instead to the Constitution of the United States, and the following four generals have expressed dismay and concern about both what happened during the Trump Presidency, and the continuing threat Trump represents.
They all make clear that a return to the Oval Office by Trump would be a national disaster.
These generals have been attacked and vilified by Trump, and the most recent case is General Mark Milley, who Trump has said should be executed for treason, a totally crazy assertion, but causing the now retired Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to need security to protect him and his family from deranged Trump supporters, who might take him up on his assertion and possibly threaten Milley in his retirement.
But former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who was a Four Star General and worked under Trump as Secretary of Defense from 2017-2019; H R McMaster, Lieutenant General who served as National Security Adviser to Trump from 2017-2018; and John Kelly, a General who served under Trump as Secretary of Homeland Security and then White House Chief of Staff from 2017-2019, all have sounded the alarm bell, with Kelly doing so most recently in the past couple of days.
