Shaken by Trump’s ‘Fuhrer Moment,’ Gen. Milley had to Blockade Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day ‘to Keep the Nazis out’

The protagonist of the story as told is Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, the top position in the U.S. military. He was deeply alarmed that Trump kept denying that he had lost the election in late 2020, and worried that the president might try to use the FBI, the CIA and the Defense Department in such a bid. Milley saw Trump’s refusal to concede the election as a “Reichstag Moment,” saying that Trump was “preaching the gospel of the Fuhrer,” the German word for “leader,” referring to Adolf Hitler.
