Ge. Milley says he should not have walked with Trump to church

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley said Thursday it was a "mistake" to accompany President Donald Trump and other top administration officials on a walk to historic St. John's Church after peaceful protesters were forcibly cleared from the area.

"My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics," the Army general said in remarks for a National Defense University commencement ceremony. "As a commissioned uniformed officer, it was a mistake that I have learned from, and I sincerely hope we all can learn from it."

Protests erupted in cities across the U.S. and have continued since George Floyd, an African-American man, was killed May 25 when a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
