Retired Army Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the former commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, sharply criticized President Trump on Sunday, calling him immoral and untruthful and taking aim at his foreign policy decisions.
In an interview on ABC News’s “This Week,” McChrystal told host Martha Raddatz that “I don’t think he tells the truth.” The general also responded affirmatively when asked whether he believes Trump is “immoral.”
McChrystal said that contrary to Trump’s claim, the Islamic State militant group, also known as ISIS, has not been defeated.
“I don’t believe ISIS is defeated. I think ISIS is as much an idea as it is a number of ISIS fighters. There’s a lot of intelligence that says there are actually more ISIS fighters around the world now than there were a couple of years ago,” he said.
