General Milley tells the Economic Club of New York that neither Russia nor Ukraine, in his opinion, can win the war. Diplomats, he believes, need to start looking for ways to begin negotiations.

“When there’s an opportunity to negotiate, when peace can be achieved, seize it,” he says.

The remarks cause a furor: Ukrainians worry that the Biden administration is preparing to abandon them, and White House officials scramble to reassure them that U.S. support remains solid.

INSIDER: Elon Musk's biographer says X CEO's rocky interview was 'not a pretty sight' but she's 'the right person' for the job

"He didn't need another engineer," Isaacson said at an event hosted by the Economic Club of New York. "He needed somebody who understood human emotions and advertising desires, and so Linda's the right person, but even yesterday at the Code Conference, it was not a pretty sight. I guess I should be neutral, I shouldn't care, but I'm actually praying for her to succeed because I like her and it's exactly what Twitter needs."
