Former president Donald Trump has been telling his supporters and close circle that he will become president once again by this August.
According to a report, Michael Flynn, his National Security Advisor, tells sources that a “Myanman-style coup should happen”.
Maggie Haberman from New York Times comments on the CNN story, revealing details that Trump supporters were expressing their support for the coup to bring Trump back and Biden out of office.
Trump has been telling people that have been in his life that he expects to be back in office by August, says a journalist on social media platform, Twitter.
The tweet reads: “Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn’t how it works but simply sharing the information).
Since Trump is not president anymore, he lost the legal protections offered to the president once he left the White House back in January 2021.
He continues to push that he didn’t lose the 2020 election, saying that it was all a “big lie.” Supporters have also accepted that message and continue to spread it, and recently, a large boat parade flew flags that say “Trump won” on Memorial Day weekend.
Some of Trump’s allies have given false hope to his supporters, claiming that he could actually be reinstated in the next coming months.
Lawyer Sidney Powell comments that Trump “can simply reinstated, that a new inauguration day is set. And Biden is told to move out of the White House. And President Trump should be moved back in.” Powell has been selling an influx of conspiracy theories to Trump supporters about the race last 2020.
Trump is soon to be holding rallies this month, including swing states such as Florida, Georgia, Ohio, and North Carolina.
Other people have different opinions, such as General Michael Flynn, who states, “There is NO reasons whatsoever for any coup in America, and I do not and have not at any time called for any action of that sort.” Flynn also comments that he is “no stranger to media manipulating my words and therefore let me repeat my response to a question asked at the conference: There is no reason it (a coup) should happen here (in America).”
