Was Trump planning a coup last November? Or is some hack just trying to sell some books?

H/T The Right Scoop

President Trump just responded to the absurd fears of General Mark Milley, as recounted in a new book, that Trump was planning a coup after the November election.

First, here’s the background:

CNN – The top US military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, was so shaken that then-President Donald Trump and his allies might attempt a coup or take other dangerous or illegal measures after the November election that Milley and other top officials informally planned for different ways to stop Trump, according to excerpts of an upcoming book obtained by CNN.

The book, from Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, describes how Milley and the other Joint Chiefs discussed a plan to resign, one-by-one, rather than carry out orders from Trump that they considered to be illegal, dangerous or ill-advised.

“It was a kind of Saturday Night Massacre in reverse,” Leonnig and Rucker write.

The book recounts how for the first time in modern US history the nation’s top military officer, whose role is to advise the president, was preparing for a showdown with the commander in chief because he feared a coup attempt after Trump lost the November election.

Go read it all, including President Trump’s response. Frankly, when you consider all the patently false things the left accused Trump, of, I am not surprised someone would go there. Gotta sell books right?
