Democrats PANIC Trump Is Planning A COUP, Trump Filling Ranks With Loyalists And REFUSES To Concede. Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller recently announced Special operations would report directly to him. Resistance Democrats and media leftists have been screaming that Trump is staging a coup, a soft coup, or even planning a military coup for some time. They claim that the Trump campaign lawsuits across the US are part of his soft coup attempt even though Trump and Republicans are well within their legal right to file challenges to election results. But with the latest moves firing top Security officials and hiring loyalists these Democrats are starting to panic over the idea that Trump could just stage a classic coup and use security and military power to stay in office. Of course the reality is likely that Trump is trying to get as much done in the last few months as possible.
