Trump denies preparing a coup after the presidential election




Former U.S. President Donald Trump denies that he had plans to carry out a coup after losing the presidential election in 2020.

Earlier, CNN reported that American generals, including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Mark Milley, discussed their resignation if Donald Trump begins to give “dangerous or illegal” orders, including preparing a coup. According to CNN, information about this is contained in a book by Washington Post journalists, which has not yet been published.

“I never threatened or talked to anyone about a coup. This is ridiculous. I inform you that my form of 'coup' is elections, and even if I were going to stage a coup, one of the last people I would want to do it with would be General Mark Milley,” Mr. Trump said (quoted by The Hill).

On January 6, supporters of Mr. Trump broke into the Capitol in Washington. They wanted to disrupt the confirmation of the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election. As a result of the riots, five people were killed. The attack on the Capitol was the reason for the second impeachment of Donald Trump, but the Senate acquitted him. Mr. Trump said that the participants of the assault did not pose a threat.
