Top US Military generals feared Trump would attempt a coup after the election and planned for ways to stop him, new book reveals


The number one US military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, and other top military officials feared that former President, Donald Trump and his allies might attempt a coup or take other dangerous or illegal measures after the November election, that they informally planned for different ways to stop him, excerpts of an upcoming book from Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker reveal.



The book, "I Alone Can Fix It," scheduled to be released next Tuesday, chronicles Trump's final year as president, with a behind-the-scenes look at how senior administration officials and Trump's inner circle navigated his behavior after losing the 2020 election. The authors interviewed Trump for more than two hours.







The book reportedly 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.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
