Trump’s Contingency Plan

Headline: “White House intensifies effort to install Pentagon personnel seen as loyal to Trump.”  

Trump and his advisors are undoubtedly planning a strategy to follow if he loses the election. Following first principles, he will claim that massive voting fraud occurred; he will call it the worst crime ever committed in American history. He will refuse to concede defeat or prepare for transition of power.  He will launch lawsuits in an attempt to decertify results. He will call for a new election. Trump loyalists in the senate will launch investigations. His media allies will claim that the election results were fabricated.

Trump would like to be able to call on our military forces to stave off any effort to remove him.
