Trump attempted a coup: here’s why it was a Coup Attempt.

Ok, I agree, it is considered as old fashioned, but I call it a coup attempt, and Trump attempted a coup. When the president of the united states encourages armed insurgents to breach the Capitol and threaten the physical safety of congress, to just remain in power, I call it a coup attempt.

On Wednesday, January 13, 2021, the rampage left five dead, including a Capitol police officer who was injured. This injury happens when he tangled with the pro-Trump mob. We are fortunate that the carnage was not too much greater. And people have been arguing what to call what happened at the U.S. Capitol.

The failed attempted coup shouldn’t blind us to its significance or the stain it has left on America. Nor to the significance of holding those responsible wholly accountable. The number 3 House Republican, Elizabeth Cheney said, “There is no question the president formed the mob, the president incited the mob, the president addressed the mob. He lit the flame.” Many said Trump should be impeached, condemned, and detached from the office immediately.

Lionel Barber reveals on his Twitter account why Trump attempted a coup.

Lionel Barber tweeted on his social media account, attaching an article that reveals the reason for the attempted coup. Mr. Barber wrote, “Easily the best analysis of Trump’s putsch by former NSC insider Fiona Hill.” Besides, he declared, “Yes, it was a coup. Here’s Why.”

The article he attached says what trump tried is called a ‘self-coup’ and he did it in slow motion and plain sight. Also, some have said it’s not a coup because the U.S. military and other armed groups weren’t involved. And some because President Trump didn’t supplicate his presidential powers in support of the mob that broke into the Capitol.

On the other hand, many point out that no one has claimed or proved there was a secret plan directed by the President. And efforts of Donald Trump to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election could never have succeeded in the first place.
