  1. everything is fake because why….he lost. All his law suits have been thrown out because of lack of evidence. He accepts all the Senate votes but not the votes that voted for Biden. WTF.

  2. I think Trump is looking for suicide by government because he rather be assassinated than face his fate after Jan 20, 2021.

    Is he saying you have a madman in charge of the white house? If that is the cause the military better move quick and remove this individual.This General is a ex Marine people you don’t mess with.

  4. If Trump orders a Military strike against Iran watch out

  5. The general is exactly correct. This scenario is looking like the prelude to a coup.

  6. It looks like you all Americans don’t have no idea what to do with one man

    • Chill. Trust me, the career professionals aren’t napping.

    • I agree, Americans treat trump like a spoilt child, when he is a crazy dangerous man, with a load of power. Be careful USA

      @Janet Clough I cannot agree enough with you. The idea of settling in and waiting this out til Trump “processes” the fact that he lost does not sound right to me. Not at all.

    • We know what to do! We just have congresspeople who were elected to serve the people, who only serve themselves and their own interests. They are little frightened people afraid of a crazy man whose tweets are all powerful in controlling them. THEY ARE THE IDIOTS. More than half of us voted for Biden because we DO UNDERSTAND what has to be done.

    • Exactly! We learnt lessons from Hitler. And here Trump is attempting the exact same thing! Remove him. 25th amendment!!!

  7. It is really painful to see what America come to

    • Regina Williams | November 11, 2020 at 7:18 PM | Reply

      yes we deserve so much better

    • And we voted “much better” into office! Now we just need to survive until January 20th, on OH so many fronts!

    • 1-20-21 will be here before we know it. All we need to do is keep our eyes on our prize but in the meantime, please don’t worry. Trump just trying to scare us but it’s actually that orange punk who’s actually scared. We got this you guys. I’m not just talking to my fellow Americans, I’m talking to all of my other brothers and sisters around our beautiful planet.☺

    • *Once again, be prepared for a military coup d’etat to overthrow the republic into a gestapo regime AKA WW3 Germany reborn. Remember the concentration camps … it’s unfolding.*

      It’s tragic.

  8. Trump is preparing for a coup.

    Trump will start a war and put our soldiers and citizens in harms way just to stay in office.

    • Starting a war won’t keep him in office, his term ends at 12 noon, 20 January, period…..per Constitution.

    • @Dan Newth Sorry, a war will not keep him in office! On January 20, 2021, he’s out! Thank God

    • @M G What horse sh@t. Do you think the constitution was written by God?? He has proven over and over, institutions and their charter, mean nothing to him.

    • @M G Per the War Powers Act the threat of or actual war can attain him an additional six months. Dershowitz also penned an article for “The Hill” in Jan. that laid out martial law and elections. This is planned, and there is nothing accidental about any of it. Add in the arms/jets/bomb sales to Taiwan, UAE, and Israel (who can broker elsewhere), all being pushed right now. Trump Co. already purchased an island in UAE. Halkbank and Deutschebank issues are still at the forefront, and MBS is being sued by Khashoggi’s fiancee. The election flurry is for ready spending capital for his pocket and diversion, while the real action is being implemented. It is more than just him that will go to jail. The Senate will not stand in the way. If McConnell’s arm is not from Remdesivir, then he was worked over. They need to ignore the memo and courtesy, and file indictments. It’s out of hand. I’d prefer he go to Gitmo for sedition, treason, and operating as a foreign agent, but that’s my perspective.

    • @M G You need to watch the TED talk called “What happens if a President loses an election and refuses to leave?”
      Come talk to me after you do…..

  10. Charge Trump with Treason.

  11. Hard to believe this is even happening… It’s what nightmares are made of

  12. Take trumps power away or face the consequences of his recklessness, it’s that simple.

      @IncognitoTorpedo America has voted and voted him out.

    • @angelaggie dom The Dictator is above the law.
      Dictators don’t need elections.

    • angelaggie dom | November 11, 2020 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      @Jack Boot Trump is above the law. Vladimir Putin is a dictator and Russia holds elections. A president is supposed to have 2 terms in office but Putin has decided to be above the law declares that he is a life president. Check out how he deals with his opponents.

      @Epic Story no, it isn’t
      There comes a moment in every paradigm shift where the innocent co-conspirators are faced with reality. Americans will be Americans, that’s what we do

      but know your enemy, for sure. I can denenestrate bannon anywhere on this planet – same with any of the pretenders to power. WHy can’t you? That is powerlessness, and NOT acceptable in our country nomatter republic or democratic republic

  13. Underestimate at your own peril. This must be quashed hard and fast.

  14. I would never trust the Senate to do anything. Have they stopped him so far?? Nope

  15. An unqualified president putting unqualified people in highly sensitive positions.

  16. Expect Trump to explore the outer boundaries of his power until Jan 20.

  17. If the US saw what the US is doing, the US would send the troops to the US to save the US from the US

  18. Trump is trying to build a proud boy army to protect himself and attempt a coup.

  19. If a sitting President loses their reelection, they should immediately lose all power of the oval office. Power should temporarily be transferred to Congress until the new President is sworn in.

    • For 244 years we haven’t had to worry about that. But you’re right, now the ‘norms’ no longer apply. People keep sitting around and doing nothing, thinking the ‘norms’ will keep him in check.

      Also time to look into how Presidents have way too much power, with ineffective checks on their misbehavior in the Constitution.

    • Bobbie Zaborsky | November 11, 2020 at 10:04 PM | Reply

      Not a bad idea…

  20. America, listen to this man!.. He’s NOT wrong
