Has Trump's Next Coup Already Started?

David Pakman comments on an article by Baton Gellman from The Atlantic entitled “Trump’s Next Coup Has Already Begun.” Gellman’s main argument is that Donald Trump’s response to his 2020 election defeat was just a dry run of what he and Republicans will do in 2024 if they again come up short. Next time, the goal will be to make the coup attempt we witnessed during the presidential transition not look like a coup attempt at all. Republicans want to set up systems across the states they control in the country so they can determine which ballots will count and which can be thrown out. They are creating partisan mechanisms to certify or reject election results on the basis of party lines. As Gellman writes, “they are driving out or stripping power from election officials who refused to go along with the plot last November, aiming to replace them with exponents of the Big Lie.” In the meantime, Trump and his allies are working the public to believe that elections cannot be trusted and that there all along was reason to doubt the electoral process in the United States. All of these factors put together can make it so the next effort to subvert the electoral process is fine tuned and seemingly a fair game for them to play.
