Tom Steyer: I’m Worried About Trump Staging a Coup Against Democrats

Why would the sitting president need to stage a coup against a political party that currently controls nothing in America?

Speaking at a town hall in Seattle, Washington on Tuesday night, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer told the crowd that he was worried President Trump would erode democracy and tyrannically take power from the Democrats.

An audience member, who said she previously lived under a dictatorship, said she was worried that Trump would stage a military coup in the middle of the night and arrest Democrats.

“So, the question is, are we worried about the idea of a complete breakdown of civil society, an attempt to use the Justice Department for political purposes, an attempt to use it to attack political opponents regardless of whether the Justice Department believes that’s fair and called for, and whether that wouldn’t be a subversion of the rule of law we have been fighting for?” Steyer asked.

Steyer said, “Yes,” he is worried about Trump establishing authoritarianism in the country.

The Democratic mega-donor called the president “lawless” and asked “patriots” to protect America’s democratic system from his dictatorial transformations.

It’s not clear exactly why President Trump would need to stage a coup against the Democratic Party, which controls neither chamber of Congress and do not occupy the presidency.
