Donald Trump’s niece has warned of ‘dangerous’ months ahead, claiming the ‘desperate’ president is ‘planning a coup’ as Joe Biden closes in on the White House.
The ‘flailing’ US leader stunned the world on Thursday with an astonishing rant fueled by a conspiracy theory that claims the Democrats have ‘rigged’ the US election – despite no evidence of foul play.
Biden took the lead in key battlegrounds states Georgia and Pennsylvania on Friday afternoon, with the US election result hanging in the balance three days after the public cast their votes.
His niece Mary – known for writing a scathing memoir about how her family created ‘the world’s most dangerous man’ – has said he will never get over being a ‘loser’.
She told MSNBC: ‘Donald has never been in this place before. There’s nobody to bail him out. Nobody to buy him out. ‘He’s desperate.
He’s flailing. And there’s nothing he can do legitimately except watch this play out helplessly.’
She continued: ‘I think based on what he said, that’s a pretty good indication of what we could be in for especially if the Republican leadership continues to do nothing.
‘This wasn’t just Donald obfuscating or lying. This was Donald talking about an attempted coup. ‘The leader of a country trying desperately to delegitimise an election. It’s obscene and somebody’s got to step in and stop him.’
