Could Trumps 100 Days of Failure Lead to Military Coup?

“On Nov. 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities and honesty to our government. This is my pledge to you,” Trump vowed in Gettysburg late last year – a few weeks before this proud & mighty nation went to the polls.
Called “Donald Trump’s Contract With The American Voter,” he pledged to immediately pursue multiple measures, including renegotiating NAFTA, proposing a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress, and labeling China as a currency manipulator.
Now approaching his first 100 days in office, without a substantial accomplishment to his name, Trump is suddenly slamming his own 100-day vision as a “ridiculous standard”.
According to a recent Politico report, Trump’s campaign pledges about his first 100 days “hangs over the West Wing like the sword of Damocles as the unofficial deadline to find its footing — or else.”
In a new poll released Thursday, 24 percent of voters gave Trump an F when asked to grade his first three months in office. He’s even struggling among his own base: 42 percent of Trump voters graded his first 100 days a B, and another 23 percent give him a C or below.
General David Petraeus would not confirm or deny that this dangerous situation could result in a a full military coup, he would not give any answer when probed about rumours of senior military officials aligning themselves with persons known to strongly dislike the way Mr. Trump has handled delicate international relations, and was unavailable for comment at the time this story was published.
