There's little doubt that at least part of this is projection. The Democrats have been trying to stage a slow motion coup since Trump was elected. They don't have the balls to do something as audacious as refusing to leave office, but they can see that Trump has the courage to do something like that if he was inclined to do so.One of the Democrats’ more lunatic themes is their insistence that if President Trump loses the election, he likely will refuse to leave office, in effect staging a coup. Most recently the claim was made by Bernie Sanders. Politico headlined: “Sanders: America must be prepared for when Trump refuses to leave office.” Link.
But there is nothing that Trump has done in office that would suggest that he would break the law that way. He has always followed the law and stayed within his authority in his executive actions. All of his actions are predicated on the basis of legal council. Even the celebration he held in the White House Lawn for the RNC was cleared with the election commission before hand.
So don't worry, dems. If you manage to beat Trump he will leave quietly. Or maybe not quietly but legally at least.
