Former President Donald Trump has reportedly "been telling people he'll be reinstated as President by August"...
It's been months since Joe Biden officially won the 2020 Election...
But Donald Trump still thinks he's coming back.
And sooner than we might expect...
Trump hasn't handled the defeat too well.
From the moment Biden was confirmed as the winner on November 7th, Trump went on a Twitter rampage - spreading lies about how the election was "stolen" from him and how Biden was nothing but a fraud.
Trump's behavior online began to escalate to dangerous levels...
And the lies he was spreading to his followers ultimately caused the shocking scenes in Washington on January 6th.
After holding a "Save America" rally just a few miles away from the prestigious Capitol building, Trump encouraged his supporters to "take the election back" and "fight like hell"...
Which lead to thousands of them storming the Capitol and unleashing true havoc.
5 people, including 1 police officer, died on that day including hundreds of others being seriously injured.
People from all around the world were horrified by the violent scenes...

And thousands began calling on Trump to intervene and to tell his followers to back down... which, of course, he refused to do along with refusing to take responsibility for the actions of the rioters.
This resulted in him being removed from Twitter and all other social media platforms for "inciting violence"...

And ever since, Trump has been painfully absent from all forms of social media.
Of course, we all know how much Trump loved running his mouth via social media...
So we can't imagine how much of a kick in the teeth this must have been for him!
The seventy-four-year-old was clearly in a huge sulk over his social media dismissal...
Like a three-year-old staging a tantrum because it’s not his birthday. "Trump has asked for a major send-off on Ina… https://t.co/4d8j4zy5xW— Michael Beschloss (@Michael Beschloss)1610685752.0
And when the day of Biden's inauguration arrived, Trump wasn't present - making him the first U.S president in decades to not attend the inauguration of his successor.
And of course, at any given opportunity, Trump has viciously torn into the president for how "bad" of a job he's been doing ever since his inauguration...
Including at the Conservative Political Action Conference on February 28th, in which Trump well and truly grilled President Biden and his administration.
"We all knew that the Biden administration was going to be bad but none of us even imagined how just how bad they would be and how far left they would go," he told the cheering crowd.
So, it's safe to say that in the world of U.S politics...
It's been an exhausting year so far.
And it looks set to continue...
As Trump has reportedly been telling people that he will be reinstated as president by August.
And people have a lot to say about it...
Trump couldn't actually believe this, could he?— John Hawkins (@johnhawkinsrwn) June 1, 2021
If he truly believes this, and I doubt he does but is using it for the grift, then he is completely unfit for office in that he has no idea that this isn’t how it works...at all— REDDOG (@ReddogOHIO) June 1, 2021
They guy won't even be reinstated to his Facebook account by August— Nunca Trumpismo (@NeverTrumpTexan) June 1, 2021
Trump acts like the Presidency is a beauty pageant and he’s the runner up and can just step in 🤣He’s so thirsty to be back in the spotlight.— Candice📚 Got Vaxed and Waxed🔥🐣 (@redshoe9) June 1, 2021
Remember when he told us he would go away if he lost?
So the man who can’t get reinstated on a social media platform expects to be reinstated as president of the United States? Has Trump ever read the Constitution or bothered to understand how the government works? Trump and @GOP and QAnon are one and the same.— James (@JamesSNYC) June 1, 2021
There really isn’t a soul in the world who actually cares about him, is there?— Lellie Don’t Get Complacent. Focus on 2022. (@auntlellie) June 1, 2021
Over the weekend, Michael Flynn, who briefly served as national security adviser for Trump, said at an event in Dallas that a Myanmar-style coup "should happen here."
Of course, he quickly backtracked, claiming his words had been twisted.
"Let me be VERY CLEAR – There is NO reason whatsoever for any coup in America, and I do not and have not at any time called for any action of that sort.
"I am no stranger to media manipulating my words and therefore let me repeat my response to a question asked at the conference: There is no reason it should happen here," he wrote in a post on Telegram.
Following that, CNN reporter Donie O'Sullivan tweeted about "talk of a Myanmar-style coup" among "some Trump supporters."

"Talk of a Myanmar-style coup in the United States has been popular among some Trump supporters and QAnon believers for months," he wrote.
To which he received a response from The New York Times' Maggie Haberman claiming Trump expects to be "reinstated" by August.
Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn’t how it works but simply sharing the information). https://t.co/kaXSXKnpF0— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) June 1, 2021
"Trump has been telling a number of people he's in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn't how it works but simply sharing the information)," she wrote.
"It isn't happening in a vacuum. It is happening as he faced the possibility of an indictment from the Manhattan DA," she added in a following tweet.
But he is not putting out statements about the “audits” in states just for the sake of it. He’s been laser focused on them, according to several people who’ve spoken with him (as well as WaPo reporting a few weeks ago).— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) June 1, 2021
