Rumor has it former President Donald Trump will take back his position in the Oval Office in August, but a new source claimed that it is not likely to happen.
For the past few days, national media have been inundated with information that the former president “has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August,”—an idea first reported by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.
Attorney Sidney Powell, who represented the Trump campaign in the past, has also claimed at the “For God & Country Patriot Roundup” event that he could “simply be reinstated” as president and fill the remainder of President Joe Biden’s term.
Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, also stated in an interview on Wednesday, June 2, that he could be responsible for Trump’s apparent certainty that he will be re-elected president in August.
However, on Thursday, CNN’s Jim Acosta told anchor Erin Burnett that he was told by a “well-placed source” that Trump has been discussing the subject, and there is little chance he is convinced about reinstatement.
“I’m told by one source—one well-placed source familiar with these conversations—he’s [Trump has] been asking, ‘What do you think of this theory?” Acosta said.
“What this one adviser told me is that he’s been told it’s not true.”
“Now, this adviser, who is familiar with these conversations, went on to say that it doesn’t appear that Trump really believes that he could somehow be reinstated or assume the presidency later on this year,” he said.
At the same time, the unidentified source also revealed that Trump somehow “believes it” and that he does think that there might be a chance to be reinstated as president as he has been asking around for commentaries. The source said the former president is “listening to all kinds of things these days, and he is trying to grasp at straws to see if there is some way to get back into the White House.”
But his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, appeared earlier on Fox News saying, “As far as I know, there are no plans for Donald Trump to be in the White House in August. Maybe there’s something I don’t know.”
“A lot of folks getting a little worked up about something just because maybe there wasn’t enough pushback from the Republican side.”
