WSHINGTON (Dispatches) - Maggie Haberman, a CNN analyst and Washington correspondent for the New York Times, sparked controversy on social media after she claimed former President Donald Trump has been telling people he will soon return to the presidency.
“Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August,” Haberman claimed on Twitter Tuesday, adding that she was “simply sharing the information”.
After another user questioned whether Haberman was referring to “the presidency”, she confirmed.
Though many social media users reacted to the claims with shock and concern, and questioned whether Trump was mentally sound, others accused Haberman of helping to spread the former president’s “propaganda” and “lies”.
The reporting comes after Flynn at a QAnon conference over the weekend was asked why there can’t be a coup in the United States like in Myanmar, and he said, “No reason, I mean, it should happen.”
