A former White House aide said it’s not surprising that President Donald Trump would reject a peaceful transfer of power in November, adding that she and other staffers have in the past brought up the possibility behind closed doors.
“It’s frightening to me because, to be honest, during my tenure at the White House, I’ve had conversations behind closed doors with White House staffers and other government officials, including people in the intelligence community, where we’ve actually discussed what if, what if he loses and refuses to leave,” said Olivia Troye, a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence who served on the coronavirus task force.
