Mike Pence plotted coup against Trump after p****gate tape
The stunning release of the ‘p****’ tape in October 2016 had close advisors predicting it would lead to Donald Trump’s downfall and running mate Mike Pence plotting a ‘coup,’ according to a new report on the vice president Tuesday.
The release of the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape where Trump boasted about using his celebrity and grabbing women ‘by the p***” rocked the campaign, and even persuaded some leading Trump advisors that the candidate was through.
Pence, the religiously conservative former Indiana governor who Trump selected as his running mate, was contemplating a ‘coup’ to replace Trump at the top of the ticket, the Atlantic reported.
With the party’s chances in doubt after the revelations, hours after the Washington Post broke news about the tape, ‘Pence made it clear to the Republican National Committee that he was ready to take Trump’s place as the party’s nominee,’ according to the report.
