Washington correspondent for New York Times, Maggie Haberman is in the news for reporting that former president Donald Trump expects to be 'reinstated as president' by August. Haberman tweeted a CNN report on Trump supporters and QAnon believers anticipating a 'Myanmar-style coup' that would possibly restore Trump to the White House. In addition to the tweet, the journalist wrote, "No that isn’t how it works but simply sharing the information."

Haberman further wrote, "It isn’t happening in a vacuum. It is happening as he faced the possibility of an indictment from the Manhattan DA." Emphasizing how Trump has been "laser-focused" on the "audits" in the state, she further tweeted, "But he is not putting out statements about the “audits” in states just for the sake of it." she added, "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)."

Recently, Trump supporters have been toying with the idea of the former president's reinstatement. It all started when former Trump election lawyer Sidney Powell, at an event called the For God and Country Patriot Roundup said Trump could “simply be reinstated,” on May 29, according to a Newsweek report. Powell further added that Trump should be "moved back in" to the White House but mentioned that he wouldn't be given "credit for time lost." Continuing her baseless claims, Powell added, "Because the Constitution itself sets the date for inauguration. But he should definitely get the remainder of his term and make the best of it. That's for sure."

Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn also appeared at the same convention and seemed to support the idea of a “Myanmar-style coup” that could reinstate Trump as president, as reported by CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan. Flynn, however, doubled back on his statement soon. A message posted to a Parler account used by Flynn on May 31 said, "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."

However, not all of Trump's aides believe in the idea. Jenna Ellis, another of the former president’s attorneys, said “no, President Trump is not going to be ‘reinstated.’”

Internet reacts to Maggie Haberman's tweets

People flocked to Twitter with tweets lashing out on the NYT journalist calling her a 'mouthpiece propaganda' of the former president. One user wrote, "Why the fuck does NYT Maggie Haberman think we give a shit about Donald Trump's delusional fantasy of getting back in the White House." Another said, "I’m old enough to remember Maggie Haberman’s mom doing PR for Trump when he was divorcing Ivana and having an affair with Marla Maples. Maggie can’t let go of Trump."





One tweet read, "Maggie is one of many investigative journalists who have focused on trump. I'm not sure she has more of a problem "letting go" than any of the others. Do you think she has covered him and his antics fairly and honestly?" Another user commented, "Somebody needs to tell Maggie Haberman that trump is no longer president & she can stop acting like his personal press secretary & stop reporting his every move or things he’s supposedly telling people. MSM needs to stop giving oxygen to his BS."
