An American Coup ?

As Mr. Trump removes ever more people critical of himself, I wonder if he's preparing the way for a coup. I don't think that's likely in the near future, but  it might just be possible when his presidency nears its end. That could be at the end of his present term, or if not then, four years later.

His administration seems to be a conspiracy of dishonest rich people to cover up their misdeeds, and such conspiracies are likely to come undone when the conspirators lose power, so they need to stay in power to maintain their concealment. We often learn of Presidents using dubious means to extend term limits. It's become very common in Africa, but we shouldn't ignore the possibility of something of the sort happening in the USA.
