Trump is 'plotting comeback and wants vengeance', ex ally says as fans push for him to be reinstated this month
DONALD Trump is reportedly plotting a comeback with his MAGA "army" and "wants vengeance" after his fans pushed for him to be reinstated this month.
Former campaign manager Brad Parscale is quoted in new book Peril as saying: "He had an army. An army for Trump. He wants that back."
Discussing a possible 2024 run, Parscale adds: "I don’t think he sees it as a comeback. He sees it as vengeance."
The former president's supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6 after Trump's election defeat to Joe Biden.
A QAnon conspiracy theory claimed Trump would be reinstated earlier this month.
That led to the Department of Homeland Security warning of MAGA supporter violence if Trump was not returned to the White House.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell had also bizarrely claimed the Supreme Court would reinstate Trump on August 13.
Biden defeated Trump, but baseless narratives have suggested the vote was rigged against the Republican.
Five people died during the DC siege, including one US Capitol Police Officer.
Hundreds of people have since been arrested.
Peril, the new book by Watergate journalist Bob Woodward, 78, calls the period around the 2020 election "one of the most dangerous periods in American history."
