“The removal of a current government, often by force, which could also be called a coup,” columnist says
In a questionnaire response he sent to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, former President Donald Trump indicated that he felt “regime change” — in other words, a coup d’etat — was presently needed in the United States.
In a segment that aired on Monday evening, Carlson told his viewers that he had sent a questionnaire to several announced and speculated candidates that are (or could soon be) running for the 2024 Republican nomination for president. Within his survey, Carlson asked individuals to share their views on the conflict that was started by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin against Ukraine, and whether the U.S. should be involved in the matter.
To emphasize the importance of what Trump was calling for, Badash highlighted what the definition of “regime change” meant in his opinion piece that was published on Tuesday.
“‘Regime change,’ as most know, is the removal of a current government, often by force, which could also be called a coup,” Badash wrote. “If you google the definition of ‘regime change,’ you’ll find this: ‘the replacement of one administration or government by another, especially by means of military force.'”
