On Monday, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that former President Trump has been telling associates that he expects to be restored to the presidency by August, after Joe Biden's election is overturned. President Biden, of course, legitimately won the 2020 U.S. presidential election, and decisively beat Trump in the Electoral College and popular vote. There is zero evidence to support that Trump will be back in office this summer, or at any time during the rest of Biden's term.

In the past few weeks, two people close to Trump told The Daily Beast, the ex-president had begun increasingly quizzing confidants about a potential August return to power. What's more, he claimed that a lot of "highly respected" people—who Trump did not name—have been saying it's possible. Both of these sources said they decided not to tell the former president what they were thinking, which was that it's not going to happen.

It's unclear, exactly, who these "highly respected" individuals are, and who first got the August chatter in Trump's ear. But the August deadline tracks with comments made by Lindell, one of the ex-president's most ardent supporters and personal friends.
