Before the coup in Bolivia, Evo Morales declared he had audio recordings stating that the opposition had decided not to acknowledge his election if he won the majority vote. He knew a coup was going to take place.

He then won the election, and the coup occurred. The opposition in the coup was funded by the US, and Jeanine Añez, whose party won only 4% of the votes, is a far-right Christian fundamentalist.

Because the world's largest reserves of Lithium are in Bolivia, it's pretty clear that the US is working to gain a monopoly on the main component of electric vehicle batteries, at the same time as it stamps out a left wing government that nationalised various industries, killing two birds with one coup.
