    What if a charismatic General or Admiral seized power?

    I don't think it's possible. You would have to get too many people on board who could keep it secret.

    However, the climate is very ripe for something like this to happen.

    I would absolutely not trust Donald with the nuclear football.

    Either way, I think an assassination is more likely than a coup.

    Short answer: No.

    Long answer: Hell no.

    One of the fine features of the US is an apolitical, professional military. We should be glad we have one; other countries haven't been as lucky.
