Credible threats to nation wide internet?

So I’ve worked in the Telecom industry for some time and spent a few years working on the world’s largest backbone. During my time there I was made aware that if coordinated attacks to the fiber were to happen in key areas, it could spell disaster for the nation’s internet. Is there a credible threat at this time? I know the Trump supporters are taking about some attack on tech giants and sending warnings about the internet going down. So is this just bullshit fear mongering or is there something to it?

Remember a few years ago when people were cutting fiber in manholes? That’s just a small example but this could be on a much larger scale.
