  • Trump supporters might "demand" a third term?

    As an aside in a Presidential tweet, Trump asked (tongue in cheek, I hope) "do you think the people would demand that I stay longer? KEEP AMERICA GREAT" after the end of his hypothetical second term. Surely he can't be serious? Right? No matter what his supporters might "demand," it's not that easy to amend the Constitution. https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.46c703a578db.

    Well, they do think it's their country. And they have a president who cares not one iota about convention and tradition, let alone every damned thing about our government. So yeah, dictator light is in Mr. Bone Spur's head.
    His supporters? I don't know. I don't think even they would go for that.
    But these are strange times we live in, when "there are good people on both sides" and "I don't know, I'd have to look at it". The guy is a total dick of a president.
    George Washington was the man who never told a lie. Richard Nixon was the man who never told the truth. Donald Trump is the man who doesn't know the difference.
    Venezuela is what happens when you have Trump without the Madison.

        He also wants to outlaw flag burning. The congressmen proposing the ban know it will require a constitutional amendment. I’m not sure if Trump has yet developed a concept of the constitution.
        For those who prefer to listen rather than read and who ask these questions: What underlying crimes were being investigated when Trump obstructed justice? Why wasn't he indicted? Why did Mueller discuss indicting a sitting president in Volume II but not Volume I?

            I suspect he'd be forcefully removed. If he and his supporters tried to violently force the issue I think they'd be surprised how many of us love our country and it's Constitution, even a lot of trumpsters.

              He probably won't refuse to go, but being the kind of "tactician" he is, an attempted at a state of emergency/martial law to extend his term/rule is a very probable scenario.

                Can't read the gated article, but I wonder what form the "demands" would take.

                  I believe there is virtually no chance whatever of such.
                  People; opponents of Obama as well as several other Presidents have predicted similar White House power grabs.
                  It is impossible for me to imagine a scenario where this would actually happen. And if it ever did, it would be over before your evening rush hour commute.

                  Trump is not creepy. He is lovable and charming.

                    Trump should just declare himself KING of America and do away with elections altogether

                      My guess is that the demands would be in the form of racist memes.

                        I'm sure he has declared himself so, at least to himself.

                          exactly. i think he's just throwing another turd in the punch bowl because that's what he likes to do...plus, there's that little issue of getting the second term first - all the polling being reported shows him handily beaten by almost any of the contenders...

                            He's trolling. It's actually kind of funny. Nobody would want a 3rd term. Of course, if it was a choice between a 3rd term and facing indictments, who knows?

                            Reprehensible as it was, gassing was a conventional and accepted method for execution at the time. It is a stretch to equivocate the two.

                              That's at least a couple times now I've noticed him trial ballooning of the idea.
