No matter what his supporters might "demand," it's not that easy to amend the Constitution. https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.46c703a578db.
    Classic Trump trolling. Don't take the bait.
    Jimmy Carter gave us Reagan and Obama gave us Trump. It's instructional to note that our two worst presidents in my lifetime also gave us our two best presidents of my lifetime.

      If you heard what some of the Dem candidates are proposing by executive order , you'd want a third term for our President.

          My guess would be protests. I can't see it going further.

            Yet another example of Trump either trolling the opposition, or being totally oblivious to the constitution. Which one? I wouldn't bet on it, one way or the other.

            Either way, it's embarrassing, and beneath the office he holds IMHO.

                Yeah, I figure either he's trolling or he's a lunatic. For what little peace of mind I have left I'm going to assume trolling.

                  Very plausible IMO.

                      Well, the only "people" he seems to care about are his supporters. There is always going to be a certain percentage you just can't win over. Mitt Romney got that much right (https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...no-income-tax/) but you don't simply dismiss them either.

                        I haven't heard anything that would persuade me to give the current President a third term. Perhaps a link or two would help. I'd genuinely like to know.

                          Why does the President, or anyone for that matter, feel the need to troll?

                            By his second term America will be so pro-trump that we will demand, and get, a third term. We will also imprison those that oppose us and our king.

                              or maybe not.

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