Re: Does Trump Want To Be President?

Post by Steve3007 »

Back to our favourite ex US president:

Even at this early stage, are we thinking it's a racing certainty that Trump will win an historic 2nd (he would say 3rd) term in 2024? It's looking that way as events unfold in the run-up to next year's mid-terms. Choosing Biden this time around seems to have pretty much guaranteed that it won't be Biden in '24, hasn't it? So that would mean Biden would have to decline to run next time. Leaving, presumably, Kamala Harris as the Democrat candidate. Therefore a near-certain Trump win.

If that happens, constitutionally, since his 1st and 2nd terms won't be contiguous, would Trump be able to run again in '28? Would that be allowed? If so, and if he was up for that, I guess we might then have the curious spectacle of Trump deciding to play down the claims that Biden's 2020 win was a steal, lest that scupper his chances of a 3rd (he wouldn't say 4th) term.

It all sounds like it's going to be very entertaining. And I think solar eclipses across the US in 2017 and 2024 perhaps tell us what God thinks about it all. (I saw the 2017 one and I'm intending to see the 2024 one too.)

When Trump won in 2016, not long before I went to the US to see the eclipse a few months later, I kind of half considered cancelling the trip. If he wins in 2024, assuming planes are still allowed to fly then, I don't think I'll have those same reservations. They say that history repeats itself first as tragedy then as farce. I'm looking forward to the farce.

I disagree. This topic isn't about convincing any voters on who to vote for. It is convincing them to vote. Trump on the ballot is probably the most effective Democratic voter turnout machine ever invented.

A Trump surrogate, not so much.

In this last election Trump said the only way he could lose is if the election was rigged - And after he did lose he went about trying to
rig the election by claiming fraud - And you can bet that Trump knows a lot about fraud - He is a master of 'the big lie' which is a prelude to election fraud.

Trump can run for office if he is not charged for his criminal activity in the past elections and his attempt to rig the results and steal the election from Biden.

In my opinion the only way Trump can win back the Presidency is by fraud - And if he wins the next Presidential election it will be by
chicanery - Still the law may catch up to Trump before this happens and the Republican Party may wake-up and get the Trump addiction off its back. :?:
