I doubt his health mental and or physical will hold out long enough to finish this first term , much less go the gas on a 2nd one.
Who here would be surprised that if Trump sr. health goes south , little jr. will try
to step up claiming its his right as first born or he's been groomed to fill daddy's shoes or some such bull s*** ?
You could well be right.
If I were Trump, I would start talking term limits. I would say that I was not going to run because there should be term limits. He could probably get some of his buddies like Lindsey Graham to put up a bill to limit the Presidency to one 6 year term.... it wouldn't work, but that isn't the point. By talking term limits Trump could say, I'm the greatest president ever in the USA, I save our economy, saved our military, defended out dignity abroad, put two conservative justices on the Supreme Court
(and it might be more by the end of term)and tried to get the Wall... but Democrats and the MSM are evil and thwarted that in Congress by fraudulently stealing the mid-term election by voter fraud. And I saved the Republican Party. Patriotic citizens across out country are begging me to run for a 2nd term, but I believe it is wrong...TERM LIMITS!!! So will lead by example....etc etc...
It would all be a load ob BS, but Republicans would eat it up and Trump could feed his deformed ego by claiming to be America's savior.
In addition, the odds are the the economy is going to back slide a little starting (roughly) in late 2019 or 2020. If Trump does not run again, there is a fair chance that a Democrat will win... so, a Dem wins, the economy starts a downward trend.. Trump and Republicans scream SEE! THE SOCIALIST DEMS ARE TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA!
. Dumb Americans agree and a Republican is elected in 2024. Trump touts victory on Fox News... etc...
On the other hand.... if he runs for a 2nd term and loses, he screams VOTER FRUAD!
and Republicans will do the same. If he wins a 2nd term, he actually has some degree of proof that America loves him.
At this point Trump's biggest problem is that his son and son-in-law might get indicted. That would probably kill his chance for re-election, taint his presidency and seriously damage his mental health.
I'm prepared for the worst... a 2nd term for Cadet Bone Spurs.
(Having lived through roughly 8 hurricanes, one of the biggest earthquakes in recorded history, one of the worst wild fires in California history, sand storms, blizzards, trekking through jungles and deserts, and a tour in the Iraq... preparing for and surviving the worst is what I do best.)
