President Trump: “After we win 4 more years — we’ll ask for maybe another 4 or so.” pic.twitter.com/Tpu99LcZ5T

President Donald Trump on Saturday once again suggested interest in serving three terms in office, telling attendees of a campaign event in Nevada that he was “probably entitled” to an additional four years following a hypothetical second term.
“And 52 days from now we’re going to win Nevada, and we’re going to win four more years in the White House,” Trump told the mostly maskless, non-socially-distant crowd of his supporters on Saturday. “And then after that, we’ll negotiate, right? Because we’re probably — based on the way we were treated — we are probably entitled to another four after that.”
Trump has frequently argued that he’s been treated unfairly in comparison with his predecessors, often pointing to the Russia investigation and his impeachment. Throughout his first term as president, Trump has also frequently floated the idea that he will attempt to serve more than two terms in office.
In August, at a rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the president similarly suggested he was owed a third presidential term.
“We are going to win four more years,” Trump said last month, according to Yahoo News. “And then after that, we’ll go for another four years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years.”
This makes me wonder just how Trump plans to “negotiate” for four more years.
I mean keep in mind, as Michael Cohen keeps reminding us, Trump is NOT joking. He does not have a sense of humor.
So I think he really believes there is some way that he can finagle a third term.
So are you ready to send your mail-in ballot to vote his ass out of office now, or do you need some more convincing?
