Trump thinks he’s “entitled” to a third term…


He can’t even count on his fingers

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…

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…

Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson established an unofficial two-term limit, though President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected to the office four times, in 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944, serving 12 years as president before his death in 1945. In February 1951, the 22nd Amendment was ratified, limiting American presidents to serving two terms in office.

Trump follows that old Republican adage…never underestimate the ignorance of the average American voter. They’ll believe a big enough lie every time.

    “In a wide-ranging speech at a campaign rally Saturday night, President Donald Trump ramped up attacks against his opponent, Joe Biden, calling Biden the “dumbest of all candidates,” and went so far as to declare, “maybe I’ll sign an executive order that you cannot have him as your president.” (Forbes) https://www.forbes.com/sites/tommybeer/2020/09/20/trump-threatens-to-issue-executive-order-preventing-biden-from-being-elected-president/#32eaa0ee76f6
