Pres Trump is entitled to only what the Constitution says he is entitled to.

With whom does Pres Trump plan to negotiate?

I see he's back slurring his words.
Need to work on that first.

40% of the country will still vote for him.

Just think how much better this country would be without that 40%.

If he can run in 2024, so can Obama.

Pretty sure that the constitution specifies that nobody gets to be president more than two terms.

Trump just wants to be officially on hand when we get that 2.3 million American dead from COVID.

This is where I become genuinely interested in the views of Trump supporters. But then again, if you kids were honest, it would simply confirm every bad thing thought about you. So, keep quiet about it. But we do know what you're thinking.

He's doing this just to rile the left up. You're falling for it. This isn't the first time he's said something stupid like this. He likes pissing off the left. As a Trump supporter, he can say this all he wants but he's got something called the constitution in his way.

"He's doing this just to rile the left up."

What are you going to say to rile up the left today, Mr. President?

How about suggesting I'm entitled to a 3rd term?

Oh yeah...that'll really piss them off!!

Do you think that is something a President should be doing? Yes or no question.

Pay close attention to this message. When Trump floats these trial balloons, they are either shot down and he replies that 'I was joking'. When not shot down, they are repeated and the Trump Crime Machine does its worst, to make things like this a reality. This comment should be shouted down--NOW. Arguing that it is against the law means nothing to the GOP criminal element. A few more peeps out of Trump on this topic and Crazy Bill Barr (aka "Trump's Roy Cohn") will roll out some lefthanded analysis of the 22nd Amendment, and will declare that it doesn't say what it says, and that the amendment doesn't apply to Trump...

Trumpites won't shout it down because they want it to happen.

Supporters of American democracy these people are not.

When Trump uses the word "negotiate" he really means buy off, bribe, intimidate, and threaten, etc.

IOW, win by any dirty, double-dealing means possible.

When leaders talk openly about destroying governmental norms and traditions,listen carefully,they are Not joking. They are in grim Ernest.

Trump wants to be president for life with a family succession after his death. He cares NOTHING for freedom or good governance. His whole thinking is about dynastic rule.

He will have to be forced out. I don't see him leaving office peacefully. Even a landslide against him would not be enough.

Prepare, the next six months will determine how America is ruled for years to come. Our whole system is at risk. If Trump is soundly defeated,and the people accept the result we may be ok,for now.

If there is any doubt about the elections,our whole society may become like Yugoslavia,or at least like Argentina under Peron.

I hope I'm wrong.

Donald Trump is not leaving office. If he leaves his businesses and life will be destroyed. Leaving is not an option. Does he seem like a politician concerned about an election? Politicians trying to win reelection appeal to the masses. He is not playing to the masses. The election is over and you haven't been told yet.

The 2 term limit is an amendment not written into the constitution itself. So a new amendment could be written to nullify the 22nd. If the Republicans hold the senate and take congress then it would be up to the states to stop it.

Remember it's not just about the presidency this election down ballot will count as much or more.

I agree with this, except for the very last sentence. Biden may well clearly win.

Trump will try to stay on, nonetheless. Extra-Constitutional staying-on is something referred to as a coup. Trump will try to stay on because his life does indeed depend upon it and because he is crazy: grandiose and delusional.

Trump will try to stay on because, as is correctly said, his willing subjects will forgive him anything, excuse him anything. I look forward to a better world in which we can perform psychological autopsies on these freaks at leisure.

Donald Trump DOES act like he's not going anyplace. More chilling is that William Barr projects the same thing.

They would need a 2/3 majority in both houses... I don't see that happening.

What's the difference between Trump and Putin?.... At least Putin served his country before taking it over.

If anybody is falling for anything, it is Trump's base falling for everything he says.

At this point in the election cycle, Pres Trump is not saying anything to rile up the left.

He is saying everything to keep his base, energize his base, and expand the voters who will vote for him.

If Bloomberg could convince NYC Democrats to change the constitution to give him a third term as mayor I don't see any reason why Trump couldn't do the same. That said, he's just trolling. He knows we freak out over every single stupid thing he says.

The only thing Trumpy is entitled to is a cell a cot and three meals. And if he misbehaves then two meals.

It was a republicl0wn idea to make it two terms only.

FDR was accused of being a socialist too. Hated by conservatives.

Just like Bernie.

Did more for Americans than he's remembered for.

2/3 of both the House and Senate have to approve it.

Then 75% of the states have to approve it.

Remote at best prospects to give a tyrant a vanity amendment.

FDR was accused of being a socialist too.

The 1% love to label anything that helps the 99% of Americans that are not them as socialism.

Social security...highway system...SEC...FAA...Medicare...minimum wage...all socialist hellscapes because it spends tax dollars on the nation and not the 1%.
