What Happens if Trump Won't Step Down?


The same exact thing that happened when Obama wouldn't step down.

People and their irrational fears; time for a lot of adults to take a time out. It would be good for their health.


Now here is a rational fear you should be worried over.

What happens when the Republican's decide to resist the new Democratic president at all costs? Pull out all the stops; from stretching out impeachment calls for the entirety of the Democratic President term to criticizing what he chooses to eat. Changing congressional rules at will to stymie the new president and judge shop to overturn everything the new president tries to do?

The childishness started under Obama; it siverly escalated under trump and we can fear it will reach even higher under the next president.

Thank you for coming, I was especially looking forward to talking with you. I mean that sincerely.

I typed out the debate transcript, essentially because I wanted you to read it. It's in post 2 of this thread. I honestly want you to comment on Hillary's comment before Trump gets his last dig in, then Chris moves it along:


Clinton: You know, that is not the way our democracy works. We've been around for two hundred and forty years, we've had free and fair elections, we've accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. You know, President Obama said the other day, when you're whining before...

moderator: Hold, hold, hold on folks...

Clinton: ...before the game is even...

moderator: Hold on folks...

Clinton: ...finished, it just shows, you, you're not up to doing the job. And let's, you know, let's be clear about what he is saying, and what that means, he is denigrating, he's talkin' down, our democracy, and I, for one, am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.


Now, partisanship aside, previous animosity aside, can you see how this looks completely hypocritical? She lambasted the guy for the very behavior she and her followers immediately displayed with great abandon just days later. Can you meet us halfway, at least? At least acknowledge that this was something an a$$hole says, in retrospect?

Yes, in retrospect. She had every reason to believe she was going to win. Most every news outlet projected her win. Then she lost, and couldn't even concede that loss until the next day. That is what is unprecedented.

Then accusations of Russian interference, and I know you tend to believe that it's true, and that he didn't legitimately win without the interference of the Russians. That's not what the data suggests, though. He won by winning the majority of the states, but not only that, by winning the majority of electoral votes, which is right and proper. The President represents the States, not the People. Congress is supposed to represent the people, and not the States. Why, then, should a popular vote elect both the Congress and the President? It shouldn't.

And indeed, here we have a former official from the previous admin warning that "checks" aren't being observed, and the Electoral College is exactly one of those checks, one that makes sure the Executive branch is aligned with the will of the States, while the Congress remains aligned with the will of the people, and the Judiciary remains aligned with neither. Oui Voila, the constitutional republic! The best form of government ever invented! Imperfect, for sure, but better than the rest. That's what makes America great! I mean nobody's perfect! But we can strive to be better!

Love you silly.

Nobody has forgotten the whole "rigged" election calls coming from trump in 2016.

When asked if he would accept the election results he pretty much said only if I win.


And when he did finally win we all found out that it was the Democrats we needed to worry about not accepting the election results.

Its a very interesting psychology phenomena someone should write a paper on. A two tribal system where each is deathly afraid the other will act exactly how they are inclined to act themselves. The utter disregard each pays to self introspection and self regulation while demanding nothing less than perfection from the other.

Anything walking upright will beat trump.

We are over him.
The whole country is over him.
He is a goner.

This crowd is not going to be enough to put him over the top and expecting 2016 again after what he has done the past couple of years is a pipe dream.

He is going down and then he is going to jail.

Lock him up... Lock him up... Lock him up...

This is so far-fetched and about as likely as the scenario of the ridiculous movie "Olympus Has Fallen" coming true.

Why would Trump refuse to step down if he were defeated?

What US President in the history of recent US Presidents has ever refused to step down?!

That hasn't been my experience; I live in a liberal affluent east coast area and support for Trump has never been higher amongst my peers. To be clear i'm not saying everyone I speak too approves of him or will be voting for him. But back in 2016 I'd say the ratio was 90-10 in favor of Hillary, where Trump supporters mostly kept to themselves. Now it feels more like 50-40 in favor of the Democrat and Trump supporters can't stop telling you how much they support the guy.

His support has grown since 2016; I don't know if its enough to put him over the top but your notion that "the whole country is over him" is completely wrong.

Really?

I think you need to get out more...

My part of the south thinks rather highly of him. So, too, do many people in the West.

Goner? Yeah. Considering the nitwits running against him so far? Not so fast.

The answer you're looking for is not one of them.

Mostly they're glad it's over. Either because 8 years is more than enough, or they've discovered that losing the election means they can become private citizens again. Emphasis on the "private"...living in a gilded cage can not be real comfortable most of the time.

Its a lot simpler than that. The secret service simply escort him out of the white house and into custody. Once he is out of the building its business as usual for whoever is elected to succeed him.

No thanks. As much as liberals are starting to hate him now, Washington set the precedent for a reason. There was no law, the people wanted him to stay, but he didn't. Brilliant man.


You have to admit, it would be rather funny if he won by so much he had enough power to amend the constitution and stay for a 3rd term...
I'd pay good money to see that.

That Amendment was first floated after Reagan won the 1984 election by such a margin it was insane. Like George Washington level of re-election results. But even that stipulated that Reagan would not be eligible for a third term. Probably why it failed, but that is another story.

I guess the question isn’t so much as to if won’t step down but as to why he won’t step down. Tyrannical reasons of ego? He would be out on the street before the inauguration was even close. Pence would be the fill in for the couple months. Some legit reasons with proof? Don’t send over the Sergeant at Arms of the Senate just yet. Fun fact: That is the only law enforcement officer in the US that has the full legal power to arrest the sitting President, but has to be ordered by the Senate in order to do so. Presidents can accept arrest (turn themselves in) to anyone.

I am not being serious.
It's not even remotely possible he'll try and stay a 3rd term.
Just amusing to think of the reactions.

What would this look like I wonder?

Maybe in an effort to keep power, he will hire a former spy to get fake dirt on his opponents from a foreign power

Then he will use that dirt and have his intel agencies spy on his opponents

And maybe he will leak a bunch of misleading stuff to the press about it

Oh wait, sorry!

The Dems and media have told us that is all ok!



BWAAAAHHHHH!!! No ish.

The Left orchestrated a coup attempt and THEY are self triggering about Trump not stepping down if defeated. I’m pretty sure POTUS Trump would vacate the White House the day after the election. He’d probably be relieved.

You QUIT. Pretty simple. This is as ridiculous as when some on the right claimed President Obama wouldn't leave office. He is just as big a narrcisit as Trump, you almost have to be to put yourself through the entire process which has become even crazier in the last decade.

There is no way anyone, Trump nor Obama could pull something like this, which would recieve little if any support. Our military is the most diverse in the world and would not support, the Federal LEO agencies would not support, I cant even imagine a private organization taking up this cause. There could be at least initially legal challenges and almost every election is contested one way or another but some organized attempt to usurp power is just nonsense.

The closest we have ever come is what we are attempting to investigate now with the FBI and other agencies appearing to illegally gather Intel on a candidate in an alleged attempt to use it against him. Not ready to sign off on it just yet but it sure is leaning that direction
