Violates the 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution. Can't be done unless the amendment is repealed, which would take an amendment. Not gonna happen.


Not when the republicans will have the House and Senate. The Democrats have killed themselves. Unless a viable party can step up and challenge the Republicans, this might become a reality.


No, it will not. Like I said, the 22nd amendment prohibits more than 2 terms. It doesn't matter if the GOP holds both houses. They still cannot override the Constitution with a vote. The only way to override it is to repeal it, just like they did with prohibition. And that would require a vote in each state with 75% approving. The GOP might very well win the presidencey in 2024, but not with Trump.

This is basic civics you ought to have learned in high school.


After this impeachment fiasco I will be surprised if the Republicans only have 75% of the House and Senate after the next 2 elections. The Dems are over. They destroyed themselves by their own resistance to the will of the people.

www.ozy.com... wonder if he read this ozy article that i had thought was satire.......

Let’s take a semiserious trip into the not-too-distant future … It’s the early hours of Nov. 4, 2020, and the networks have just called it: Donald Trump has been reelected president of the United States. Late-arriving returns from Wisconsin seal the 270-268 electoral college squeaker against Elizabeth Warren, even though Trump lost the popular vote by an even wider margin than in 2016. The president is triumphant but exhausted. His eldest son is feeling puckish. Relaxing in a Trump Tower suite with a club soda and a few pals, Donald Trump Jr. fires off a tweet: “Best POTUS ever!!! Let’s do this again in 2024! #threetermpresident.” The author of a book called Triggered, the provocateur knows well how to cause a Twitter tempest. He shows his dad as the likes and RTs pile up. The president smirks. Nov. 5, 2020 Trump gives a triumphant Roosevelt Room news conference for the White House press corps. Toward the end of the rollicking hour-and-a-half session, long after the news alerts pop that Trump blew off accusations of Saudi interference in the election and announced a pardon of Roger Stone, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl asks about that Trump Jr. tweet. “Of course you would ask such a rude and negative question,” Trump begins. “No one has ever had the kind of success that I’ve had, with a massive victory and the economy doing the best it ever has in the history of our country. Look at how much the stock market is up. I did not see what Don Jr. said. I was mostly focused on beating Pocahontas and the phony impeachment witch hunts and the fake news — really you should say I won three times. And that’s enough.” Nov. 12, 2020 Trump does a sit-down interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in the Map Room of the White House. Carlson begins, “Mr. President, I just want to note the overwhelming response that’s been out there with people wanting — nay, demanding — a third Trump term. What do you have to say about it?” The president smiles. “Well, Tucker, it’s funny you should ask that, because I have been hearing the same thing. And there are a great many people who are just doing great in the Trump economy, and they ask me all the time: ‘Sir, why can’t you run again?’ And I say, well, there’s this little amendment to the Constitution. And they say that shouldn’t stop anyone, so I will just say we’re taking a look at it very closely. It’s not something that I want to do but if I have to do it, it’s something that we will talk about, so we will see.” Cable news has a meltdown. Don Lemon needs an oxygen mask that night on CNN. Nov. 14, 2020 Headline in conservative National Review magazine: “Media loses its collective mind over silly Trump third term trial balloon.” Nov. 17, 2020 Excerpt from a Wall Street Journal editorial: “Of course, we disagree with Trump challenging norms with a constitutionally questionable choice of running for a third term. But it’s worth pointing out how much the Democrat-media establishment loves FDR, and he won four terms.” Dec. 13, 2020 A confidential memo from White House Counsel Pat Cipollone circulates among senior staff: “The text of the 22nd amendment to the Constitution reads, in part: ‘No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.’ But given how the president’s opponents have called both wins illegitimate, we believe we have an opening to argue in court that they are correct — President Trump has not yet been duly elected and thus is free to run again.”


i mean i guess the dems didnt consider his election legitimate but i really really really dont see trump trying to get rid of an amendment,perhaps ivanka,melinia or another family wants to run in 2024 lol unless trump wants to go from potus to some senate/house/govenor seat somewhere which i dont think gets done often in politics........ or it could just be some one trolling or a typo?

edit to add no way the republicans vote to reppeal the 22nd because then obama would come back and the dems would go all in

constitutioncenter.org... but this is what it would take to reppeal/change an amendment......

The Constitution’s Article V requires that an amendment be proposed by two-thirds of the House and Senate, or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the state legislatures. It is up to the states to approve a new amendment, with three-quarters of the states voting to ratifying it. The one instance of an amendment appeal, the 21st Amendment, shows how this unusual process works. The 18th Amendment ratified in 1919 prohibited “the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors” nationwide under most circumstances. By the early 1930s, Prohibition had become unpopular and Congress passed the 21st Amendment, with its repeal provision, in February 1933 just before Franklin Roosevelt became President. The amendment proposed for ratification included language never used before but permitted under Article V: state conventions (and not state legislatures) would be called for ratification votes, out of fear the temperance lobby would influence state lawmakers.
so 2/3rds of house ,2/3rds of senate to propose the amendment,then 3/4ths of the states voting for it ....has any president since reagan won 3/4ths of the states?

It would be wild to hear the reasons for why there should be terms limits coming from people who don't want term limits on their positions in Government.

A third term is unlikely but the thought of it will make the D's more frantic and outraged. This will cause them to make even more mistakes in their death spiral.
Huckabee isn't kidding; he is dead serious with this tactic.

It's a fanciful notion that the "Dems are over." They aren't. And it's a fanciful notion that the 22nd amendment can be disregarded because a few dems "think" he didn't win. Of course he did. The election was officially certified according to the laws of the land. End of story.

This idea of a 3rd term is as delusional as the Dems. It's laughable. Get with the program here and concentrate on 2020.

i guess the only other option in theory is he decides screw it and not run in 2020 and then decides to run in 2024 lol but that would seem counter intuitive or huckabee is like trolling HARD and is really talking about don JR

It was delusional to think that Trump was going to become President according to the Dems. Remember? I believe the possibility that Republicans could be in a position to repeal an amendment is very much inside the realm of possibility. To dismiss it as delusional almost makes me believe it will be a certainty.

Actually, I don't think it's illegal for a two term president to run as vice president. I doubt if it would fly at all for the president to immediately step down on purpose though. That would definitely be impeachable.

And Obama didn't even support Biden running in the first place, so there's also that.

i THINK it would effect succession though like say don Jr wins trump is his VP trump has been president for 2 terms for example he cant then ascend to the presidency and it would go to speaker of the house who ever that may be. or would it not could because no one votes for the VP and its not him being elected? but i thought the verbiage was different so like you only get 2x terms no matter what , he said he was gonna talk about it on fox tonight has that aired or is it a possibility that he could have had his twitter hacked?


and as a side note i messaged the link to like 4 of my left leaning friends and they are like not happy at it even being a possible joke lol so if hes trolling it seems to be working so far

edit to add the only way i can see it working is a like "shadow president" kind of thing don JR wins and lets trump SR call all the shots and be president in all but name.........like the old dem jokes bush dont talk when cheynee is drinking water

I have a feeling it is a well done troll. Very well done. I am watching Hannity right now and as of yet there is no mention of it.

I'd think Hannity would have it on his Twitter page if it was true.

Definitely a troll...just said it on Hannity.

Per the Democrats, this term was "illegitimate," they claim he didn't win the election, and they refuse to acknowledge he is holding the office, calling him an occupier or worse... so it wouldn't exactly be kosher to count it against the 22nd Amendment's clear definition of holding the office, now would it?


Trump can't have it both ways. He can't claim to have accomplished more than any other US President, take credit for a good economy, low unemployment, trade accomplishments, yada, yada, yada, and then claim he was gypped of his first term because the Dem's didn't recognize his "legitimacy".

That would be a correct statement . The Democrats are moving away from the problem , which is the Progressive Liberals that call themselves Democrats.

Why not ?
Just think of the rest of the good things he could have done , if not for the Democratic obstruction .
Denying ignorance.
Why ?
Sometimes it is deserved.
