Here’s another Trump offhand remark, which the liberals will run with, and blow all of proportion, and speculate that Trump wants to be a dictator, a president for life.

Anyone who really wants to be president for life would be foolish to wait until the age of 70 before running for the first time. :-P

Am I going to be first on this thread to say it’s a joke?

I can see the big media cultural Marxists all teary eyed that this President could SAY such a thing!

For eight years running the Constitution and the rule of law meant absolutely nothing to them, but all of a sudden...

Trump is the perfect President for America. He has reached a position where he acts as an embodiment for our nation, the hopes, dream, fears and aspirations of ordinary Americans are represented in one man.

Term limits for the President were a con forced through by the Dummycrats who wanted to protect FDR being the longest serving President for ever.

If Trump wants to run in 2024we should give serious consideration to it. We will never find a more perfect and wonderful President for this age

And speaking of the constitution term limit for president, I recall chatter in the past, of how someone could get around the 22nd amendment so Bill Clinton could be president again.

I don’t recall exactly who was saying that, but point being, liberals would be all in on president for life, if it were Obama or some other liberal president.

Anybody who fails to see these remarks were made in humor truly needs psychiatric help.

This also reminds me a bit, of how New York City had term limits for mayor. Mayor Bloomberg somehow got a waiver and was allowed to run and be elected to a 3rd term as mayor. I don’t recall the details, but, I think somehow he got the city council to override the term limits for him. And he was elected to his 3rd term.

Supposedly they had term limits in place, but Mayor Bloomberg and his henchmen found a way around that.
