The smartest thing Trump can do is announce he is not going to run for reelection.

And make it totally clear that he will be a one term president. Trump really does not like the job. The constant analysis of everything he says and does. The constant coverage by the press and the criticism. By announcing this as soon as possible, he could save the country from worry and concern about his "next term." It would also settle down the world knowing it will be over sooner than expected. Possibly save the republican party by giving someone else a chance. He could do what he wants to do after this term is over, and he would be respected for deciding he wants to be a "one term president" That decision would help everyone and would be welcomed by everyone. (including Trump's family)

1. He will never do that because he is trying to run out the clock

on the statute of limitations for his crimes. Plus his fragile ego would never allow him to admit he is anything less than the greatest president ever.

Nixon at least showed some rational thinking by resigning. Trump thinks he can lie, cheat and steal his way to another term.

5. Forget Rump...

the smartest thing the GOP could do is tell him that he will NOT be their party's nominee. He is not going to be o the ballot in Califotnia if he does not release his taxes- same for a couple of other states.

The GOP is not a government entity. They are a CLUB. They can kick him out and nominate someone else. It is entirely up to them.

The GOP can go down in flames with MF45 or they can be smart. My money( or should I say rubbles) is on flames.

Never forget that the GOP and GOP alone are to blame for this. They can stop it any time.

7. I agree. Then the legal prosecution could begin Jan 2021.

9. It's all but impossible to impanel a jury that won't hang on charges against trump.

Just get him out.

8. My fear is we will put all our effort into running against trump. Next summer, at encouragement

of House, Senate and local GOPers, he will back out and a "moderate" Republican (assuming there is such a thing) will take his place going into General Election, leaving us all but dead in the water.

14. Trump is always angry, humorless, mean and confrontational, but I don't think....

.....that he hates his job. I think he loves his job and the power it gives him to hurt other people. He used to have to seek out publicity to be in the public eye, now we all seek out his latest assault on decency, and he loves it.
