Fears of 'Trump Forever' Worry Undecided Voters

Fears of ‘Trump Forever’ Worry Undecided Voters

May 21, 2024 at 10:02 am EDT By Taegan Goddard 93 Comments



“As the rematch between Joe Biden and Donald Trump draws nearer, political professionals are detecting an unusual concern among some undecided voters: that if Trump returns to the White House, he’ll refuse to step down when his term is up,” Bloomberg reports.

“As far-fetched as it may sound, the prospect of Trump overriding or simply ignoring the constitutional provision that limits a president to serving two terms seems to be pushing some undecided voters toward Biden, despite significant reservations about the incumbent’s age, turmoil in the Middle East and high inflation. Now strategists in both parties are probing to see how widely this sentiment has spread, particularly among the undecided voters likely to sway the election.”

After Dictator Donald suspends the Constitution to have his way with a dumbfounded nation, how does anyone think he'll give a shit about "terms"? He'll rule like a king until he dies or gets bored.
