Trump appears to claim he should receive two extra years as president amid increasing fears he won't accept result of 2020 election

Donald Trump  has appeared to claim he should receive an additional two years as president in “reparations” for the  Mueller investigation .





The US president shared on Sunday a tweet by   Jerry Falwell Jr , president of evangelical Christian university Liberty University and a prominent supporter of Mr Trump.

“After the best week ever for @realDonaldTrump - no obstruction, no collusion, NYT admits @BarackObama did spy on his campaign, & the economy is soaring,” Mr Falwell falsely claimed.

In fact there is no evidence to suggest former president   Barack Obama   had any role in probing the Trump campaign, and special counsel Robert Mueller has provided multiple instances in which Mr Trump attempted to impede his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“I now support reparations,” Mr Fallwell added in the tweet the president shared on his account. “Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup.”


Though Mr Trump did not explicitly endorse the message he shared, he regularly and almost exclusively retweets messages he agrees with.

He followed up the retweet with posts of his own bemoaning two years “stollen” (sic) by the special counsel’s probe, which was launched in May 2017 and concluded with Mr Mueller’s 448-page report, which was published last month.

“Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back,” he tweeted.

“The Witch Hunt is over but we will never forget. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”


The allusion to an extended presidency came just hours after Nancy Pelosi suggested   Mr Trump might not voluntarily leave the White House   if Democrats fail to win “big” in 2020.

The Democratic house speaker said Mr Trump may contest the result and refuse to give up power if her party’s candidate won only by a narrow margin.

“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that,” she told   The New York Times .

Michael Cohen, Mr Trump’s former lawyer and personal fixer, raised the prospect of Mr Trump ignoring the results of the election during congressional testimony in February.

“Given my experience working for Mr Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” Cohen, who will be jailed today for his role in Trump campaign finance violations, said during his closing remarks.

So Trump made a joke about it that some people didn't get.

And Pelosi has totally lost her mind finally, not that anyone can blame her, what with all the wacky weirdo's that have taken over the once highly respected Democrat party

President Trump pulls the chain on the left daily and they fall for it every time.

Wrong, Trump pulls the chain on all his base, the majority of which will believe anything and everything he says, right or not, and they fall for it every time. Unlike ignorance, there is no cure for stupid. And he knows just which chains to pull to get the reaction he wants from them.

President Trump has trashed so many democratic standards that we've lost count. He has already blatantly disobeyed the Constitution he swore to defend, by ignoring the emoluments clause.

It isn't hard to imagine him refusing the results of an election. His supporters would applaud, laughing.

If this was not so pathetic, it might have been found amusing.

So what?

It isn't like we have laws, and a system to preside over them, in place to take care of this.

Let us all know when he is in year 5 or 6 of his presidency if he doesn't win reelection. 

If it wasn't for Trump I am beginning to wonder if some would have anything to live for.

Trump has violated the emoluments clause since his first day in office. He has proved that violating the Constitution is not a problem for him.

Why should anyone suppose he would hesitate to ignore election results?

Again, we have laws, and a system for governing them. 

Let me know when Trump is in year 5 or 6 of the presidency if he loses reelection.

Ever think the Trump does this to make the left lose it? Nah, that can't be it.

Many here seem to have no other interest in life except bashing Trump.

And there are a good many here who seem to have no interest in life except bashing Obama, Clinton, and trying to Canonize Trump as the new Messiah.

'failed coup'  They all sound the same. Push a lie enough people may start to believe it.

It was an attempted coup from the get go, even before he was nominated.

It's been a failure ever since, with no hope of a victory for the Democrats.

We'll have to wait to see what Barr and the Republicans come up with as regards illegal activities by the former administration.

What exactly goes on in a person's mind to cause them to interpret a non-comment as some sort of indication that the non-commentor intends to usurp our republic? 

Is this something medication can cure?  Do we have a drug for that level of irrational hysteria?

Two more years because ( he ) is president?

Yeah.  Two more years tacked on to whatever the traitor ultimately gets.  Ft. Leavenworth Military Prison has the room.

If the right wants a civil war they'll have to have Russian help to get it.
