The exchange of authority in 2020 or 2024 or whenever
#1
So what happens if Trump loses in 2020 or after he serves two terms in 2024? Does he willingly leave the White House or will someone have to escort him? Or will he be supported by some mix of military and political power to hold onto the Presidency?

If he loses in 2020, he could try and claim election fraud and stir the pot. In 2024 (should it come to that), he'd willingly cede power to his annointed successor as long as the winner is a Republican. If the winner is a Democrat, he'll again stir the pot and might indeed refuse to leave office 'until the election is properly sorted out' (and gives power to the Republicans).

I could also see him burning it all down if he loses and trying to do for the Federal government what was done in states like Wisconsin where the governor was neutered.

I actually see him leaving voluntarily while simultaneously spattering so much corrosive shit that whoever's next is effectively paralyzed.

Consensus is and has been he's been fucking miserable as president. He wants to leave but for ego reasons can't be seen as wanting to leave. So Pumpkins will secretly be relieved to be done but is also petty, vain, and selfish enough to poison the victory of whoever follows.

A) He's too much of a coward to go full Benedict Arnold
B) The USA military is too big and diverse to ensure having all of it backing him up.
C) Republicans arent that stupid; they know they are a bunch of old white guys with falling voter numbers, so what keeps them in power and abusing the system is manipulating the playing field and its loopholes; they wont risk it all for a fascist coup that could cost them everything.
D) Trump's health/body wont keep him going till 2024. Either nature or the job will do him in.
E) This administration has proven to be waaaaaaaay too stupid to be abel to get away with a coup.

IMO Trump would probably delight in the loss of his Republican successor- as it would prove to him just how awesome he is, and how much his base loves him. But if he loses in 2020, yeah, shit is getting stirred. That said, his options may be limited to how much the Republican Senate is invested in keeping him in power. If they're risking the future of their own seats, he'll have no muscle. And if they lose the Senate, well...

Thanks, Kindly! Always lurking about, but this was a topic I knew our brain trust would relish.

Truthfully, as long as nothing bad happens to anyone but him....I wish he'd pull that shit. I wanna see him dragged kicking and screaming out of the White House. It'd be one of the iconic images of all time..

Assuming that Pumpkins 1) is able to run next year and 2) loses, I fully expect more problems from his base than from him. His contributions will be baseless accusations of corruption and election fraud (as he already did for his own fucking electoral victory) while he inwardly sighs in relief at leaving a job he's hated.

My suspicion is that Trump talks a big game but he won't do anything significantly more than Al Gore did to protest an election result (that's not a shot at Gore BTW). Ultimately he won't delay or postpone the peaceful transfer of power to his successor.

This will never happen.

And by this, I mean this whole ridiculous thread.

Trump will leave office because he is, and has always been, a coward.

This couldn't have gone in the Trumpocalypse thread?

Trumpocalypse thread seems to be about events that have already occurred. I created a new thread since this is more what if that what now?

Are we charged extra for opening a new thread?

I worry more abut Trump's followers than his own machinations.

Why would he not leave the office peacefully? This fictional scenario created and perpetuated by CNN and MSNBC is so fucking absurd.

Over two years removed from the 2016 election I think you guys should read the first few pages of the Trumpocalypse thread. You’d be surprised to know many of the nightmare scenarios proposed about a Trump presidency have not come to pass.

There were members on this board suggesting armed insurrection and JKJ had to tell them to calm down. One particular member lamented that he was going to have to tell his kids in the morning that they had no future in the USA.

Just relax about this whole thing. If Trump somehow loses 2020, which is totally unlikely if Nancy Pelosi can’t reign in the radicals, there isn’t going to be a civil war.

When he leaves office, his odds of going to jail, minus the backup of a supplicant Congress, go up enormously. You don't need the devious liberal media to understand that.

But yeah, I think his heart clogs completely before he enters a theoretical third term.

He's also a raging, senile buffoon with the most powerful job in the actual world. I don't need to watch CNN or MSNBC to understand that. But keep being you, catartik.

So that's where we're at now. The President saying things, to manipulate the people who buy into his cult of personality, into inciting violence. Fucking piece of shit coward asshole. He'll say all that shit until another fucking piece of white trash rams a car into a group of peaceful protesters and kills one and then he's all like "there were wrongs on both sides." Fuck him. I swear to god he'd be less pathetic if he just started suggesting that whenever his supporters encounter leftys and liberals to pick a fight, key their car, slash their tires. This is where the Jim Joneses come from..

The guy is fucking old. I actually don't think he'll run, but I also suspect that election-ing is the only thing he really enjoys doing, so who knows.

If he loses, he'll whine and gripe but he'll march out of the office. These absolutely stupid talking points just distract us from real problems we're facing, like Big Pharma/Big Medicine's unfettered bribery and our absolutely insane military budget.
