    No idea but he's getting bounced in 2020 if he makes it that long.
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    Trump couldnt pass wall funding when R controlled both chambers of congress. Trump thought, now with a new D controlled house and Pelosi who held view that wall funding was an immorality he could just hijack the process rather than trying to pass a bill thru regular order would just make people suffer till he got his way. Guy is just a monster.

    Aside from his penchant to disrespect every long term ally while at same time heaping praise on the worlds strongman evil dictators.... And wanting to withdraw US from Nato and world climate accord and anything else that is the bedrock of holding peace and prosperity in favor of throwing his support to freakin Saudi prince who orders a hit on a US resident reporter, or Putin who has ordered poisoning of residents in UK, ( "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia."), or Trumps very friendly conversations with Rodrigo Duterte, Philippines, who kills reporters. Though, to be fair, Duterte held some criticism, "Duterte's praised Trump, he's also said: "He is a bigot and I am not." Trumps name is on a 57 story, 150 million dollar building in Manilla, Phillipines so lets play nice.

    Literally Trump embodies the worst traits one could cartoonishly muster of the ugly american, and though he is an embarrassment, somehow we have not been escalated into a nuclear war yet so I have to say it could be worse.

    He won't run. I doubt he ever intended to run again.

    Trump gained one thing no one is talking about it. The State of the Union speech is now center stage.

    You're telling me he's going to willing give up this:


    and this:



    and all the benefits the presidency brings to the dealings of the Trump Organization around the world?

    I'll believe that when I see it. He's got a sweet deal to fill his pockets for years to come in ways he never could as a legitimate businessman, and he's not going to give up either the adulation or the free money easily.

    You can make a fortune as a post-President too. Remember when the Clintons were dead broke when they left the White House? Now worth 80+M. Not bad for just 18 years. Based on his real estate purchases, it looks like the Obama’s are doing ok financially as well (net worth $40M).
    He will make a ton of money, but it will be after his Presidency. Probably start that news network he was going to if he had lost in 2016. The Presidency is ego fuel for him but it’s not a cash bonanza.

    It was never true that the Clintons were dead broke when they left the White House. That canard is up there with taking sniper fire at an airfield.

    However, the bulk of the estimated 250-300 $Million net worth was acquired since leaving office. https://www.forbes.com/sites/danalex.../#8c1fdbd7a16e

    being president = $

    the longer you are president the more you're in the game and the more you know whats up or going on in the world which = more $

    Likely true, but the longer you are president the less time you have to be an ex-president, which is when you make that $. And when you start out as the oldest to assume the presidency, that means those 4 years are a relatively large portion of your remaining life.

    What I suspect he's most loathe to give up is presidential pardon power and presidential immunity.
