How long will Trump be in office?

The amateurish way he's running things so far and the conflicts of interests on several fronts (family business and the Russian connection) gets me to thinking about how long Trump will be in office. If the Dems turn Congress in 2018 (unlikely given gerrymandering in the House and a ton of Dems seats up for grabs in the Senate) will they try to impeach him? Will some larger scandal pop up that costs him the office (investigative journalists are just getting things warmed up for the next 4 years). Will the economy boom and he winds up getting a 2nd term? Will he just get fed up of all of it and call it quits? I'm sure there are a lot of opinions here, so lets hear them.

My hope is for impeachment before 2020, but then I might as well ask for Bowie and Prince to come back from the dead. My second hope is for a fatal cardiac arrest or other natural cause.

No option for not making it to inauguration?

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

Does the president have to release his medical summary after he's in office? If so maybe we'll get an actual picture of his health as opposed to the bogus BS put out by Dr. Vinny Boombatz

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

One term. He's probably impeachable on day one because of his business ties but republicans won't do it. Even if dems turn congress in 2018 the impeachment process would drag out to 2020 election.
A lot of negative stuff will be brought up that he'll be able to survive in office, but not in another election.
Trump will choose not to run for a second term based on claim that the country is in such great shape that he is no longer needed.

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

Probably 4 years, if he gets to accomplish what he wants to do, he might not run in 2020. I would say if Hilary had won, she would probably have died in office. Didn't think him or Hilary would be a two term president based on their age.

He's not going to run again. He's barely into it this time. Wait until he finds out how much work this job is, even for a guy who's going to farm out most of his duties to Pence. He'll be 74 and really burned out if he makes it.

I voted <4, but with the support this clown is getting from his fanboys and ass licking two faced establishment republicans I could see him making the four years. He won't make it past 2020.

I'm going with two terms (8 years) and I'll raise with a Pence win in 2024.

8 years or die in office (or have health problems that force him out).

Frankly, Pence being president bothers me more than Trump. Trump is an assclown. Pence is a fucking religious psycho.

Just over two before he resigns, making Pence eligible for the 2020 and 2024 elections

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

The question isn't how long he'll serve but how he'll leave office -- impeachment, resignation, 25th Amendment coup, heart attack, assassination, military junta, or incinerated by a Chinese nuke in the opening moments of WWIII.

I'm going with assassination, and this time it really will be a CIA black-op.

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

I think things will settle down and he'll be in for four years.

I think Republicans will be destroyed in 2018 and 2020. Partly because of Trump. And partly because that back-and-forth is just how it works.

Trump's followers will be saying how great he was, and how he wasn't given a chance, and how great America would be if he was allowed to do whatever he wanted ... for the next twenty years. The dude is Frank Serpico in the eyes of his followers. Fightin' the corrupt media, corrupt intelligence community, corrupt politicians, corrupt world leaders ('cept Putin), corrupt Nate Silver, corrupt smug-elitist liberals, corrupt NAFTA, corrupt China.

I'm settling in to watch his conference. I've been excited all day after hearing how bad it was. It's like catching a season premier of my favorite show.

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

Who knows .. depends on what happens over the next 3 1/2-ish years and who the Democrats nominate. Unless he dies, he will be in office for 4 years

Re: How long will Trump be in office?

You missed the most likely option - 4 years and he does not run for re-election.
