 Trump rules out seeking a third White House term if he wins reelection
by Brett Samuels - 09/17/23 10:12 AM ET



Former President Donald Trump in an interview airing Sunday said he would not seek a third term if he wins reelection, something that is barred by the Constitution.

“Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker asked Trump if there were “any scenario” where he would seek a third term in office, citing arguments from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and other rivals that Trump can only do so much for voters since he would be limited to one more term, while other candidates could win two terms.

“No,” Trump said. “Just so you understand, when DeSantis says that, he’s not your man. He’s not your man, I know it because he’s a very untalented guy.”

“When somebody says eight years, we need eight years, no. In six months to a year, many of the problems, almost all of the problems that you and I have just spoken about will be solved,” Trump added. “Anybody that says they need eight years, you don’t want that person.”

Trump is seeking to become the first person since former President Grover Cleveland to serve two non-consecutive terms in the White House. He’s currently the frontrunner for the GOP nomination in 2024, leading the vast majority of national and state level polls by double digits.

The Constitution would prevent Trump from seeking another term in the White House if he wins reelection.

The 22nd Amendment limits presidents to two four-year terms, a measure enacted after former President Franklin Roosevelt was elected to four terms.

He's already had four and is asking for four more. You're right. I don't want that person because that person is you.

Trump is calling DeSantis untalented!   :rolling:  If he is so untalented then why won't you debate him????
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

He sounds just like his sycophant posters here, blurting out the first thing that pops in their heads without taking a moment to think it through.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.     -Dwight Eisenhower-

"The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals ... it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government ... it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government."     -Ayn Rand-
