Trump says he will "negotiate" the third term in the White House because he is "entitled" to do so.


President Donald Trump has said he will "negotiate" a third term in the White House because he is "entitled" to do so.

Trump shared his intention to run for president again in 2024 during a campaign event in Minten, Nevada, Saturday night.

"In 52 days we will win Nevada and we will win another four years in the White House," he told a crowd of hundreds of supporters, most of whom did not wear masks or were socially distant.

“And after that we will negotiate, right? Because, based on the way we've been treated, we'll likely have another four after that. & # 39;

Trump has repeatedly suggested serving more than two terms in office, alarming critics who believe he's not joking about violating constitutional boundaries.

President Donald Trump said he would "negotiate" a third term in the White House because he was "eligible" to do so during a campaign rally in Minden, Nevada on Saturday night

He made similar comments at a rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, last month, saying, “We're going to win four more years, and then we're going to go on for four more years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a repeat of four years. & # 39;

But in the past Trump has also claimed that he was just kidding about serving more than two terms.

In November 2018, the president had to confirm that he would not push for another four years after praising Chinese President Xi Jinping for abolishing the term limits.

"He's now president for life," Trump said at a fundraiser. “And look, he did it. I think it's great. Maybe one day we'll have to try. & # 39;

After this clip surfaced, Trump told Fox News' Chris Wallace that he would not seek a constitutional amendment to allow him a third term.

"I think the eight-year limit is a good thing, not a bad thing," he said to Wallace.

Since then, Trump has repeatedly traced those comments, claiming he deserved more time in office because he was "ill-treated" in his first term.

America's unofficial two-term limit was set under Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, but violated by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was elected four times in 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944.

Congress ratified the 22nd amendment that officially limited presidents to two terms in 1951.

Trump spent most of Saturday night's campaign event – which violated Nevada's coronavirus regulations – attacking his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

& # 39; [Biden] is the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics. He doesn't know he's alive, ”Trump told the crowd at Minden-Tahoe Airport as smoke from forest fires filled the air in a state.

The crowd was upset and repeatedly shouted "four more years" and "we love Trump". They waved signs that read "peaceful demonstrators" – this is how the president began calling his rallies.

Trump complained that Biden would get a cheap comparison with Winston Churchill, the legendary British Prime Minister who led the UK through World War II. Trump adores Churchill and often compares himself to the political icon.

& # 39; We have a debate in three weeks and here is the problem. Winston Churchill was a great debater, ”Trump said.

He said if Biden makes it into the debate and if he leaves the stage they'll say it's the biggest debate they've ever seen. Winston Churchill was nothing compared to Sleepy Joe. «

He repeated several of his previous insults to Biden. Next to "Sleepy Joe" he complained that Biden was still in his basement and cursed Biden's son Hunter.

"Joe was shot, let's face it," Trump said.

"Using it is just an excuse to get the super libraries in there," he said.

Trump repeatedly railed against Democratic rival Joe Biden at his rally, saying: “He is the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics. He doesn't know he's alive. & # 39;

He also attacked Biden's ability to keep the United States safe. Biden has served in government for over 40 years.

"Biden's plan is to appease domestic terrorists," Trump said. "He will never be able to protect your family, your loved ones, your community."

He also argued that a Biden presidency would ruin the economy. The president has made a strong economy a key to his re-election, and this is an area in which voters give him high marks.

"I think 1929 would look like good times," said Trump.

He also tied Biden to one of his main favorite hulls – windmills.

"Did you ever see a windmill when it was shot – like Joe?" Asked Trump. & # 39; It's just starting to rust. And nobody wants to turn them off because knocking them down is a lot of money. & # 39;

Trump railed against environmentalists who want to use wind energy and warned people that they can't watch TV at night because the wind isn't blowing.

He complained that windmills were killing bald eagles and said, “You want to see a bird cemetery? Go under a windmill at some point. & # 39;

In addition to his opponent from 2020, the president also attacked his former democratic rivals. He brought up Hillary Clinton's emails, which were a popular line for him during the 2016 campaign, and complained about President Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize.
