Trump Floats Idea Of Serving Third Term During NRA Speech

Gun Rights

He’s already tried overthrow the results of an election once, and as many have warned, he’ll try to do it again. Here’s Trump saying the quiet part out loud again during his speech this weekend:

The highlight of the National Rifle Association (NRA) annual meeting on Saturday was a speech by former president Donald Trump, which came late but was ripe with sound bites. One takeaway: he proposed the idea of a third term, which he directly spoke against during an interview with Time magazine back in April.

During his afternoon speech in Dallas, Trump — whose criminal hush-money trial in New York is expected to come to a close as soon as Tuesday — likened himself to 32nd President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who had a four term presidency.

“You know, FDR 16 years — almost 16 years — he was four terms. I don’t know, are we going to be considered three-term? Or two-term?” he teased the crowd of gun rights supporters.

“Three!” shouted some convention attendees, Politico reported.

Trump mentioned extending his stay in the White House while campaigning in 2020. However, his flip-flop has added fuel to the Biden campaign’s narrative that the former president is a threat to democracy and institutional norms.

It’s more than a “narrative” when he actually followed through on that threat and had his MAGA cult of insurrectionists storm the Capitol and tried to get his Vice President, members of Congress and his other allies to illegally put him back into office.
