Take Me To School - Civics 101 - Presidential Terms
This isn't a hopium thread. Sorry folks. Genuine question regarding the legality of Trump being reelected in 2024. Let's say for the sake of argument America survives Biden for 4yrs. Yay. Trump runs again in 2024. Now I know a president can't hold the position for more than 2 consecutive terms but... There's a tiny little loophole that says a president can hold the office for a total of 10yrs. So 4 of his years are now gone which leaves a total of 6 maximum remaining. Assuming Trump wins in 2024, 4 more yrs would take us to 2028. Then his VP could run & assuming he/she won, the VP(now president) could theoretically step down after 2yrs & let Trump complete a 10yr term total (or even vice versa, step down at the beginning of their term letting Trump take top spot then reverse back after the 2yrs are finished).

Is this even possible? Forget the age aspect & other variables. The verbiage says a president can't be "elected" more than twice. This bypasses that but doesn't exceed the 10yr limit. So am I right? This is conceivably possible?

The scenario we should be worried about is Biden hangs on until 2023, then steps down...Harris becomes POTUS, and then she "wins" in 24 and 28, and is POTUS for 10 years

Thanks, I was just curious. I agree that the likelihood is slim to none BUT... We live in a world now where the impossible is a regular occurrence & the improbable is the most probable.

This country is dying because everyone was too naive and comfortable. Now everyone is scared of the boogeyman. Voting is over for true Americans

I agree. Complacency is slowly suffocating us. And unless a miracle happens which is doubtful at this point, I won't ever be voting again.
