This week President Xi Jinping of China had the law changed that allowed him to remain in office for life. This is a step back for China and democracy, but of course Donald Trump thinks this is a great idea. The only thing worse than Trump thinking this is, of course, is him being caught on tape talking about it.
CNN reportedly has a tape of Trump saying “He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great. And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll give that a shot some day.”
Listen for yourself below…
Hold up. This is literally the opposite of what America stands for, not to mention Trump has zero political pull these days and he’ll be lucky if he can survive his first term.
The fact that he even entertained the thought is scary. This shows just how messed up his view of reality is and how off the rails he’s actually gone. He has zero clue what our Constitution or our democracy stand for. While some may say he’s just joking, the fact is we know this man has zero concern for current political regulations. He’s already in the middle of the biggest political scandal in American history, and now he’s joking about this?!
The fact that Trump is ignorant enough to make these comments guarantees he won’t be able to hold his own in any future campaigns. No one in the “middle” demographic would take a risk on him after he continues making these insane comments. Trump better enjoy his time in the White House while it lasts, it definitely won’t last forever.
