It would be something done TO him and not something done BY him, which means he can blame someone else for it - he's OK with that scenario.
Maybe somebody will put it in terms Trump can accept; they should tell him that resignation is the political equivalent of declaring bankruptcy - things aren't going as well as you hoped so you cut your losses and move on.
