- Yes, he will be President up to the time Biden takes his oath
- No, he will resign
- No, he will be removed by the 25th Ammendment
- No, he will be removed due to impeachment
- No, Other
Today is January 8th and with less than 2 weeks to go we still don’t know exactly how this Presidency will end.
When Trump was first elected I made a bet with a friend at work on this very question. I said that there was no way Trump would make it to the end of his first term due to resignation, impeachment, or the 25th amendment. If Trump makes it all the way through I owe him lunch, otherwise he owes me lunch. We both agreed that if Trump had died in office that the bet was a push so no winner.
Up to Wednesday morning I thought I had lost and was ready to pay up when we could finally get together again. But in typical Trump fashion, this bet remains a nail biter to the end. What say you?
Personally I think he’ll make it to the end but if he gets wind that he’s going to be forcibly removed he may resign to spare himself that humiliation. If he’s too stubborn to do that, I think impeachment will be the nail in the coffin…
