Trump’s Exit

Someone in my line of work should never ever predict the future. Foolhardy. Particularly to predict in a way that’s preserved. That’s on paper so to speak – as opposed to a casual remark.

Still… impossible for me to resist making these twelve bets.

  • President Donald Trump will lose his bid to be reelected for a second term.
  • President Donald Trump will take the matter to court. Over and over, and over again.
  • President Donald Trump will lose all his consequential electoral litigations.
  • President Donald Trump will never accept that he has lost the 2020 election.
  • President Donald Trump will do whatever he can to preserve himself in his post, no matter the collateral damage.
  • President Donald Trump will lead his followers to the brink of the precipice – at which point some but not all will jump.      
  • President Donald Trump will forever insist that the election was stolen.  
  • President Donald Trump will not get out of the White House in any traditional way.  
  • President Donald Trump might have to be pried from the White House.
  • President Donald Trump is more likely to quit the White House weeks before he is legally obliged (on January 20, 2021).
  • President Donald Trump will finish out his tenure as president not in Washington but in Palm Beach or, if he decides to quit the country, at his golf resort in Scotland.   
  • Donald Trump will have a hold on the American psyche so long as there is an American psyche.
