Donald Trump wants to be your president for life. As Xi Jinping is in China so he wants to be in the United States. He has joked time after time about serving a third term, something which he can plausibly deny as humor but which is very much him testing the waters to see what’s possible. The authoritarian impulses are obvious and with that in mind, his tweet today is deeply disturbing.
Trump took to Twitter to share a nightmarish video of a TIME magazine cover with Trump campaign signs dating all the way up to 2048, complete with a tiny Trump figure. The sign then changes as the year ticks forward until it finally reads “Trump 4EVA,” as a horrifying prospect as one can imagine.
This reality television star has already inflicted more than enough damage on our nation. The idea of him getting a second term, let alone an unprecedented third, fourth, and fifth should send a chill down the spine of every American who cares about the fate of this nation.

He is incredibly, singularly unsuited to be president, with an ego that urges him to never relinquish power. While it might sound alarmist, there is a very real possibility that if he wins in 2020 he will try to run again, Constitution be damned. We cannot take that risk.
This tweet must serve as a wakeup call, reader. You must vote against him in the election, yes, but you must also convince every person you know to do the same. You have a moral responsibility to mobilize against this abomination. Donate to Democratic candidates. Help your friends register to vote.
Our democracy, the greatest in the history of the world, is on the line. Let’s defend it. Let’s get rid of Donald J. Trump and get this country back on track. We can do it, but it won’t be easy. America, let’s take out the trash.
