China is giving US diplomats anal swabs. He should impose a few billion in tariffs for that alone.

The only realistic way that can happen is that if Biden becomes sick to the point of not being able to fullfill his duties probably due to his age. That is rather unlikely. But yeah, too much cool aid. I mean, just listen to yourself.
It's Kool-Aid. It's a trademark brand. Biden will resign at some point at the direction of the party. He won't be given the 25th Amendment treatment.
Beren wrote:The most likely scenario is that Biden won't run for reelection and will rather endorse his VP, who'll supposedly be a well-established potential presidential candidate by then.
I think Biden may resign after a few years. That way Kamala becomes the first woman president without having to win an election.

B0ycey wrote:However polls are all we have and if people don't support Trump now, I don't see why they will support him in four years.
Biden/Harris will screw things up royally. They already put in place all the policies that led to the Trump presidency. They weren't popular then, and they aren't popular now.
B0ycey wrote:And I cannot see how Trump can ever think he has a chance regaining 11m votes whatever he does.
Biden did not get 81M votes. He didn't get 20M more votes than Obama. That did not happen. You can continue to pretend that Biden is the most popular president in US history, but everyone here in America knows that's not the case.
Beren wrote:I'm actually wondering if what Trump's appeal is really about, if where it really stems from.
Hatred of the political establishment in Washington. It's not about Trump himself, and never really has been.
B0ycey wrote:His appeal is that he addresses peoples concerns that never get addressed which you must know.
Specifically, illegal immigration and free trade with China.

Trump did in fact impose tariffs on China and he did in fact start building a border wall.
