Eight more years?
President Trump on Tuesday night tweeted a meme that showed a campaign sign emblazoned with a “Trump 2024” slogan on it.
“Keep America Great!” is also written on the sign, which is decorated in the Trump campaign’s usual white and red colors.
The tweet, which did not include a message or any text, is the third time in two days that Trump has hinted he may want to extend his presidential term beyond two terms.
Presidents are limited to two elected terms by the 22nd Amendment, which was ratified in the 1950s. They are allowed to serve, at the most, two years of another president’s term for a total of 10 years under the law.
Speaking to reporters on Monday alongside FIFA President Gianni Infantino, Trump joked he would have to extend his term until the World Cup is played in North America in 2026.
“Gianni, we’re going to have to extend my second term because 2026 — I’m going to have to extend it for a couple of years,” he said.
“I don’t think any of you would have a problem with that,” he said, referring to the White House press corps.
During a campaign rally in North Carolina on Monday, Trump said, “We may have to go for an extra term,” after mentioning the 2026 soccer contest.
He then addressed the media, adding “I’m only kidding.”
In his tweet Tuesday night, it was not clear if Trump was suggesting that he would run in 2026 if he did not secure re-election in 2020.
