Why Trump Might Quit

The Trump-drops-out scenario hinges on the assumption that Trump is less concerned with wielding the levers of government than he is preserving his role as disrupter at large in American politics over the next decade. The latter might be much easier to maintain if he avoids being tattooed as loser in November—especially if the margin is larger than could be attributed, even by his most conspiracy-minded supporters, to media bias or vote-counting manipulation by Democrats.

The scenario hinges also on an assumption that Trump’s political project is more weakened internally—in the psychological sense—than it is even in the external sense, as measured by polls and campaign coverage.

Trump in recent days has scotched a planned rally and canceled plans for a massive partisan extravaganza at the Republican National Convention. He has gone from saying the coronavirus pandemic would be quickly routed in the spring to acknowledging, five months into the crisis, that the situation will probably “get worse before it gets better.” After saying masks weren’t for him, and implying that they are for weak spirits, he finally began wearing one and urging others to do so.

I can see him quitting ONLY if he's certain that the election can't be stolen for him AND he can wrangle a pardon from Pence and transport to a country without an extradition agreement.

I can see it. He will lose all of his power if loses the election and only half of it if he quits.

Quite the decision.

He won't quit. If he loses he'll say the election was rigged and bitch about it. He'll eventually leave, but he will scream and yell about how corrupt the Dems are, then he will disappear for a while and be resurrected as owner host of his own radio station. He'll hold rallies and get paid to make speeches and be a rallying point for every nutjob out here.

He’d have to quit before the election so Pence could pardon him, cause he won’t get one from Biden.

Aside, he looks quite ill in recent appearances. Maybe Mother Nature will act before the election but after the convention. Timing is critical.

The Lincoln Project guys a re whispering in his ear that he can't trust anyone. They're promoting the notion, probably based on facts and reality, that the people running his campaign will not tell him how bad it truly is, because they are robbing him blind. He's awash in cash. Of course he might also be participating since I read an article a couple days ago about him laundering money through his campaign.

He’s always been so adept at delegating - I don’t see why he doesn’t just let Pence experience the humiliation of losing the election for him.

Trump has two motives: Making money by ripping people off and cutting deals for licenses and contracts, kickbacks, grifting, etc. and avoiding prosecution. Right now I believe Trump, Jared and everyone he trusts to do it, are stealing the country blind. These people are so low down and corrupt they even fucked around with medical supplies and equipment. They're grabbing anything not nailed down. It's going to come out, and we will be appalled at the level of corruption. Seriously. I really don't think he gives a fuck about the election. I think in his diseased mind, he feels like WE let HIM down with this virus bullshit. He will never ever accept his own culpability. He looks at this country in ruins and he will blame everything for it but himself. No way he wants to be around for the clean up. He will "win" by losing.

And then, r13, starting at 12:01 pm Eastern Standard Time on January 20, he will devote every waking moment to bashing Biden and urging his flying monkeys to obstruct and fight him, esp. when it comes to the Draconian measures that will be needed to stem the COVID pandemic.

Repeat: He won't quit. He's too narcissistic to think he has zero chance of winning. And the amount of legal trouble that will emerge after he leaves office is massive, for both him and his children. He's going to make a play to win. And then he'll make a play to stay even if he doesn't win. To Trump, anything is possible when you can control today's media cycle. And if you lose control of it today, there's always something new to try tomorrow.

by Anonymousreply 1607/31/2020

He does seem to have some ability to acknowledge defeat, though. Look at his turnarounds on the masks, on his Covid predictions, etc. He might just walk away from the election (or a loss) quietly, blaming others for making it "not worth his time" to fight, or some other sour grapes excuse.

by Anonymousreply 1707/31/2020

He turned around on the masks because his numbers were falling. It's a cost-benefit balance for him. If he thinks there's more to be gained (for his own bank accounts) from quitting, he'll quit.

by Anonymousreply 1807/31/2020

If you follow Hoarse Whisperer on Twitter he has a solid theory that Trump will indeed quite because the absolute worst thing that a narcissist can face is being a loser, and losing so publicly in such a major way is a catastrophic thought that will send him into a complete panic. Narcissism rules everything for the narcissist. It is even greater than the fear of possible prosecution once he leaves office.

Today the Trump campaign announced they are suspending all television ads as they restructure their messaging. Since the new campaign manager just took over, this may mean that he wants to put his stamp on the ads. But it could also mean that Trump wants to freeze spending so he can pilfer as much money as possible from his campaign.

by Anonymousreply 1907/31/2020

There is no post presidential life for him, he'll spend the rest of his life in jail or trying to stay out of jail and that goes for his family and his support system . He'll spend the rest of his presidency trying to make the best deal for him. Watch for him to throw Jared under the bus

I can't imagine him quitting if he hasn't so far. I wonder if he is worried about New York State announcing they have indictments against him the second he loses the election.

I'd love a Washington D.C. version of the Woody Allen segment of "New York Stories" with Trump as the character Woody played and his late mother appearing in the sky to ridicule him to the world. Then the heads of Leona Helmsley, Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush appear to continue to ridicule him as he screams, but can't be drowned out because of the booming voices of these women. Leona can say that he never took her Christmas Eve warning to change his ways, so now all he has to look forward to is eternity in hell covered in chains and never able to get an appointment with Satan whom Trump thought was his friend. The stink in that city from Trump shitting himself all over will be felt all the way to Baltimore and beyond.

Here's the thing about Pardons...and Barr would know this. Yes, absolutely, the SDNY will be coming after him. But if Trump is pardoned, and he also pardons his kids, his cronies contractors, etc. if the charges and the evidence being brought against him by SDNY overlaps with the Federal stuff...and it very well may, won't the SDNY be prevented from using that information to prosecute him once he's pardoned? Anyone here know anything about the law in a criminal case?

I don't think he'll quit. If he loses he'll portray himself as a martyr and go on and on about how he kept fighting until the bitter end. And his other followers will see it as the crucifixion of Jesus all over again.

As Nancy Pelosi has pointed out, whether or not Donald Trump accepts the outcome of the election is completely irrelevant. It's up to Congress to certify the election, and please note that it won't be our current Congress but the one that will be sworn in before the inauguration.

As far as avoiding prosecution, Trump doesn't need to declare himself dictator for life in order to do this. He can either make a deal to go quietly in exchange for immunity as Nixon did, or quietly get in his plane and take a hop somewhere like France where there's no extradition treaty with the U.S.

R44 here. I kept referring to the SDNY when I actually meant the NY attorney General, the state of NY no t the federal government. The SDNY is the Department of Justice. They rae the federal prosecutors who work with the FBI and others to bring federal charges against individuals. If Trump pardons himself or others the SDNY can't go after him. The State of NY can. Unless his lawyers negotiate a deal. But whether he is pardoned or not on federal charges, if there is wrong doing he would face asset forfeiture if found guilty or he admits a crime by accepting a pardon.

Trump is not going to flee to another country - he's a xenophobe. And I doubt he comprehends what kind of legal jeopardy he's facing - his dementia brain can't absorb any kind of complex thoughts. After he loses in a humiliating landslide, he'll scream voter fraud, retire to Florida after he and Melania amicably divorce, and he'll tweet mean tweets about Biden until his kids have him declared mentally unfit. He'll never stand trial.

He won’t quit. He literally isn’t capable of accepting failure as reality. If he’s seeing bad polling numbers now then in his mind it just means the polls are wrong. And if he loses he’ll just spend his days bitching about a rigged system and stolen election. He was already planning to do that last time. Being branded a “loser” isn’t a concern because In his mind he won’t really have lost—he’ll have had his victory stolen from him. And then he will use his “dem/media” conspiracy theory to get attention for himself the same way he did with birtherism. That’s why he also will remain a useful puppet for Putin—he can continue to sow discord in the US for years. I guarantee if there’s a whiff of prosecution in the air that he’ll announce the restart of the Trump Moscow project and go there to “personally supervise” it. Trump is a xenophobe but he thinks a super white authoritarian country like Russia is the ideal nation. He won’t hesitate to move there. And besides being a disruptor, he can also continue to launder money for the Russian through his real estate projects. No way does Putin want him in jail anymore than Trump himself does.

Trum0 is never going to quit. One of the main elements in the process of getting him to quit, is missing. In Nixon's case, People told him to quit. He had Advisers and members of Congress who spoke to him. Told him he could not win and he should quit. Trump has no one who will tell him. The bottom feeders and grifters around him are milking every single drop of blood from this horse and when he falls dead on the tracks, they will walk away and find their next host.

1) Trump is not going to quit for a simple reason, the moment he steps down he's free from presidential protections. Even if he resigns and Pence pardons him for any federal investigations/crimes, that doesn't protect him from state charges. Also, I suspect Russia and China would start coming after him for all the money he owes them.

2) Regardless of who wins in November, I feel like there's going to massive demonstrations and violence by the losing side.

Basically, America is fucked. For the sake of the future of democracy, I hope Biden wins but basically the country needs to burn the system down and start over. The American Dream is dead, capitalism is dead, and America is dead if it don't get its shit together quickly.

When he loses the election, I can see him being real pissed off, and then just quitting. Walking out. Telling everyone "let Mike handle the transition. I don't agree with the results. I think this election was rigged for Biden, and I hope there's a full investigation . Mike is a good guy. Let him handle the transition. " Thus Mike becomes POTUS pardons the Trumps, and Asshole doesn't even attend the inauguration. I tell you one thing, as an aside. Joe is older, and yes he has stamina and stays fit, but in a way COVID19 is a gift. No back to back campaign stops, no rallies, now heavy travel schedule. It's a gift for an older guy. Trump complains about missing his ego fix and hates that he can't do rallies, but he's stupid. He should be glad.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
