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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
