Trump was a massive underdog in 2016, but he’ll likely enter the 2020 election as the pretty clear betting favorite. Some in his own party have reportedly toyed with the idea of trying to run for the Republican nomination against the incumbent president, but the most likely outcome here is Trump once again running in the next election atop the ticket.That alone gives him a massive edge over every other candidate in the field. We are so early in the process that betting on any of Trump’s potential opponents comes with massive risk. Someone like Biden or O’Rourke may eventually secure the Democratic nomination, but we have no idea what’s going to happen between now and the Democratic Convention in the summer of 2020.Just think back to 2016, when Trump was the underdog to other Republican candidates, notably Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz. Many at the time believed that Bush was the clear frontrunner, thanks in large part to his family’s lengthy history in the Oval Office. Bush had been seen as the “next in line” for quite some time, and he was popular enough within his own party.We know what happened, of course. Trump upended the entire field of contenders and breezed his way to the nomination and eventually eked out a win in the general election. Unless some sort of scandal causes his removal from office between now and then, Trump seems very likely to be on the ballot in the fall of 2020. ...If you want a safe bet, just take Trump at +150. It’s tough to get a read on the Democratic field with so many names in the race, but we will get some clarity as some decide to drop out within the next year or so.
In any case, the last two and half years have been fucking GLORIOUS for the economy, foreign policy, and freedom from PC oppression. Trump deserves massive credit for all that. Truly among the best US presidents ever, and all the liberal tears of rage and impotence have been sweet sweet nectar for everyone who dared to question the globalist agenda.
I don't get it. The trade war with China was bipartisan. It means that it makes no difference who president is.
which makes sense given his massive successes
foreign policy, and freedom from PC oppression

As for foriegn policy ? Only Trump Cucks believe that North Korea or Iran are any kind of success. Same can be said about his tarrifs.
How good things are (NOT THAT GOOD), is arguably in spite of Trump rather than becasue of him.
Yeah, Iran Deal was a stunning success for Obama.
And Budget deficits ultimately come from Trade Deficits
Very easy to disprove., TRade deficits were screaming higher when they were balancing the budget in the late 90s.
I'm willing to bet that Trump will not be reelected in 2020, or that he will possibly even resign before then.
And if things aren't good for you, go somewhere they are. Complaining about it ain't doing a damn thing. Trump is an asshole, get over it. Some people must have had some pretty pampered upbringings to get so hot and bothered by a loudmouth.
He's a sensitive soul...i guess we should have some compassion for the poor guy.

Massive success with the Economy?Care to provide some charts from 2009-2019 and illustrate where Trump improved upon Obamas economy, or no?

Trade deficits and budget deficits are two entirely different things.And we allow Marcus TO TEACH kids?
If Trump wins again I will definitely be celebrating and my net worth will probably easily afford the party.You know, many moons ago (pre-housing crash) someone did throw a Patrick Net blog party.
