Reader Opinion: A message to the MAGA crowd

If he won in 2016 and 2020, then he would not be eligible to run again, and all this talk about a 2024 candidacy is just hogwash.

Think about this:

Donald Trump was elected president in 2016. He ran for re-election in 2020. He claimed that he actually won in 2020, but that the election was rigged and stolen from him due to massive voter fraud, although he failed repeatedly to provide any proof of massive fraud.

Do you believe that he was the duly elected president in 2020? Chances are you do.

If so, then you should know that he will not announce his candidacy for president in the 2024 election, despite his hinting and talking that he could.

Why would he not run?

It's because the U. S. Constitution, which he claims to believe in, specifically says that a person may not be elected more than twice to the presidency. So, if he won in 2016 and 2020, then he would not be eligible to run again, and all this talk about a 2024 candidacy is just hogwash.

However, if he does announce that he's running for president in 2024, then, at the same time, by default, he would be admitting that his claim that he was duly elected in 2020 was nothing but a big lie.

Wouldn't you then feel foolish in knowing that you got duped in believing one of the greatest pathologically-lying con men in history?
