Here is a link to a Trumpocalypse Clock.  With it, you can track the time remaining in the term of our 45th President, Donald John Trump (and thus his administration), down to the very second he either voluntarily leaves or is forcibly removed from office.

:D Enjoy!

I'd look at it as the time that everyone finally stops talking about DT. But I know that's never going to happen.

Next will be all the talk about how he's going to run for the 2024 election, and all the campaigning against it. In other words, back to square one.

I’m not worried about him in 2024,Tom Cotton is a bigger concern.

Unlikely. I would expect that either he will be in prison or he will flee to a foreign country.

Donald Trump will likely - despite whatever political spin he puts on it - spend his remaining time in office to further his own private interests irrespective of the damage it will do to the US and his own party.

If there is anything to be learned about Trump from his (now thankfully moribund) presidency, then it is this:

Everything Trump does, he does so for a *personal* advantage, not for political reasons.

Stuff Trump doesn't care about:
- The almost 80 million Americans who voted for Joe Biden
- The almost 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump
- The Supreme Court
- The Republican Party
- The Democratic Party
- Evangelical Christians
- American jobs
- Israel
- China
- The Planet

Stuff Donald Trump cares about:
- Donald Trump

I think that's as likely as the coup that didn't happen and the maga riots that didn't happen.

I've yet to see anyone explain exactly what he would be put in jail for by citing US law.

He's going to be living high on the hog and getting tons of attention by simply tweeting about Biden and Harris for starters.

1. Trump can declare himself unable to perform his duties under the 25 amendment.

2. Pence becomes president.

3. President Pence pardons Trump on all federal charges.

4. A few weeks later, Trump declares himself fit, and resumes the presidency.

Before I hunt though those, since I'm sure you read each carefully, do they specifically cite what laws Trump has broken ie "U.S. Code §_______ "?
