The entertainment continues. Four years ago he said he's going to make America great again. Now he's out of office and his campaign is now just beginning. :lol: :lol:
He still has huge support though. The next 4 years will be interesting across the West, as many countries will suffer horrendous recessions and the sitting governments will be punished at the polls. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Democrats only lasting 1 term
Yes, if Trump gets a short sentence he could be out of prison to run again. :D
He won't go to prison though. It will start more riots as all the Trump supporting patriots will seek revenge
It would be a terrible move and Biden would be ill-judged to let it happen, as he was adamant he wanted to unite America. Imprisoning Trump would be a terrible ill-advised move

Biden doesn't have the power to stop it if the state of Georgia or any other state decides to prosecute. There are as many people who want him banged up as people who don't and there's no shortage of evidence of wrongdoing. Dominion ain't short of a few bob, had their reputation ruined and although it's a civil matter that will do for starters. :D

IF he was prosecuted, found guilty and sent to prison then I would expect Biden would have no choice but to pardon him. He would hate doing it but be advised he has no choice IF he wants to put the past behind and unite America. The USA is rather unique in one way because private citizens have access to a vast array of guns and explosives. It wouldn't take many deranged Trump supporters to start murdering on a massive scale.

Which is my point completely. I think Derek is allowing his personal dislike of Trump to get in the way of reality

Presidential pardons are only effective for federal prosecutions, they don't protect you from state prosecutions. Biden doesn't have to be involved if a state decides to prosecute. You can't let somebody get away with murder just because he's well liked and Trump's support is beginning to dwindle as people realise they've been conned. Banging up the Capitol Hill rioters and allowing the organiser to walk scot-free isn't ideal either.

When somebody starts a US Presidential Election 2024 thread we'll have to have some kind of ceremony for this one :)

I dont know, just a question, doesn't the Florida state governer have to give permission for Trump to be extradited to New York or Georgia to face any charges brought in those states ? :roll:

Think I am right in saying that Trump has something on Ron DeSantis.

Also, there has been talk that if it looks very likely that one or more states will bring a prosecution that Trump will resettle in Russia or Israel where he has assets and those countries are unlikely to extradite him back.
