If Mr Trump really believes that he won the last election, surely he must believe that he isn't eligible to run in the next one?

True, but wasn't his intention to follow in the footsteps of Xi Jinping and stay in power indefinitely (with the help of a reform or 2).
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I find it alarming that trump has literally doubled down on campaign promises.
He went from door to door deportations (Never happened)
to suggesting "Camps".

Anyone proposing internment camps should be disqualified from running for public office, I don't give a poo which party they're running for.
His other current obsession is nukes. Big ones. He's excited that he's "allowed" to talk about that now.

bless'ed nightmares for days.

Have to help me on that one, believe you are allowed to run for a max of 2 terms or is it the impeachment stopping him ?

He appeals to the lizard brains of his constituents.  They love getting all riled up.  He reminds me of some kind of revivalist preacher.

The Electoral College is an institution that often gives rise to such conflicted results.  Bush v Gore and Clinton v Trump are two instances where the candidate who won the popular vote by a substantial margin lost to the other candidate due to the number of electors -- these numbers are disproportionate to the populations of the states.  It's really ridiculous.

I can't speak to the madness of the G.O.P., an infection that seems to be spreading.

He actually won one, and tells anyone that will listen that he won a second. Thus he can't run for a third.

Gotcha, forgot about his delusional win  :)
