The idea is more enticing after Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential debate, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham joked on Twitter.
“After tonight’s #DemocraticDebate.......that whole Trump 3rd term thing is looking better and better,” South Carolina’s senior senator wrote in a tweet Wednesday night.
Graham, who during the 2016 campaign called Trump a “jackass” and said he was “not fit to be President,” has become one of the president’s biggest defenders. He posted the tweet after the first night of NBC’s back-to-back Democratic presidential debates.
Graham’s tweet came minutes after Trump posted, for the second time, an edited video based on a TIME magazine cover that shows a Trump campaign yard sign that reads “Trump 2024” and other signs in the background, with the years increasing by four-year increments. The video ends with a yard sign that depicts Trump being president forever.
The 22nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution limits an elected president to two four-year terms in office.
