Donald Trump said something at a rally over the weekend in Macon, Georgia that should excite all of us. Trump told the crowd that running against Joe Biden is putting a lot of pressure on him because he considers Biden to be the “worst candidate in the history of presidential politics.” Trump said he wouldn’t feel so good if he lost to Biden and that he might have to leave the country in the event he loses. This could just be Trump being glib and encouraging his supporters to go out and vote, but it also could be the truth. Trump is so motivated by his narcissism and his ego that if he does lose to Biden, he may not be able to deal with the embarrassment.
It’s expected at this point that if Trump loses, he’ll pretend the election was rigged and that he actually won but was treated unfairly. Ultimately though, Trump won’t have the power to stay and he’ll have to leave the White House by January 20, 2021. It’s hard to imagine Trump then moving to a different country or completely vanishing from the public spotlight. But the thing that would drive Trump to leave the United States would be the fear of prosecution over potential crimes from, or prior to, his administration. Step one in seeing what Trump will do if he loses is defeating him at the ballot box by voting on or before Election Day.
