Katy Tur: Does Anyone Really Believe That Trump Will Exit Peacefully?

Katy Tur, the NBC reporter who gained national prominence for covering Donald Trump during his campaign for office, fears that he will not leave the Presidency willingly according to the Hill.

“I’ve heard him insult a war hero, brag about grabbing women by the pussy, denigrate the judicial system, demonize immigrants, fight with the pope, doubt the democratic process, advocate torture and war crimes, tout the size of his junk in a presidential debate, trash the media, and endanger my life,” Tur continued.

Having seen Trump's authoritarian nature upfront, Tur thinks it's naive to think that Trump will ever leave office peacefully.

Tur, 33, adds she fears Trump will be in office 27 years from now at age 98 because he'll find a way to avoid the two-term limit. "Does anyone really believe he’ll respect term limits? I have a vision of myself at sixty, Trump at a hundred, in some midwestern convention hall. The children of his 2016 supporters are spitting on me,” Tur writes.

Too early to really think about it. But I heard the same thing about Obama, and have the same reaction. He'll stop being President at the end of his second term. If he won't leave the White House, he'll be treated like a fence-jumper. Or now, Omarosa. Maybe the stories about her getting booted are wrong. Anyhow, just being stubborn won't get your term extended.
