If Trump wins, everyone will pay the price before he is done if he is ever done, because for sure, he will attempt to do away with 22nd Amendment to the Constitution so he can become President for Life. It is very difficult for me to imagine Trump gracefully leaving the White House after 4 or 8 years and fading away from the media spotlight. Let us hope and pray Trump is crushed in this election with Hillary winning by a landslide in the Electoral College and with the poplar vote.
