Billionaire venture capitalist and entrepreneur Peter Thiel predicts that Donald Trump will get a second term in 2020. I think that if he runs again, he will get re-elected, Thiel said at an event hosted by the Economic Club of New York on Thursday.
Thiel also expects that its probably the case that the Democrats will do quite well in the midterm elections this fall. The question about 2020 is a much trickier one, Thiel said. Its really one of is there anything that was learned from Hillary Clintons defeat? He added that he thinks theres a vague parallel to the way the Democrats have treated Trump to the way Republicans treated President Barack Obama.
Thiel added that the fundamental mistake Mitt Romney made in 2012 is thinking that he could just show up and win.
Theres a reason Obama got elected. There were some very real problems in this country. You had to talk about those problems, he said. It was a failure by the Republicans not to do that in 2012. And I think the Democrats are setting themselves up for an even bigger version of that failure.
Trump hate factory
He noted that a hate factory of hating Trump all the time is going to prevent Democrats from seriously engaging with the issues. Thiel, a Republican, was the most prominent voice in Silicon Valley to publicly support Trump. At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Thiel said that Trump is a builder and that he would end the era of stupid wars. ...

That’s if he wants a second term. I have a very vague recollection of him saying he only wanted to do one that’s it, and considering all the heat he constantly gets from the Rat/RINO treason party I wouldn’t be surprised if he did drop out.
He started the re-election paperwork the day he was inaugurated.
If/when Trump wins again, it will be CW II, but not of our instigation. The Demo-left will come completely unhinged and will likely go “Ferguson” on the U.S. Get your power ready.
All the prognostications I hear about Trump are garbage. I know it’s only anecdotal but I have friends, colleagues and family members all over the country. I don’t know anyone who voted for the President who regrets it and I know dozens of people who didn’t vote for him who would tomorrow if they could.
He’s said numerous times he’ll be here for “7 more years” and the last or previous on was his tweet on Tillerson. If I were DJT, I can understand the BS he gets every day from the MSM but I can also see that he wants his legacy as the greatest president ever come about.
I believe the last time an incumbent president couldn’t get re-elected was Jimmy Carter (America held hostage, day 327...talk about bad press!).
If someone wants to beat Trump they will have to be pleasant to everyone they meet—no more “deplorables” speeches.
It is almost impossible to imagine the Democrats nominating someone like that.
I dont see anyone close to beating him right now. I hope they run the latest hateful losers like Maxine Water or the fake Indian just for laughs. Even Orcah or Oprah because Trump has some dirt on the old turd.
That must have been back when he made his initial Cabinet picks.
There's been a lot of water under the bridge since that time...
Well, today’s your lucky day!
Tell him what prize he has won.
Trump announced his re-election months ago.
Trump has forcefully and energetically said he’ll run again for that second term.
Heck, right now I just hope I'm around to witness the fun.
And let's face it. The biggest threat to a second Trump term is the current Republican Congress.
Campaign infrastructure here:
He filed the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to run in 2020 just hours after he was inaugurated.
President Trump Names Campaign Manager for Re-Election Bid
And so Forth....
Trump has already announced he’s running in 2020. In all of his speeches lately, he says he has 7 more years to go, which must drive the dems and their media lapdogs wild.
I'm not sure about that.
One year ago, Trump was Hitler. Now he's a rich cad who likes to **** attractive women. In 8 months he should be walking on water, and/or ready to be added to Mount Rushmore.
The 2018 Senate map looks horrible for the Democrats, too.
Have you been living under a rock for the last two years? Or is there another level of "unhinged" beyond the current one???
I think President George H W Bush (Read my lips, I won't raise your taxes) was defeated for a second term.
It remains to be seen whether or not Trump ends the ‘era of stupid wars’.
I'm not that optimistic...
