I know he'll be 78, and he's already in terrible health, but I'm not sure that would stop him. If he does run again, how does he fair in the primary (I'd imagine he sweeps the field)?

If the 2020 winner is a corporate/establishment/neoliberal Democrat, then I could see Trump trying again in 2024.

If the 2020 winner is a populist/progressive Democrat, then I think Trump would likely retreat from presidential contention.

He's pretty egotistical, but I don't think he's that egotistical.

Yes.  Though being held in exile on St. Helena he will run again.

His campaign style works well against the former type but not the latter type.

But why would political calculations like that stop a cognitively declining megalomaniac from doing whatever he wants?

He might attempt it, but it seems unlikely. Also, the GOP establishment would probably do everything in their power to stop a Trump run in 2024.

He won't run again, but he'll certainly make his opinions known about whoever is running.

Perhaps he would express interest in running but he almost certainly wouldn’t actually go through with it.

Don the Con will have to escape to Moscow to avoid being indicted for tax fraud, campaign finance fraud and obstruction. He will be lionized as a hero in Russia and will have statues bearing his name at the FSB headquarters.

I would not put it past him to try, or very publically consider constantly in the news.

If he had lost in 2016, I'm pretty sure his 2020 campaign would have automatically begun, and I think it would have been likely that he'd slander the results as rigged and attempt to create a "shadow government" where he still picked a cabinet, released executive orders, and talked about the laws he would sign and basically play-acted as President. With the media still giving weekly if not daily news coverage.

Donald Trump will either be dead or a total recluse by 2024.

It's either sarcasm or delusion.

Whether or not he was reelected. Alright. I give this a 50/50 chance of still being "compis mentis" by 2025  and give him about a 25% of living to 2030.

I wouldn't rule that out, but he'll probably be totally senile by 2024.

Just imagine he runs again and faces off a against Joe Biden, who seeks reelection. A 82-year incumbent prez against a 78-year old former prez. That'll be damn hard.

And you are basing this on....? What? All those examples we have of populist Democrats Trump has run against and lost to?
