In a move likely to heighten the anxiety of those already dubious about President Donald Trump’s respect for term limits, the President retweeted Jerry Falwell’s call to add two years to his term as “reparations” for the time spent on the Mueller investigation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) expressed her fear to the New York Times on Saturday that Trump wouldn’t accept a loss in the 2020 election unless the Democrats win by significant margins.

“We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that,” she said.
