Trump Jokes He’ll Stay In Office For 26 More Years Then Brags About Committing War Crimes




President Trump lashed out at Hillary Clinton, knocked the Academy Awards for choosing the film “Parasite” as Best Picture, raged against Fox News and his Democratic rivals during a nearly two-hour-long campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Thursday night.

Trump complained to the crowd about “fake news” and spoke out against Fox News, which he said “doesn’t treat us the way they used to,” repeatedly attacking Fox host Neil Cavuto.

He then joked that he will remain in office for 26 years — which would violate the U.S. Constitution’s two-term limit for presidents.



“It’s such fake news. It’s so disgusting. You know what? They’d do better if they told the truth,” Trump complained about the free press. “Do you agree? They’d do better. Oh, someday in 10, 14, 18, 22 years when I’m gone, when we leave office in 26 years or so, they’re going to miss us.”

At a Las Vegas campaign rally the following day, Trump bragged that he had ordered US Troops to steal oil from Syria, a move which experts say would amount to a war crime.

While discussing his decision to pull US troops out of Syria, Trump told the crowd: “We moved them all out of Syria, except we did keep the oil.”




“You noticed that right?” he asked the crowd. “We kept the oil. Sorry. They said, ‘He left soldiers in Syria.’ Yeah, I did to keep the oil if you don’t mind, which is what we should have done in Iraq too, by the way.”

“I would have done that and make a lot of money with all that oil,” he added.
