–Trump finishes out his term despite Mueller’s investigation findings (published by March 2019);
Trump will stay in office, despite Mueller’s thorough, and fact-filled investigation, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the President was involved in a number of illegal activities, including campaign finance violations, back deals with Russia, The Saudi Prince, and more. February is a volatile time politically. Trump will NOT be reelected. Multiple indictments will be issued within days of the end of his term.
–Joe Biden will win the Democratic nomination for President. He will ask Beto O’Rourke to be his Vice President on the ticket.
Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke will be ever so close in the bid for the Democratic nomination. Joe Biden will win the nomination. Trump supporters will slide over to Biden with his “knock-him-out” old fashioned style tough talk. O’Rourke, with his Kennedy look-a-like persona will take the country by storm. However, his lackluster policy ideas, and not signing the bill for Social Security, as well as non-support of the bill for Medicare for All, will hurt him.
Trump will go neck-and-neck with Romney for the Republican nomination. I feel Trump will win the nomination.
I predict Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States.
