Trump's chance of being elected president of the USA is somewhere between zero and none.

No one will assassinate Obama while he is destroying the USA. It is what the global elites, progressives, and Islamists want. Trump, on the other hand, will be a much different story.

People will want to assassinate Trump while he's destroying the USA? Probably.

By the way, if Trump is elected, he will destroy the USA but in spite of that I hope he doesn't get harmed. I also never wanted to see anything happen to Obama or any other President for that matter. Assassination of a President is absolutely horrific.

I didn't say impossible, I just said that it's not likely. We have a lot more security, the Secrete Service has learned quite a bit over the decades and has a lot of practices in place to keep the President safe, there is a lot of effort and care to ensure that any place the President may be has been thoroughly searched and any potential problem eliminated, etc. With all the beef up and monitoring in security, while a successful attempt does have a non-zero probability, I don't think it's very likely that someone could take out our President. It would require a rather extensive operation to do so.

What you say must be true, or there would have been attempts given the number of nutters who despise the president and actually believe all of the birther Islamic terrorist nonsense.

Just keep him out of open convertibles and away from grassy knolls.

I remember about 8 years ago many people predicted that Obama would be the target of many assassination attempts but what about if Trump is elected president?

1.) he'll never be president so we'll never know
2.) in a fantasy world he would be at least as much of a target as any president, maybe more due to his own words and statements
3.) I wouldn't condone violence on him or obama

Maybe some prefer a quick death, the lingering cancer of progressivism and PC is killing us anyway.

What do you believe he'll do to destroy the U.S.?
