Though he is yet to be re-elected for a second term in office, President Donald Trump of the United States has said he will seek a third term, a report by Yahoo News stated.
The news media said President Trump said on Monday, Agust 17, at a rally in Wisconsin, that he will seek a third term if he wins re-election in November.
According to Yahoo News, President Trump lied at the rally, saying he deserves eight additional years in office because his campaign was spied on in 2016.
Trump's claim that his campaign was spied on has reportedly been refuted by a report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
“We are going to win four more years,” Trump was quoted to have said. “And then after that, we’ll go for another four years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years.”
