Former Governor Mike Huckabee took to Twitter to tease an upcoming appearance on Fox News that he would explain how a constitutional loophole would allow President Trump to serve a third term in office.
“I’ll be on @seanhannity 2nite @FoxNews at 9pm ET and will explain how @realDonaldTrump will be eligible for a 3rd term due to the illegal attempts by Comey, Dems, and media, et al attempting to oust him as @POTUS so that’s why I was named to head up the 2024 re-election,” he wrote.

Huckabee, who previously ran for the presidency, told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the comment was obviously a joke and that many leftists “took the bait.”
“I think it’s hilarious,” Huckabee said. “And I had a lot of fun watching people on the left just have their heads explode. Some of them were NeverTrumpers — they went crazy; you had the typical media types.”
“Honestly, the fact that Susan Rice took the bait, I gotta be honest — that was funny,” he added.

That you clearly don't know how the Constitution works, is not surprising.

Look up the 22nd Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Several other people who responded to the post celebrated the idea of Trump remaining in office past 2024.
Watch his explanation below:
The Western Journal reports:
The 22nd Amendment to the Constitution imposes term limits for presidents.
“No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once,” part of the amendment reads.
