President TrumpDonald TrumpSenate rejects attempt to block Biden's Saudi arms sale Crenshaw slams House Freedom Caucus members as 'grifters,' 'performance artists' Senate confirms Biden's nominee to lead Customs and Border Protection MORE joked at a campaign rally on Monday that he could serve as many as five terms in the White House.
"Now we're going to have a second time," Trump said in Montoursville, Pa., recounting the details of his surprise election victory in 2016.
"And then we'll drive them crazy. Ready? And maybe if we really like it a lot and if things keep going like they're going, we'll go and we'll do what we have to do. We'll do a three and a four and a five."
"We're going to have another one, and it's going to be great," the president clarified as the crowd cheered him on.

It's not the first time Trump has joked that his popularity is so strong he may have to exceed his constitutional term limits. Earlier this month, he retweeted a post from Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. that said Trump’s first term should be extended by two years as payback "for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup."
