The president has previously joked about running for president indefinitely. Earlier this year, he tweeted an edited video depicting him campaigning for office forever on a satirical Time magazine cover. It was based on an actual magazine cover from last year that showed Trump campaign year signs every four years from 2024 to 2044.
Huckabee’s tweet came as the House Judiciary Committee held a marathon debate on two articles of impeachment Wednesday ahead of final votes expected on them later in the day. The full House is expected to vote on the articles next week.
