Whether or not he acknowledges this reality, outgoing President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden.
With the end of his term less than two months away, Trump will soon take on the role of a former President, along with many of the traditions that entails.
While Trump likely won't attend the inauguration of his successor, as is typical for outgoing Presidents, it's not beyond the bounds of imagination to predict Trump will get a library.
The tradition of a Presidential library, wherein a former President's papers and artifacts are displayed to characterize their time in office, dates all the way back to Herbert Hoover.
Some have already taken a crack at imagining a fitting tribute to the President's tumultuous four years, but historian Michael Beschloss asked his followers where they would put it.
Any suggestions for location of a Trump Presidential library?

People didn't hesitate to answer.
Some joked that the library should be built in Russia or North Korea, given Trump's fondness for their leaders.

That already have all his important personal papers in Moscow, so that would save time. https://t.co/REvlzZjfXp

I think he should build it in Ukraine. Possibly somewhere in Kyiv. https://t.co/M9yCWWjUm8

Others said it should be constructed at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company, alluding to the now-infamous gaffe when Trump's legal team held a press conference outside of the small business, mistakenly thinking it was the luxury hotel when booking.
Parking lot of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping! https://t.co/IgwD5KvE4D

I hear that the Four Seasons Landscaping location might have some available retail space. https://t.co/9cK5wp0R6w

Some just wanted the project to go straight to hell.
Hell. And that's being generous. https://t.co/cdza6byUqb
