The 2020 presidential election is 361 days away as of Thursday, November 7, and Americans across the country are hoping for Donald Trump to be a one term President.

Trump is already looking to extend the most profitable business venture of his life after he can no longer command the Secret Service, White House advisers and aides, the Washington press corps, the US military and foreign governments to spend time and at his properties.
