President Donald Trump shared a 30-second long video of himself running for president until the end of time.
The video shows Trump campaign sign after sign, increasing by the years–all until the year 9000. The final sign reads, “TRUMP EEEEEE” before transitioning into “TRUMP 4EVA.”
The video pulled from an October 2018 Time Magazine cover, which aimed to illustrate how “Trumpism” will outlive the president himself.
The person who turned the cover into a video said it was all a joke.
“It’s clearly a joke, and to the people who were saying that he would never leave office, I don’t think you can interpret it any other way,” Twitter user CarpeDonktum told Newsweek. “That’s how ridiculous the statement is. Is he really going to be president until the year 10,000?”
This isn’t the first time the president has indicated he might try to stay longer than constitutional term limits allow. In May, he said at a rally that “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.”
Many pointed out that this pretty much puts him on track for a dictatorship.

You may want to check with your people since I’m not certain you fully understand how the presidency works. But, for all you learned folks; that would be a dictatorship. #TheMoreYouKnow— Ace Von Johnson (@acevonjohnson) June 22, 2019
The end of time probably isn’t even the year 9000, or even the year 2050 for that matter. Humans don’t have long left on Earth unless political leaders like Trump address the gnawing issue of climate change.
Some simply dismissed it as Trump trolling.

Little Miss Flint, whose Twitter bio has long said that she’s the future president, also made sure to remind Trump that the year 2044 is hers.
Dictator?— Mari Copeny (@LittleMissFlint) June 22, 2019
And sorry to tell ya...2044 is MINE.
Hopefully, Flint will finally have clean water by then.
