In multiple news articles such as ones here and here, they mention Donald Trump running for president in 2024 because it is projected Joe Biden will be president starting 2021.
I thought the 22nd amendment which said no person can run for president twice nonconsecutively (emphasis mine):
No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once
So I have two questions regarding this:
- Can Donald Trump run as president in 2024 and become president?
- If not (which seems the case because of the 22nd amendment), why do these news sources not mention that Donald Trump cannot legally do that without an amendment between now and 2024?
Edit: so I understand Grover Cleveland served 2 non-consecutive terms as the 22nd and 24th president of the United States, but my question pertains to modern day politics since the 22nd amendment didn't get ratified until 1951.
