Trump wordt één-term-president
November 6, 2020 - If Donald Trump fails to win re-election, he will become the eleventh president denied a second term, out of 44 Commanders-in-Chief.
Of the 44 who have held office, only ten presidents have failed to win re-election for a second term, when they have attempted to.
The last president to have failed to win re-election was George H W Bush, who lost to Bill Clinton in 1992.
With coronavirus pandemic killing more than a quarter of a million Americans and putting the economy into recession, Trump could lose to Joe Biden after a close race.
