PALM BEACH, FL — This week, former President Donald Trump called on Congress to propose and ratify a 28th amendment to the constitution. The amendment would allow for him to serve as his own Vice President if re-elected President in 2024.

“The current constitutional amendments are very, very weak. Pathetic, really. No double-dipping as President and VP? I don’t need a Vice President. Mike Pence? Total disaster. I can be my own Vice President,” said the former President on his social media platform, Truth Social.

The Constitution’s requirements for adding amendments are rigid, requiring broad consensus across states and parties. In a series of “Truths” on Truth Social that journalists have labeled a “Truth-storm,” the former President attacked anyone who thinks a “Trump-Trump” ticket is a bad idea. “The lamestream media says I need a separate Vice President in case I, the President, die. Can someone tell them I’m insured and have no plans to die? Why the lie, MSM?”

At publishing time, former Vice President Mike Pence confessed to denying former President Trump three times. In a moment of reconciliation, Trump restored him three times, only to say the whole thing was a joke and the only person Trump trusted to certify the vote for the 2028 election would be himself.
