Would there be anything stopping Trump from running at the next election as an independent?
Would that be a possibility? Because he would get in again

He would probably split the Republican vote. Anyway, electors never vote for independents unless somehow they would have more than the red and blue candidate combined. The greatest ever third party performance was in fact President Teddy Roosevelt, after his presidency, being butthurt against his own prior Republican party, forming his own party, and thus causing the GOP to lose due to splitting the votes. And I could see Trump doing that.

No, but it would be a dumb move.

Yes, there is no national Independent committee to support him. In his case he doesnt need anyone's help.He will win no matter which party he declares.

He doesn't have to. He's got the horns (power and authority) of the Republican Party. Some resist, but some Democrats resist other Democrats too.Source(s): bisexual Christian

There's the fact that it will cost a lot of money and he will lose bigly to the Democrat nominee. If Trump supporters and GOP loyalists are not voting for the same candidate, they have no hope to win.

The Independent Party would have nothing to do with him. He has already permanently scared the brand name of Republicans, I doubt that Independents want to be his next victim.

independents rarely get elected or any attention you have to be either republican or democrat to get support.

What difference does that make? Mature people vote for policy not party.

He could, but you give up party support when you do that. I'm not seeing a reason he would.

You mean other than the fact that he will be running as a Republican?
