Will Donald Trump be president of the US in 2019?


Donald J. Trump is the President of the US as of May 2017. However his term thus far has been beset by a certain level of chaos on many fronts. As a followup to a standing but closed question on whether Trump will still be President in two years, here we extend the timeline to 2019 and the beginning of the next Presidential election.

In addition to the usual mortal risks that might prevent a president from serving the second year of his term, the likelihood of either resignation or impeachment seem distinctly higher in Trump's case than for some previous Presidents-Elect. Between a major FBI investigation, potential leaks of highly classified information, and other issues, there are major uncertainties as to his long-term viability.

This question will resolve true if Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States on Feb 1, 2019.
