Poll: Where will Trump end up?

Poll: Where will Trump end up?

Give the most likely outcome, in your opinion.
I encourage posters to give reasons for their answer.
And list the approximate probabilities of the different outcomes.
If the answer is ‘Other’, explain.

Poll closes in 90 days.

Well, we don’t know who voted for which option. Although I can guess who voted “Back in the White House as President.” And who voted for “Other” and what do they mean by “Other”?  Become a star in another reality show? Get into movies? What?

For me, I lean toward Russia. I think there is enough to convict him on the tax issues alone. Although his lawyers may successfully raise doubt as to who was to blame, maybe to the point that no one is convicted. But if it looks like jail for him, except I don’t think Russia will let that happen. They don’t want to discourage a future President from becoming a ‘President for Life’. They will want to send a message, that if worse comes to worse, and an attempt to become President for Life fails, there will always be a safe place for them in Russia. And I imagine the Russians will treat Trump and his family very well. Benedict Arnold was well rewarded by the British for similar reasons. I would be surprised if Trump ended up in jail.

He won’t end up back in the White House. Not unless massive voter suppression is passed by various states.
Bankrupt but free? No. He needs massive money to keep out of jail.
Remain wealthy for the rest of his life? Possible.
But at least as likely, forced to escape to Russia.
Ending up in jail does not seem too likely to me.
