If Trump gets impeached, can the following things happen, or is it that once Trump gets impeached, none of his immediate family members can become President?

In 2024 elections:

Mike Pence for President (if he was to loose the 2020 elections), and Donald Trump Jr. as vice president. The only issue with this is that it might rise a commotion among Americans as it would look a bit weird, as if it was Trump and Pence all over again.

Eric Trump for President, and Lara Trump for vice president. <--- This one I am skeptical about. Even if they were to be registering in two different states, the issue here is that would this bring up a King and Queen issue? Because one of the reasons why America is a democracy was because the founding fathers did not want a King and Queen as rulers.

Ivanka Trump as President, and Tiffany Trump for vice president. <---Double women power. I would like this, I support women's rights, even though I am a straight man.

Trump being impeached would have no effect on his children's eligibility for the presidency.


I support women's rights, even though I am a lesbian trapped in a man's body.

Even the porn stars he's banged will still be able to run for president.

Is this a great country or what?

Every Democratic Governor will enact an executive order requiring any candidate to get on ballot release last 10 years of tax returns.

There are people who have issues with the taxes of Trump's children also?

Considering their money comes from daddy, do you think their money would be clean and clear? Think they'd be able to handle living on a politician's salary after suckling daddy's orange milk all their lives? Think that might create potential avenue for corruption?

Which I'm not even sure why you're pondering this, as I don't think that even Turmp fans think that highly of his kids (that they'd be willing to blindly follow them similarly). I'd guess Jr would be the only one they'd probably support, but chances are if daddy goes down he'll end up with some charges of his own. Smarter Every Day (a YouTube science channel done by some engineer from Alabama) did a video on some initiative by the daughter and Kushner, for giving women scholarships to get them into STEM programs, and the same conservatives that view her daddy as their living god-Hitler were raging hard against her for daring to support women in STEM.

The question doesn't matter.
If Trump were impeached, he'd push "the button" and take all of us out with him.
After all.... at that point Trump wouldn't just blame democrats, Trump would blame everybody.
And we would have to go. All of us.
Isn't that how a cult works?
If the leader goes they all must go... along.

You realize that at that point Trump will just release his 1040's and walk away smiling?

Not funny. This is something that should have us all worried. The Mueller report makes it quite obvious how impulsive that man is.

Because he doesn't have to and he doesn't want to.
Why just him? Why does he especially not want to? I'm sure none of the others - all of them for decades - weren't wild about it, but they did it anyway. What makes Trump so special here?

Perhaps you didn't understand what I said. Releasing one's tax returns is a voluntary action. A president can choose to share them or not. Trump chose not to. That's the end of it, he's under no compulsion to do so at this point.
It's become a political issue because a lot of people believe there is evidence of criminal activity in his returns, the returns he handed to the federal government. I'll say that again, the returns he handed to the federal government, in this case the IRS. That would be the same IRS that audited his tax returns looking for hidden income or invalid deductions.

I'm not on the tax return band wagon because it's almost a certainty that Trump didn't prepare them. I would bet more than a few bucks that it was a CPA that filled them in, and those folks generally try to stay out of prison.
