    I think it is a loaded headline, as if he has plans to circumvent laws left and right. That said, I don't think he necessarily is even thinking about the law when he does things, he just wants to do it and does it, as he has his whole life.

    I wonder if Trump will maintain his zeal after the first 100 days

    From what I've read, it sounds like it's rather questionable as to whether or not the anti-nepotism law applies here.

    He will retire as soon as the paint dries on his portrait for the White House wall.

    EDIT: But I thought he would drop out of the race, before he was nominated, or before he was elected. I have been wrong 100% of the time when it comes to this guy.

    Fake news. It is not against the Law.

    Also; I don't remember the "Breaking the Law" media outrage for the Clinton.

    I agree. I believe this was much more about winning than desiring the actual 'job'.

    Of course I'm likely wrong and he'll thrive through two terms. I just haven't seen anything supporting such...yet.

    She doesn't break the law

    The law is modified to suit her needs so that she could be given the opportunity to break the glass ceiling

    He would be the type to suffer through 4 years and then not seek re election then he would get the itch and come in a rogue.

    He better be ready for the grind because, despite partisan complaints about time spent golfing or at the ranch, that job is stressful beyond belief and isn't exactly banker hours.

    Not to mention the constant scrutiny which will not end. It obviously bothers him and will tear him down if he doesn't learn to ignore/minimize and thicken his skin. I don't think he had any idea about the true scope of the job. We'll see if he can/will adapt.

    Yep. I think he is in for a world he has never dreamed existed, but that can be said of anyone that becomes President. But at his age and lack of ANY governmental work will probably lead to a lot of frustration.

    He is used to saying "Do X" and it getting done (or at least attempted). Now there is checks and balances that he might not be used to having to deal with. We will see. I wish him the best and hope he does a knock out job.

    And the complete inability to shut it off via threats of lawsuits or cutting them out. He is no longer a private citizen.
