During a rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the President told the crowd that he deserves eight additional years in office because his campaign was spied on in 2016 under Obama’s administration.
I don’t know about you but that sounds great to me!
Although it sounds great, Trump would have to go through a lot of obstacles considering the 22nd Amendment limits a President only to serve 8 years.

Donald Trump said this afternoon in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, "We are going to win four more years. And then after that we'll go for another four years, because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years."

The NorthWestern reported this about Trump’s visit to Oshkosh:
The crowd inside the event started chanting “four more years” during the president’s speech.
Trump responded, “then after that we’ll go another four years.”
The president also acknowledged former Gov. Scott Walker, saying “there’s nobody tougher” than Walker, who ran against Trump in 2015. Walker left the race for the Republican nomination, citing a need to prevent Trump from winning, but has since been a supporter of the president.
Trump finished his speech urging supports to vote. The president said the only way he’ll lose is “if the election is rigged.” But he also struck an urgent tone today. “We have to win the election,” Trump said. “We can’t play games.”
He left the stage after about an hour, telling the crowd, “You’ve been my true friends.”

Jsonline had this to say about Trump visiting Oshkosh:
OSHKOSH – Hours before Democrats convened their virtual convention in Milwaukee, President Donald Trump swooped into Oshkosh Monday to counter the nomination of Joe Biden in a state that could decide the presidency.
He arrived at an Oshkosh airfield Monday afternoon, after a stop in Minnesota, with an urgent pitch before a crowd of up to 1,000 or more.
He declared the stock market and the nation’s economy — hammered by the coronavirus pandemic — would rebound if he is reelected to heights met under his first term before the virus struck.
But he also braced the crowd for a potential loss — albeit by raising the false specter of widespread election fraud.
“The only way we’re going to lose this election is if the election is rigged,” Trump said, echoing a similar forecast he made during the 2016 race.
Trump has trailed Biden in Wisconsin and seen his disapproval grow among voters here in the wake of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
He narrowly won Wisconsin in 2016, which — along with Michigan and Pennsylvania — helped secure him the presidency.
“I won’t forget you — just like you didn’t forget me in 2016,” Trump said in front of an airplane hangar owned by Basler Air Service at Wittman Regional Airport.
“This has been an incredible experience getting to know you,” he said. “I’ve been here a lot … we’ve been good for each other.
“We have to win the election. We can’t play games.”
The last President to serve more than two terms is Franklin D. Roosevelt. The 22nd Amendment has not disallowed any President to serve more than two terms. What do you think? Do you think Trump should serve 8 more years?
