Will the incumbent Donald Trump be the nominee for the Republican party in 2020?

I concluded four possible scenarios where a sitting American president would not be the nominee for his or her party:




Scenario 1: After being impeach by the House, the sitting president is convicted and removed from office by the Senate.

Scenario 2: The sitting president voluntarily resigns from office.

Scenario 3: The sitting president chooses not to seek the nomination.

Scenario 4: The sitting president is defeated in his or her party's primary.




I suppose there are A2K historians who can outline which of these scenarios or other scenarios that have actually occurred in our history.

@Jewels Vern,
If you look at the thread title you'll see it's got a question mark at the end not a full stop.

That means he's not making a statement, (or a point,) he's asking a question.

This is pretty basic stuff. Did you go to school?

@Real Music,
At first glance, Scenarios 2 and 3 are the only ones which have actually occurred — Nixon in Scenario 2 and Calvin Coolidge and Lyndon Johnson illustrating Scenario 3.

Scenario 4 leaves out a lot of USAmerican history before we had primaries. But someone with better historical knowledge may be able to come up with an example from the 19th Century where a sitting president was abandoned by his party.

You're not the only one who's wondered about this. It has indeed happened.
