US President Donald Trump joked about remaining in office past his second term during a campaign rally in Fayetteville, on Monday, to support Republican candidates Dan Bishop and Greg Murphy in a special election in North Carolina's 3rd Congressional District.

Speaking on the FIFA football World Cup planned in the US in 2026, Trump said "But we've got a problem, it's in 2026 ... well wait a minute under the normal rules, I'll be out in 2024, so we may have to go for an extra term, ok."

"Tomorrow you're going to see headlines 'Trump wants an extra term, I told you, I told you. He wants an extra term. He wants an extra term, ladies and gentlemen, we told you. We told you he's a dictator, we told you'. No, no, I'm only kidding. I'm only kidding," he added.

SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "I've just come from a meeting with North Carolina officials representing communities hit by Hurricane Dorian. And I expressed the unwavering solidarity of the American people, we are behind you one hundred percent, one hundred percent. The prayers of our entire nation are with the citizens of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and everyone else that was in the storm's path. And I will say, I was called by the government of the Bahamas and we're helping with the Bahamas, they were hit so hard. They were hit so hard, who would believe it. We pledged the full support of the Federal Government through every step of the rebuilding process. And I will say, North Carolina in our country probably got hit the hardest, that was a little bit of a surprise. But I know one thing about North Carolina, you can take it and you'll build it quickly, and you'll build it beautifully, and you'll be back sooner than anybody ever thought, and it'll be better than ever, right? No doubt about it."

SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "Now, in less than a year and a half the first term will be over, think of that. I announced today that we got the soccer world cup, that's a big thing, who else is going to do it? But we've got a problem, it's in 2026. [FIFA President] Gianni Infante [Infantino], who is a great guy and we announced it in front of the press. And 2026, and I said well wait a minute under the normal rules, I'll be out in 2024, so we may have to go for an extra term, ok. [Applause] Oh, they're going crazy, they're going crazy. Tomorrow you're going to see headlines 'Trump wants an extra term, I told you, I told you. He wants an extra term. He wants an extra term, ladies and gentlemen, we told you. We told you he's a dictator, we told you'. No, no, I'm only kidding. I'm only kidding."

SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "[NAFTA] So whatever you do, start talking to your people, we need a vote on the USMCA [United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement] That's United States, Mexico and Canada. And they've already voted, they want it and we want it and it's great for the farmers, it's great for everybody. We're also aggressively combatting a problem that you have in North Carolina, a problem that we have in almost all states, the Opioid epidemic. Last year we saw the first nation-wide decline in drug overdose deaths in nearly 31 years. And at the centre of the American drug crisis is the border crisis. Criminal cartels smuggle vast quantities of lethal narcotics across our southern border, including heroine, meth, cocaine and fentanyl. A hundred thousand people a year die from what comes across our southern border and we can't get the Democrats to help us in sealing it even tighter. We got to get them, we got to get them."
