Dear Mr. Trump:
You want to run again for President in 2020. I write to warn you that this might not be a good idea.
You see, the number 2020 ends with a zero, and therefore falls under Tecumseh’s curse; that any president elected on a zero year shall die in office. Or so the legend says.
The curse’s track record is impressive. Harrison, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Harding, FDR, JFK. Reagan survived his assassination attempt, but his mind died. George W Bush also survived, but he wasn’t really elected in 2000.
So maybe it’s all a coincidence; or maybe the curse is weakening. But would you play odds like that?
