NEW YORK — One of Donald Trump’s tweets Tuesday suggested the President-elect already has his eyes on a second term.

While Presidential terms are for four years, President-elect Trump’s tweet hints that the real estate mogul plans on running for re-election weeks before his first term officially starts.

President-elect Trump has spent the two weeks since being elected naming advisers and interviewing other policy leaders and lawmakers to fill major roles in his incoming administration.

On Monday, he released a video laying out what he plans to do in his first 100 days in office, including proposals related to immigration, trade deals and defense policy

President-elect Trump has been criticized for some controversial picks, such as Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general and former Breitbart executive Steve Bannon as chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon’s position would not require Senate confirmation while Sessions’ would.

But Mr. Trump has also been praised for some more mainstream selections, including Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for his chief of staff and going across the aisle to interview people for possible posts such as Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, which he did on Monday.
