5. That's the point I've been making all along...

Sure, Pence may agree to pardon Trump, but once the latter hands in his resignation letter and the former is sworn-in, he has every right to change his mind and Trump can't do a thing about it. And don't think Trump, who has made double-crossing and breaking verbal promises once he gets want he wants a cornerstone of his modus operandi, doesn't realize it full well. In fact, I'm pretty sure he would expect Pence to renege on any deal once Trump has no more leverage. Which is why I'm not only near-certain Trump won't resign, but pretty sure that, should Biden emerge from November's election with 270+ electoral votes, Trump will try to find some way to overturn the outcome (for example, have Republican-controlled state governments where Biden wins the popular vote disregard the results and appoint Trump electors anyway...which, in most states, is perfectly legal) or declare a state of emergency in a bid to hold onto power indefinitely.
