Trump says indictment won’t stop him from running for president in 2024

If the Democrats hoped that the relentless pressure on Donald Trump would bring him back, they were apparently wrong.

Trump was a guest on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Thursday and dropped some very interesting nuggets.

Among them: Not only does he believe he won’t be charged, but if he were, it wouldn’t stop him from running for president.

He further warned that an indictment would lead to “…problems in this country the likes of which we may have never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it.”

Would walk anyway

Trump told Hewitt he doesn’t think there will be an indictment — he says he didn’t do anything wrong.

And if he were indicted, he would still run for president. He stated, “…as you know, if something like that happened, I wouldn’t be banned from running. You know that.”

What the mainstream media will be up to came with Trump’s warning about what would happen if he were charged:

“There’s no reason why they can” [indict]unless they’re just sick and insane, which is always possible, because I’ve done absolutely… nothing wrong. If it happened, I think you’d be in trouble in this country like we may never have seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it.”

Hewitt knew exactly what the media would get out of it: “You know the old media will say you’re trying to incite violence with that statement. How do you respond to what will inevitably…’

Trump broke in to say, “That’s not inflammatory, I’m just saying my opinion. I don’t think the people of this country would accept it.”

Polls support Trump

While Democrats and the Left are throwing everything they can at the Trump impeachment wall to see if it will stick, polls tend to side with Trump. A recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist National poll found that 61% of Republicans said they should run for president by 2024.

The Mar-a-Lago raid did not appear to have helped the anti-Trump forces either. Of those polled, 63% of Republicans agree with Trump and do not believe he has done anything illegal or unethical.

The media is doing its best to convince Americans that the GOP is distancing itself from Donald Trump. But other non-scientific polls also show otherwise. At this year’s CPAC conference, Trump won the presidential election with 59% of the vote. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in second with 28%.

In July, at a Turning Point USA conference, Trump won by an even larger margin at 78.7% and DeSantis by just 19.0%.

If they can’t get Trump, allies can be best

Recently, a federal grand jury in Washington DC was appointed to investigate the creation and spending of Trump’s Save America PAC. Former senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller was also subpoenaed in connection with the investigation.

Corporate lawyer Boris Epshteyn and former campaign strategist Mike Roman are also targeted. Each had seized cell phones, reportedly as part of the DOJ’s investigation into the January 6 riots. At least 40 other subpoenas have been issued to Trump allies related to the investigation.

This week, MyPillow CEO and close Trump ally Mike Lindell was also given a search warrant and his cell phone seized. Lindell has long been an outspoken critic of the 2020 election.

There has been much speculation about whether Donald Trump will run for president in 2024, and whether he will make any announcement about a candidacy after the midterm elections. Joe Biden and the Democrats know they have to work fast. They don’t have much time.
