Trump Criminal Charges Wouldn-t Stop Me from 2024 White House Bid

Former President Donald Trump declared criminal charges will not stop him from pursuing his 2024 White House bid.

During an appearance on “The John Fredericks Show,” Trump was asked whether a potential conviction would stop his presidential campaign.

Trump responded by saying there was a provision in the U.S. Constitution from running for President, even if he was convicted.

“If going forward, right, you get these indictments, there ends up—you got a jury in D.C., you get convicted and sentenced—does that stop your campaign for president if you’re sentenced?” Fredericks asked Trump.

“Not at all. There’s nothing in the Constitution to say that it could,” Trump replied.

“Even the radical left crazies are saying, ‘No, that wouldn’t stop!’ And it wouldn’t stop me either.”

The interview came shortly before the grand jury issued a superseding indictment accusing Trump and Mar-a-Lago staffer Carlos De Oliveira of attempting to delete surveillance video footage at his Mar-a-Lago estate in the summer of 2022.

Trump slammed the allegations saying he doubted they would have had to release the footage, but they eventually complied with the investigators’ request.

“I don’t think we would have had to give it,” Trump said.

“These were security tapes. I don’t think we would have wanted to fight that … I doubt we would have ever wanted to fight that. I doubt we would have had to give it. Regardless, we gave it.”

De Oliveira allegedly conveyed in the superseding indictment Trump’s desire to delete the server containing security footage and enquired about the retention period for such footage.

Trump slammed the indictment, dismissing it as an attempt to intimidate people with falsehoods.

“I’m not sure they say—I’m not even sure what they’re saying,” Trump said, referring to the charges. “They’re trying to intimidate people, so they have to lie.”

“They want to destroy their lives,” he added, referring to the “weaponized” Justice Department.

Trump faces various state and federal charges, including allegations of falsifying business records and improper retention of classified records at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

The President also faces potential indictments related to his alleged role in the Jan 6 protests and Georgia’s investigation into possible interference in the 2020 election.

Despite the legal attacks, Trump remains the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
