Trump is not backing down by any means.
In a recent interview, former President Donald Trump addressed the ongoing legal challenges he faces, including four criminal indictments. When asked whether he worries about the possibility of ending up in prison, Trump responded by stating that he doesn’t dwell on such concerns.
According to Newsmax, Trump remarked, “I suppose I have a unique perspective on this because people have approached me, asking, ‘How do you handle it, sir? How do you manage not to worry?'” This response came during an interview with Kristen Welker on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” recorded at Trump’s Bedminster golf club in New Jersey.
As the conversation continued, Trump reiterated his stance on the matter. “When you wonder if I lose sleep over this, I can tell you that I sleep well,” he affirmed. “I have a genuine belief that, ultimately, we will prevail.“
During the interview, Trump also addressed the charges against him, including allegations of mishandling classified documents and attempting to overturn the 2020 election results. He took responsibility for the decisions made in an attempt to challenge his election loss to President Joe Biden.
Regarding these decisions, he remarked, “I had a range of advisers, and ultimately, the choices were mine.” He later added, “I made the calls, but I did listen to certain individuals.”
Trump admitted that he did not follow the guidance provided by campaign lawyers and key administration officials regarding the election, as he did not hold them in high regard. “I didn’t have much respect for them as lawyers,” he explained. “In many cases, they turned out to be RINOs or simply not up to the task. However, I did respect the opinions of others who believed that the election was rigged.”
When questioned about whether he acknowledged his election loss, Trump remained firm in his stance. “I don’t concede that. No, I maintain that I won the election,” he asserted.
