3 mins read

Former US President, Donald Trump has dismissed worries about potential legal consequences and expressed unwavering confidence in his ultimate triumph in the forthcoming US presidential election.

In an exclusive interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker, former President Donald Trump expressed his unwavering confidence despite facing multiple indictments this year.

According to NBC News, when asked about the prospect of prison time, Trump responded, “I don’t even think about it. I’m built a little differently, I guess. I sleep because I truly feel that, in the end, we’re going to win.”

During the interview, Trump discussed his involvement in the events of January 6 and the charges related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. He took responsibility for his actions but mentioned that he didn’t heed advice from some lawyers who told him he had lost the election, characterizing them as “RINOs” (Republicans in name only).

Trump, who is currently leading the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, suggested that he needed only a few thousand more votes in key battleground states to secure victory.

When asked if he was acknowledging that he didn’t win the election, he firmly stated, “I’m not acknowledging that. No. I say I won the election.”

Trump is currently facing trial in federal court in Washington, D.C., on charges including conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of an official proceeding related to the January 6 events. He has also been charged in Georgia for his efforts to overturn the state’s election results.

Regarding a controversial phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger in which he asked for more votes, Trump defended his actions, claiming it was “false” and stating that he never ordered anyone to delete security footage from his Mar-a-Lago resort.

However, Trump’s immediate legal jeopardy may come from his actions on January 6. He disputed the testimony of a White House aide who alleged that he had tried to choke a Secret Service officer and played down his role in the ensuing riot, stating, “I had very little to do with Jan. 6. I was asked to speak. And I was the president of the United States. I’m allowed to do that.”

When asked about the aide’s account, Trump responded, “Dispute it? Who wouldn’t dispute it? She’s — the craziest account I’ve ever heard. How ridiculous.”

In the interview, Trump also accused President Joe Biden of propagating “Biden indictments” despite the appointment of special counsels to investigate allegations against both Trump and Biden. NBC News has extended an invitation to President Biden for a similar interview with Kristen Welker.
