    Trump assured that he is not afraid of going to prison: “I don’t even think about that”

    Former President Donald Trump, who leads the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, assured that He is not afraid of going to prison even though he faces a large number of charges for its withholding of classified documents and its failed attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

    During an exclusive interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker, the former president noted that although he has been impeached four times this year, The possibility of going to jail is not something that keeps him up at night.

    “I don’t even think about that. I guess I’m built a little differently, because I’ve had a few people come up to me and say, ‘How do you do it, sir? How does he do it?’ “I don’t even think about that,” he said during the interview, which was recorded Thursday at Trump’s golf club in Bedminster and airs Sunday on NBC affiliates.

    “These are corrupt people I’m dealing with. They are destroying our country. I don’t even think about that. The only thing I think about is making the country great, making the United States great. Look, these are political accusations, these are banana republic accusations. “These are third world accusations,” Trump added.

    “When you say, do I lose sleep? I sleep. I sleep. Because I really feel like, in the end, we’re going to win.“He added a little later, after Welker returned to the question about the chances of the former president facing some time in prison.

    Asked what he sees when he looks at his mugshot, Trump said: “I see someone who loves this country, and I see someone who loves this country. I see tremendous injustice. “I think very few people could have endured what I handled.”

    Among the most notable comments from the interview, Trump took responsibility for the decision to try to reverse his 2020 loss.

    “We have a lot of people and it is my choice. It was my decision. But I heard some people“He indicated while acknowledging that he did not listen to the advice of the main lawyers of the administration and the campaign who told him that he had lost the elections “because he did not respect them as lawyers.”

    When Welker pointed out that he was the one who had hired them, Trump described them as traitors and claimed that he never knew them as people.

    “That doesn’t mean you hire them and you never met these people. You receive a recommendation. They turn out to be RINOs or they’re not that good. In many cases, I did not respect them. But he did respect others. “I respected many others who said the elections were rigged,” he said.

    Trump also said he only needed about 22,000 votes spread across key battleground states to be declared the winner, a figure that would be accurate if the votes had been cast for him instead of Biden.

    “Are you admitting that you didn’t win?” Welker asked.

    “I’m not recognizing it. No. I say I won the election“, he reiterated.

    Trump faces trial in federal court in Washington, DC, accused of conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding: the certification of electoral votes; obstruction; and conspiracy to deny the right to vote.

    Those charges arise from a nearly two-month campaign to prevent Biden’s election from being consolidated, an effort that culminated in his supporters storming the Capitol on January 6, 2021 to prevent electoral votes from being counted.

    He has also been charged in Georgia in connection with his attempt to overturn that state’s result.

    He said he has no regrets about a Jan. 2, 2021, phone call in which he asked Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger to gather more votes to overturn his loss in the state.

    “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state,” Trump said in the call, which he said was recorded illegally because he did not give his consent.

    In a separate federal trial, Trump has been accused of preserving and concealing classified documents from the federal government.

    He said he never ordered anyone to delete security footage from his Mar-a-Lago resort, and he said he will testify about it in court.

    But the most immediate legal danger for Trump may come from his actions on January 6. At the interview, questioned the testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, a White House aidewho told the House committee on Jan. 6 that he had been so determined to go to the Capitol after a speech near the White House that day that he lunged at a Secret Service officer and tried to choke him to change the direction of your limousine.

    “First of all, I had very little to do with January 6th. They asked me to speak. And I was the president of the United States. I’m allowed to do it. But they asked me to speak,” he said.

    “I wanted to go down peacefully and patriotically to the Capitol. The Secret Service, who I have great respect for, said, ‘Sir, you better not do that. It could be dangerous,’” he added.

    “You know, one person said I grabbed the man by the neck,” he said. “Actually, I wish I was that strong to be able to do that. These are all tough guys, smart guys. It’s… the craziest story I’ve ever heard. You mean I was in ‘The Beast’ (nickname for the presidential limousine) and the Secret Service didn’t want it, so I took a guy who was like a black belt in karate, grabbed him by the neck and tried to strangle him… How ridiculous ”, he stated.
