Trump Says He’s Prepared To Go To Jail

In President Trump’s latest interview, the 45th president said he’s prepared to go to jail.

While speaking with Fox News, Trump stated, “I’m okay with going to jail.”

Trump added, “I saw one of my lawyers the other day on television saying: ‘Oh no, you don’t want to do that to the president. I said, don’t, you don’t beg for anything. It’s just the way it is.”

Watch the moment he said it here:

Here’s what CNN reported:

Former President Donald Trump said he is “OK” with serving potential jail time or being under house arrest following his historic conviction on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

“I’m OK with it,” Trump told Fox News in an interview that aired Sunday when asked about the potential punishments. “I saw one of my lawyers the other day on television saying, ‘Oh no, you don’t want to do that to the president.’ I said: You don’t beg for anything.”

But, Trump added, “I don’t think the public would stand it. I’m not sure the public would stand for it.”

“I think it would be tough for the public to take, you know, at a certain point, there’s a breaking point,” Trump said.

His comments come just days after a Manhattan jury found Trump guilty of all charges in his hush money trial.

Rikers Island is already preparing for Trump to be jailed.

Per The Mirror:

Donald Trump could be facing a stint behind bars after being the first US President to be convicted of a crime. New York City’s Democratic mayor, Eric Adams, has even stated that Rikers Island would be “ready” for Trump if he ends up being incarcerated.

The bombshell hush money trial, which has gripped the nation with its explosive testimonies over recent weeks, marks just the first of four criminal trials the presidential hopeful is embroiled in. Trump, already in the books as the first ex-president to face criminal charges, is now balancing his campaign efforts with court appearances as the November presidential election looms closer.

Following Trump’s conviction, Adams has stated that both Rikers Island jail and the Department of Corrections are “ready” to accommodate him, marking a potential first for an ex-President to be incarcerated.
