Trump: ‘Nothing In the Constitution’ to Prevent Winning Presidency as a Convict

Former President Donald Trump is vowing not to leave the presidential race even if convicted and sentenced.


“[If] you’re convicted and sentenced. Does that stop your campaign for president?” conservative radio show host John Fredericks asked Trump.


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


Trump had been indicted by the state of New York for allegedly engaging in fraudulent business practices and by the federal government for his alleged mishandling of classified documents and attempts to cover up his possession of them. After receiving a target letter July 16, it is thought that Trump may be indicted once more for his role in the January 6, 2021 Capitol riots.

Trump currently leads the field of Republican presidential candidates, with polling averages putting him at 52.4% of the Republican primary vote. His closest rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, is currently averaging 15.5%.
