One of former President Trump’s attorneys, Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to prison in 2018 for his actions, has claimed on Sunday the former president will not run for office again after losing the 2020 election.
Key Details that Cohen Revealed
Last week, Cohen completed his three-year sentence which included incarceration and at-home confinement following his conviction of tax fraud, campaign finance law violations, and giving false statements to Congress.
In an interview with Meet The Press, Cohen explained that Trump ruining office again will damage his “big grift” capability of raising funds from his supporters to run again.
According to Cohen, most of Trump’s supporters have donated to him because of Trump’s so-called “big lie” or Trump’s inaccurate assertions that he was robbed of the 2020 election.
In the event that Trump loses in 2024, “which he will,” Cohen continued, “what happens to the big lie? He can’t be like the boy who cried wolf… and there goes his money.”
Big numbers Says it All
56 million dollars. That is the amount the New York Times reported that Trump raised that scooped away via WinRed, the Republican party’s main donations website, during the first half of this year. As of June, he had made over $100 million on hand in cash. Now, that’s more money than any other Republican politician ever made on the website.
After the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol, President Trump was impeached for the second time by the House at the end of his presidency.
Despite a continual flirtation with the idea of running again since President Biden assumed office, Trump has not genuinely committed to running for Presidency.
A couple of weeks ago, he declared that he can easily win the Republican party’s nomination.
Meanwhile, Trump’s former press secretary, Stephanie Grisham told his supporters in October that if Trump runs again, things could become very dire.
Grisham “warns people” that if Trump is re-elected, “he will be about revenge” while his second administration will be “worse” since he will no longer have to worry about being re-elected. Meanwhile, in July, Trump’s former spokesperson Jason Miller said there is a 50/50 shot Trump will run again.
Sudden Change of Course
Clearly, Trump’s 2024 campaign will look quite different from his previous campaigns. His Twitter account was permanently blocked after the revolt, and he had his Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube accounts suspended permanently.
