Mary Trump, the former President’s niece, believes that Donald Trump may still be able to compete in the presidential elections even if he’s incarcerated. She thinks the former President has enough of a loyal following that they would support him regardless of his situation.
And while some find this claim outrageous, it is not outside the realm of possibility given the current state of politics in America. It is a stark reminder of how powerful and influential President Trump still is to many Americans despite his recent legal troubles.
Over the weekend, President Trump sparked a heated debate by tweeting in all caps and advocating an uprising. In his posts, Trump urged supporters to ‘TAKE OUR NATION BACK!’ in an early-morning all-caps rant over reports he claims say he ” WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.”
“The base certainly doesn’t see him as compromised and as a loser. Right?” stated the former president’s niece on The Mary Trump Show.
“In fact, you know, because it’s taken so long for him to be indicted, which is to say because he hasn’t been indicted yet. You know, think about that.”
“We are over two years out from January 6. The first that we are over two years, almost two and a half years out from the election interference in Georgia. And it’s not alleged because I heard the audiotape. Okay. I don’t even know how many years are we, years we are out from the financial sorry, the elections fraud he committed by writing Stormy Daniels a $130,000 check. That might be the first thing he gets indicted for.”
“So it’s been such a long time that even if he is indicted, I think a lot of people on the left are going to be like, ‘Yeah, well, that took too long. And now he’s never going to get prosecuted. Or even if he gets prosecuted, he’s never going to get punished.’”
“And people on the right. I think it just strengthens him with his base. I think, you know,… he could run for the nomination from prison and still get it, right? So he will run on on his indictments. He will fundraise off of his indictments. It will prove what a martyr he is to the cause. It will prove how what a witch hunt it is. It will prove all of the false narratives he’s been telling about himself since he was friggin two years old. So now I don’t think we should be happy about anything having to do with the Republican Party and whoever their presidential candidate ends up being.”
