Rev. Al Sharpton says Trump is not running for president: “This election to him is about him not going to jail.”

Trump faces 91 felony counts across two state courts and two different federal districts, any of which could potentially produce a prison sentence. In New York, he lost a civil suit case and was ordered to pay $454.2 million for overstating his net worth and real estate values to dupe lenders. Trump’s team filed an appeal, but it was rejected on Wednesday, and he must soon find the cash or post a bond to prevent New York authorities from seizing his property while he appeals. Meanwhile, Trump was allowed to run his businesses in New York during the higher court appeal process.

Trump is Republican frontrunner and expected to face Joe Biden in the general election

Trump remains the odds-on favorite to win the nomination to be the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential candidate. He has so far won in every state, including the states of New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, South Carolina, and most recently, Michigan. As Trump continues his journey to the Republican nomination, a serious question emerges: what happens if Trump wins the nomination and campaigns for the general election as a convicted criminal?

Trump faces a total of roughly seven centuries in total jail time

Trump faces a total of roughly seven centuries in total jail time, spread between dozens of various charges of differing seriousness. On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court announced they would be looking into Trump’s case to determine whether former President Donald Trump can be charged with crimes related to trying to interfere in the federal election. They’ve agreed to put a hold on the case while they figure out if a past president can’t be taken to court for things they did while in power, which is what Trump is arguing.

Prolonging the legal processes is Trump’s main target

But it looks like Trump’s legal team is doing everything in its power to prolong all of these cases until the general election. The idea behind this move, according to legal experts, is that Trump can pardon himself if he wins the presidential elections and, therefore, buy his freedom. This is what a long-time Trump friend also agrees with.

Rev. Al Sharpton thinks Trump is just buying time

Rev. Al Sharpton, who has known Donald Trump for four decades, recently shared his thoughts on Trump’s current situation. He believes that Trump is struggling a lot because he’s facing many legal challenges, including civil lawsuits, negative rulings, and criminal charges. Sharpton thinks that Trump realizes he won’t be able to escape these problems easily.

When Sharpton appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” he was questioned if Trump appeared to be losing his composure more and more each day. Sharpton agreed, suggesting that this view of Trump is probably correct.

“I think we must realize that Donald Trump is running not only for the nomination and then for the presidency, he’s running to try and convince four juries not to vote him into being a felon,” Sharpton explained.

“So the idea that he would somehow be disciplined when he is literally fighting for his freedom, this election to him is about him not going to jail,” he continued. “This is not about him going to the White House, this is about saying, ‘If I get in, they’ll have to delay state trials, he hopes, and pardon himself on a federal trial.”

“He is going to remain unhinged because he is, for the first time I think, very frightened that it could all be over,” he concluded.
