Ex-president donald trump it would be worth it they face possible prison terms in order to “Make America Great Again” by winning the 2024 election, and also insisted that President Biden can no longer speak.
The former president, 77 years old, sat down with Kelly for a SiriusXM interview aired on Thursday that saw him share information on many of the issues he faces ahead of the 2024 election.
Kelly said the former president’s indictments in four separate cases were “very scary” to him because of “left-wing judges” and “left-wing juries” and asked if he saw himself in prison .
‘I have a great attitude, it doesn’t affect me at all because I fight for the country, I fight for the people’, before talking about how good his poll numbers were and that ‘people know that’s all. fake.’
He ultimately said, however, that it was worth facing both the charges and prison time to “Make America Great Again,” arguing that “our country is going to hell.”
Former President Donald Trump said it was worth facing jail time to “make America great again” by winning the 2024 election, while insisting President Joe Biden can no longer speak.
‘Our country is going to hell. Our country will fall. I think the country has one last chance, this is the most important election we’ve ever had.”
The former president also expressed melancholy at the thought that he may never visit his many famous properties around the world, citing his golf club in Scotland.
“I wish I was in Turnberry right now in Scotland or the many places I have … I may never see them again. But I think this is very important. I think we’re going to win the election.
trump was last charged in Georgia for his alleged roles in trying to overturn the 2020 election, with prosecutors using statutes typically seen in mass trials and accusing the former president of being the head of “a criminal organization” .
He faces three more criminal cases: one, for federal charges related to electoral interference; another federal case related to the mishandling of classified documents, and one in New York federal court over alleged hush money payments to Stormy Daniel.
Trump then turned to President Biden, whom he said he “can’t talk to” when Kelly asked if he thought Biden would make it to 2024.
“I can’t imagine,” Trump said. “I saw him yesterday, he can’t put two sentences together. It’s not an age thing, it’s a skill thing. He can’t talk!’
Trump also cited a The Washington Post wrote on Wednesday where David Ignatius wrote with a headline: “President Biden should not run again in 2024.”
The 77-year-old former president sat down with Kelly for a SiriusXM interview that aired Thursday that saw him share insights on many of the issues facing him ahead of the 2024 election.
Ultimately, however, he said it was worth facing the charges and potentially jail time to “make America great again,” arguing that “our country is going to hell.”
He then turned to President Biden, who he previously said was not too old to run, but “can’t talk” when Kelly asked him if he thought Biden would go far.
– I guess he has to debate. I hope he debates, I guess. The people want an intelligent president.
Trump also noted that he “doesn’t see himself” debating any of his opponents in the Republican Primary, suggesting he didn’t want to debate someone he was “like 60 points ahead of.”
Kelly even begged him to do one right before the Iowa caucuses, with Trump saying no.
Elsewhere in the interview, Trump said as he thought Joe Biden is “grossly incompetent” he doesn’t feel too old to be president.
With only three years separating the two front-runners in 2024, many are concerned about the increasing age of the presidential candidates, as well as other leaders of congress.
Polls show more than three-quarters of Americans think Biden, 80, is too old to serve another four years in office.
Trump sat down with former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, who now has her own podcast The Megyn Kelly Show, despite the duo’s strained past.

But Trump, 77, told Megyn Kelly that age isn’t the problem.
“I have a lot of friends who are 80 years old. I have friends … who are over 90 years old and sharp. Just, I mean, I would say, almost what they were before. No, not old. He’s incompetent,” Trump said of Biden.
If re-elected, Biden would break his own record for being the oldest US president ever inaugurated at 82.
Trump is the second oldest president after Biden. It was inaugurated at the age of 70. He beat former President Ronald Reagan by almost a year.
“Age is interesting, because some people are very sharp and some people lose it, but you also lose it in your 40s and 50s,” Trump told Kelly. — But no, it’s not too big at all. He is very incompetent.
“You look at some of the great world leaders, they were 80 years old and they did, I mean Churchill, a lot of people. They were phenomenal at 80. You know, there’s great wisdom if you’re not in a position like him, but if you go back 25 years, it wasn’t the sharpest either.
She also shared information about Melania and her youngest son Barron, 17.
“I think part of the beauty is that mystery,” Trump said when asked what people don’t understand about his wife of more than 20 years, before comparing her to Hollywood legend Greta Garbo.
“She was a great actress, but she was very reclusive, she never did an interview. I don’t see Melania like that, but she’s introspective and confident… She doesn’t need to be out there. [to get interviewed]”, explained.
‘She has confidence. She has a lot of confidence in herself.’
Trump also gave an update on Barron, saying the teenager is doing “very well” and is a “very good athlete.”
‘Barron is very tall, about six eight. And, and he’s a good boy. He is a handsome boy. He’s a great student, a very good student…we’re thinking about it [college] right now,’ he added.
It was a productive conversation for Trump and Kelly, who have a notoriously rocky history.
Trump claimed he did “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever she is” during the August 2015 primary debate he moderated.
But it looks like the feud is now water under the bridge, as Kelly released clips of her interview with Trump on Thursday morning.
Kelly had expressed her excitement, assuring viewers that the interview would be captivating.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” he said in the video. “It’s going to be great, it’s going to be spicy and it’s going to be tough, but it’s going to be good and hopefully we’ll both enjoy it.”
