(TheRedWire.com) – On Thursday, former president Donald Trump revealed during an NBC News appearance that he was “very unlikely” to pardon himself even if he won the White House in 2024.
During an interview with Kristen Welker, the new “Meet the Press” moderator, set to air in full on Sunday, Trump, who has been indicted four times this year, maintained his innocence and claimed that he had committed no wrongdoings.
When Welker asked about a possible self-pardon, Trump said it was “very unlikely.” He then questioned what he had done wrong and that they would put him in jail for challenging the election. However, Trump did not completely rule out the possibility and even pointed out that he had been encouraged to pardon himself during his first term in the White House. Still, he stated that others had encouraged him not to do it because it would not look good.
Trump also talked about the gun charge against Hunter Biden and noted that there were two justice systems in America right now, one for Biden’s family and one for Trump. As he pointed out, Hunter Biden had been given the best plea deal in a century and was a plea deal that someone could write a book on.
Finally, as he pointed out earlier on Thursday, “the gun charge is the only crime that does not implicate Hunter Biden.”
