In a recent exclusive interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” former President Donald Trump told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he was not going to be dropping out of the 2024 presidential race even if he was convicted.
He then proceeded to accuse the left of using former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) tactics in an effort to stop his reelection. Carlson also stated that Democrats like New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg did not appear to be trying to stop Trump from being in the general election through all of the lawsuits and charges.
In response, Trump said, “The old Soviet process,” a reference to a mantra credited to Soviet Internal Affairs Minister Lavrentiy Beria who had said: “Show me the man, I’ll show you the crime.”
In regards to Bragg’s probe and case in particular he stated that it was “so off” and that even the statute of limitation years are “off.” This is something that many legal scholars have also argued in regard to Trump’s recent indictment.
Trump said that he would “never drop out” and that this is “not my thing. I wouldn’t do it.” He further claimed that while many Democrats have been saying that he is “terrible” and “guilty,” he has been surprised to see that some of them have also supported that he is innocent.
He added that he thinks it was “Andrew McCabe, the FBI [assistant director] who I fired,” who said that they had no case against Trump.
