During Thursday night’s interview on Meet The Press, former President and 2024 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump spoke about the possibility of pardoning himself: I have no interest in even thinking about it —and I could have done it,” Trump told host Kristen Welker.
“I could have pardoned myself when I left. People said ‘You can pardon yourself.’ I had a couple of attorneys that said ‘You can do it if you want.’ I had some people that said ‘It would look bad if you do.’ I think it would look terrible,” Trump said.
“Here’s the story: these people are thugs. Horrible people. Fascist. Thugs. They’ve been after me since the day I came down the escalator with Melania,” Trump said.
“I could have given myself a pardon … that would have saved me from all these fake charges.”
