Donald Trump has posted on Truth Social, “As per a rather unimportant Fake News report in the NYT, I never asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders for an endorsement. I give endorsements, I don’t generally ask for them. With that being said, nobody has done more for her than I have, with the possible exception of her great father, Mike!”
Former president Donald Trump recently stated on Saturday that he would not drop out of the 2024 presidential race if he were indicted in any of the federal and state investigations he faces.
“I wouldn’t even think about leaving,” Trump told reporters at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, where attendees named him their favored presidential candidate shortly before he took the stage.
It has been noted that Trump is facing a number of investigations that include several criminal inquiries. Prosecutors in Fulton County, Georgia, have been probing the effort by Trump and his allies to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results, while the US Department of Justice is investigating the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, as well as Trump’s handling of classified material after he left office.
Trump remains defiant in the face of the ongoing probes and on Saturday argued “they’ve weaponized justice in our country.”
Trump has also refused to commit to backing the 2024 Republican nominee if it isn’t him, and on Saturday also said he has not decided whether he would sign the loyalty pledge Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is requiring of GOP 2024 candidates to participate in the debates.
“There are probably people that I wouldn’t be very happy about endorsing that are running, so we’ll see. I think some of them — I won’t use names, I don’t want to insult anybody — but some of them, I would not be very happy about,” Trump said.
