A very in debt Trump is planning to cash in on his time as presidentPosted by Thomas Bush / November 23, 2020
Aides also suggest that Trump wants to be a political leader in the years to come. According to a White House aide, Donald Trump is “very aware” that he lost the election, but he is putting up a fight as a “performance” for his supporters.
That weirdly fits in with the fact that Trump is using his “election fraud defense fund” to fundraise for his own legal fees pay off campaign debts.
Honestly, this is probably the only thing that will come of Trump’s nuisance lawsuits––one last con against his supporters. No one else is buying the fraud claims. Even Fox News interrupted Kayleigh McEnany, Trump’s Press Secretary, in the middle of a tirade about alleged voter fraud––a tirade with no evidence. The Fox News host said, “Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear: she’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” as he interrupted her.
Even if Fox News abandons Trump entirely, don’t expect him to leave quietly. A former director of the CIA is worried that Trump will rile up his base and possibly drive them to violence. Even though his aides tell him the legal assaults will be useless, he intends to throw every lawsuit at the wall in the hopes that one sticks. Weirdly, Trump seems to be pretending that everything is normal. He’s tweeting that he’s won the race, and he spent Saturday golfing, like he did for most of his presidency.
