Donald Trump, former president of the United States, has made headlines once again after stating that he would not drop out of the 2024 presidential race even if he was indicted. Trump made the statement on Sunday during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which many have described as lacklustre and uneventful.
Despite the lack of excitement during his speech, Trump did manage to stir up controversy with his comments regarding the possibility of an indictment. “Let them indict me, I’m not going anywhere,” he said, adding that he would still continue his campaign for the presidency.
This isn’t the first time Trump has made such remarks. Earlier this month, he also stated that he would run for president again in 2024, regardless of any legal challenges he may face.
Many have criticised Trump’s statements, with some accusing him of attempting to undermine the rule of law. Others have pointed out that an indictment would be a serious obstacle for any presidential candidate, regardless of their political affiliation.
Despite the backlash, Trump appears determined to continue his political career, with the 2024 election already shaping up to be a highly controversial and closely-fought contest. As always, the former president seems to relish the attention and controversy that follows him wherever he goes.
