Trump ‘Won’t Be Able to Vote for Himself’ Next Year Because He’ll Be Convicted by Then

Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.), a 2024 Republican presidential candidate, said Monday on Fox Business Network’s “Kabuto Coast to Coast” that if former President Donald Trump were the Republican nominee, He said he could not vote. Because he would be a convicted felon.

Christie said, “Neil, if you’re going to run for office, you need to do something in this country. First and foremost, let me tell you what I’m for. I’m a constitutional law scholar. I’m a man. and I believe in the Constitution more than I believe in women.”

Kabuto said, “But the Constitution says nothing about a convicted felon, because he has 97 chances to get away with it, and one of them… Because he might survive. So what? What does the conservative among you say?”

Christie said, “How about this?” He’s scheduled to go to trial the day before Super Tuesday. I believe he will be convicted at his trial on January 6th in Washington, DC. That’s primarily because, as you know, Mark Meadows, his former chief of staff and one of the founders of the Freedom Caucus, is scheduled to testify. I’m against him! he will be found guilty. Imagine this. If he were our candidate, he wouldn’t be able to vote for himself. ”

“But he can become president,” Kabuto said.

Christy said, “Yes.”

Kabuto said, “This is what I’m talking about with other politicians. They’re not as immersed in the fight as you guys are. But they say, look, he’s hurt by all these charges. If you haven’t, a conviction won’t make a difference. Do you think it might?”

“I think a conviction would be different for two reasons. One is that liberal prosecutors will no longer be talking about him. Mark Meadows committed a crime — committed a crime,” Christie said. Because if you don’t commit a crime, you don’t need immunity — and Donald Trump will have a former chief of staff saying he committed a crime on his watch.For conservative voters, hearing that from Mark Meadows It’s very different to hear it from Jack Smith.”

He added: “Secondly, your colleagues on the jury are convicting you. Again, it’s not the two-tier justice system that many people fear. I think it’s going to be very different. The question will be, will there be someone who will stand up to him until that moment so it doesn’t end? And that’s what I’ve been getting into recently through conventions. That’s why I said there is.”
