Michael Cohen Says Trump Won’t Run In 2024 – He’s Making Too Much Money By Not Running

Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump continues to hint and suggest that he plans to run for the White House again in 2024, but not everyone who knows him best believes he has an intention of doing so.

One of those people is Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, who spoke with New York 1 to discuss his new book, Revenge, which focuses on Trump’s use of government agencies to target his perceived enemies.

According to Cohen, the Donald isn’t about to run in two years:

“If you read the fine print in that super PAC, he is permitted to use 90 percent [of donations] at his own discretion. In essence, it makes $0.90 of every dollar, a slush fund for him. That all goes away if, in fact, he runs then it has to go into the campaign. So, he would then be competing with his own campaign on top of that.”

Indeed, the figures support what Cohen says: By the start of 2022, Trump’s super PAC had raised $100 million, almost none of which he’s using to support Republican candidates running in the midterm elections. Instead, he’s using it to pay his bills and support his lifestyle.

Cohen also noted:

“More importantly, Trump has a real problem with being called a loser. There’s something inside of him possibly because he knows that he is cannot stomach being a two-time loser. He has an incredibly fragile ego. To become a two-time loser would just destroy him. So, I do not, and I’ve always stated the same, I do not believe he’s going to run.”
