Former President Donald Trump said last week that the prospect of prison time related to the four criminal cases against him did not worry him. Trump’s attitude reflects a high level of confidence expressed by the former president’s legal team in beating the current indictments.
Trump was asked about whether he thinks about prison time during a recent interview with NBC News. He told the network that he does not “even think about it.”
“I’m built a little differently, I guess, because I have had people come up to me and say, ‘How do you do it, sir? How do you do it?’ I don’t even think about it,” the former president said.
Trump further stated that he sleeps well “because I truly feel that, in the end, we’re going to win.”
The former president then cited a number of cases in which he believes President Joe Biden has lied recently. This includes Biden’s claim that he was at the site of the World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 12, 2001, although he was in Washington at the time. Trump also cited Biden’s claims that he drove trucks and flew airplanes.
“Look at all the lies he’s told over the last couple of weeks,” Trump said.
He further said that Biden even lied about his golf handicap.
“Everything he says is like a lie, it’s terrible,” the former president told interviewer Kristen Welker.

Trump’s comments reflect a claim Biden made Monday that he was at Ground Zero the day following the 9/11 attacks. However, this information was quickly corrected by the White House.
Biden’s comments this week follow a summer in which his advanced age has been called into question by conservative critics. The president, aged 80, is currently the oldest in American history.
The president has had a number of speaking and physical stumbles this year, including a recent press conference in Vietnam which was ended by his staff while he was still speaking.
