President Donald Trump told a talk show host on Thursday that even if he is criminally indicted he would have “no prohibition” against running for president again in 2024.
I can’t imagine being indicted I have done nothing wrong,” Trump said on the Hugh Hewitt Show. “I think you’d have problems in this country the likes of which you have ever seen before.”
Hewitt, who is a conservative radio host, then asked Trump, “What kind of problems?”
The former president responded: “Big problems.”

Trump faces numerous criminal investigations and lawsuits stemming from the January 6 insurrection and his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
A person can run for office if they face criminal charges, and theoretically they could even run for office from prison — as that is not barred by the Constitution.
Hewitt asked Trump if he was insinuating the possibility of violence if the former president was indicted.
“That’s not inciting,” Trump replied.
