Donald Trump has privately confided that he fears he will face multiple prosecutions if he loses the presidential election. The President of the United States has told aides he expects the chances of criminal charges against him to dramatically increase if he loses to Joe Biden on November 3.
According to The New York Times, Trump is worried about an ongoing probe into his finances by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance. But he is also said to fear separate federal probes into his wealth and business activities.
Trump faces possible fraud claims over allegations he inflated the value of his assets to obtain loans larger than he was entitled to. He denies any wrongdoing. Trump has long claimed his role as president makes him immune from criminal investigation – although the US Supreme Court ruled to the contrary in July.
The Times reported that despite Trump’s bravado on the campaign circuit, he regularly refers to his fears of losing to ‘this guy’ – Joe Biden – on November 3.
