Much has been said about Donald Trump being quick to declare his candidacy for a 2024 presidential bid once he leaves the White House next month, but it is more likely that his life will turn into a living nightmare immediately after he leaves the Oval Office .
As NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss pointed out Tuesday, Trump will most likely be so deeply in legal and financial trouble that he will no longer have time to lead a conventional life after the presidency – let alone make another presidential bid .
“This is someone who has big financial problems, big legal problems,” said the decision of the outgoing president. “He will likely be overwhelmed by them, perhaps very soon after he leaves office.”

OK. I try to do this with a straight face. No, I don’t think Donald Trump will build houses for those in need. No, I don’t think he’s going to start a foundation. He tried this once and it turned out to be corrupt. This is someone who has big financial problems, big legal problems. He will likely be overwhelmed by them, perhaps very soon after he leaves office.
Trump ran for re-election to avoid legal problems
It doesn’t take a political expert to see that Donald Trump doesn’t like being president. For the past four years, he has shown no interest in serving the American people, only strengthening their ego and enriching themselves and their families.
During the 2020 campaign, he had no substantive agenda for a second term. MAGA rallies were essentially self-therapy sessions where Trump whined about how mean everyone was to him and urged his followers to keep him at the White House forever.
Donald Trump will no longer be president when Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20, and the American people will finally see why he was so afraid to step down.
