MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch spoke out on Friday to predict that former President Donald Trump will end up in jail.
After pointing out how “shady” real estate guys are, Deutsch claimed on “Morning Joe” that Trump always played “outside the lines,” adding that jail will be the “final act” for the ex-president.
“Yeah, [Trump] is worried,” Deutsch said, according to Fox News. “You know, real estate guys, to begin with, are shady just in the way they do business, most of them — I hate to say that for my real estate friends watching — but Donald Trump is by far the bottom of the barrel. Anything that you can do as far as playing outside the lines, this guy has done throughout his entire life.”
“They’re going to take him apart, you know,” he added. “And if you just think about the mindset of a federal person or a local person or any law enforcement type person who works at a relatively, you know, small salary, they live for these moments. Here’s a guy who pretended he was bigger than the house. Here’s a guy that literally tried to take down who we are.”
“Nobody is going to approach this … with a soft knife if you will,” Deutsch concluded. “So, expect Donald Trump to spend the rest of his life fighting or in jail. I don’t mean life in jail, but I really believe that’s where it ends for him. I mean, I know it’s hard for people to see that, but I really believe he ends up behind bars. I think that is the final act of this really, really repulsive opera we have been watching.”
Deutsch also said in this interview that there is no way that Trump will be the Republican presidential candidate in 2024.
“Donald Trump will not be a candidate in 2024, Donald Trump will not be a viable alternative, but you’ve got every one of these Republicans that just somehow believe this is the Holy Grail and if they move away from him they won’t get re-elected a year from now, two years from now, three years from now,” Deutsch said. “And they’re not wrong, I mean when you still see that 75 percent of Republicans think that he should be the man … they are lemmings at this point.”
