Elon Musk says Donald Trump will get a landslide victory in 2024 if indicted
Billionaire Elon Musk has claimed former United States President Donald Trump would be re-elected in a “landslide victory” if charged by Manhattan prosecutors.
Mr Musk was reacting to reports that Mr Trump would be indicted as early as next week. “If that happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory,” Musk tweeted on the microblogging site today. It’s worth noting that the Twitter CEO said so in reaction to a Fox News report that described how Trump might be “handcuffed,” “fingerprinted and processed,” and “escorted into the courtroom.”
If that happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory.

Mr Trump himself posted on his Truth Social platform that he expects to be jailed on Tuesday, adding that his fans should “protest” to “take back our nation”. He said: “Illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly political office of the Manhattan District Attorney. The far-field Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday next week. Demonstrate, take back our nation! “
“They are killing our nation as we sit and watch. We must save America! Protest, protest, protest!!!” he says further.
If the Manhattan District Attorney charges Mr Trump, the 76-year-old would become the first former president to be charged with a crime in the United States.
According to a report published in the Independenta representative for Mr. Trump pointed out that there is currently no information on the specific date of a possible indictment.
“There has been no notification, other than illegal leaks from the Justice Department and the district attorney’s office, to NBC and other bogus news outlets, that the radical left-wing Democratic prosecutor funded by George Soros in Manhattan has decided to take his witch hunt to the next level. President Trump rightly points out his innocence and the weaponization of our system of injustice. He will be in Texas next weekend for a giant rally. Make America Great Again!” the spokesperson said in a statement.
