Former President Donald Trump has stated that he will not enter into any type of plea agreement regarding his current indictments.
Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, the 45th president responded unequivocally to the question, “Is there any chance you would take a plea deal in Georgia?”
“I don’t do plea deals,” Trump bluntly stated.
“We did nothing wrong.
“We don’t ever take a plea deal.”
Alvin Bragg, the district attorney of Manhattan, has indicted Trump on allegations of falsifying business records.
Special counsel Jack Smith has obtained two indictments against Donald Trump, one relating to classified documents at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club residence in South Florida and the other relating to Trump’s challenges to the 2020 presidential election.
Trump may also be indicted in Georgia, where Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis reportedly has a grand jury investigating Trump’s challenge to the 2020 election results in the Peach State.
The current frontrunner for the presidential nomination pointed at the reporter and continued:
“We don’t take plea deals,” he said. “That’s a wise guy question.”

He once again reiterated he will not cut a deal as he “did nothing wrong.”
“These indictments are brought out by Biden, who can’t even put two sentences together,” Trump continued. “This is Joe Biden, ’cause he can’t win the election by himself. He can’t win the election based on votes.”
59 percent of 1,279 respondents in a CNN poll conducted during the month of July disagreed with how Vice President Joe Biden is performing his duties as commander-in-chief.
To make matters worse for Biden, 54 percent have more confidence in Republicans in Congress than they do in the current president (45 percent).
On the August 6 episode of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Trump’s attorney, John Lauro, had only one word to say in response to the news that the president would not accept a plea bargain.
Lauro simply responded “no” and stated that he will “absolutely, 100 percent” file a motion to dismiss the charges.
