  'Not above the law': Why Trump's decision to run for president won't change his legal woes Experts say Trump's presidential announcement will have little to no impact on his sweeping legal troubles left over from his first White House stint.Would President Joe Biden's administration take the historic step of prosecuting a political rival? How might a high-profile criminal or civil case proceeding against Trump during a presidential campaign be viewed by voters? What are the implications for the Department of Justice if prosecutors charged Trump but failed to win a conviction?

Former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney predicted Wednesday that Donald Trump will not win the presidency again in 2024.

Trump could become the GOP nominee if there’s a crowded primary field, Mulvaney told CNN’s Kasie Hunt. But the former president will ultimately lose the general election “because he makes it a referendum on himself.”

“It’s not Donald Trump versus Joe Biden or whomever. It’s not Republican versus Democrat,” said Mulvaney, who as Trump’s acting chief of staff admitted the then-president’s attempted quid pro quo with Ukraine.

“It’s Donald Trump versus Donald Trump and one of the people who can beat Donald Trump is Donald Trump. That’s exactly what happened in 2020,” he continued.

Trump voters weigh in on potential 2024 run

  Trump voters weigh in on potential 2024 run The BBC asked former Trump voters: Would you support him if he runs for the White House in 2024?The BBC spoke to former Trump voters and asked whether or not he still has their support. With more Republican candidates in the mix, it seems Donald Trump will have some competition to get through the primaries and on to the general election.

“A bunch of folks could beat” Trump in a head-to-head primary contest, such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), said Mulvaney.

But Trump would emerge victorious if it’s a larger field, he said.

Asked if potential GOP presidential candidates should “check their egos” to narrow down the field in order to stop Trump from winning the nomination, Mulvaney advised them to not define themselves with regards to Trump.

He declined to endorse any rumored hopefuls, though, saying he was friends with them.

"I get that's his style, that's his instinct, it's worked before, it certainly worked in the 2016 primary process, but...it's a really high risk instinct.
