Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, said on "The New Abnormal" that he believes Trump won't run for president in 2024 because he is scared of losing.
He noted that Trump's popularity has dropped since his last run for office, and there are significant financial obstacles that prevent him from mounting a successful campaign.
Cohen, who wrote an outlandish book about Trump's alleged attempts to weaponize the US Department of Justice, said that Trump has a fragile ego. He added that despite his claims, he is still very thin-skinned.
From 2006 to 2018, Cohen served as Trump's personal attorney. According to The New York Times, he became increasingly hostile toward the former president. In August of that year Cohen pleaded guilty to various charges. Some of these included bank fraud, campaign finance violations, and tax evasion.
In November 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to the Senate committee. He was sentenced to three years in prison in December that year, and he was disbarred in February 2019. He served about a year in prison before he was released early due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
