Twitter CEO Elon Musk stunned the world with a bold prediction on Saturday, suggesting former President Donald Trump could have a major advantage in the 2024 presidential election if he were to be arrested.
In a tweet viewed nearly 14 million times, Musk wrote: “If this happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory.” Reports say law enforcement agencies are preparing for an indictment of Trump as early as next week for his part in hush money payments to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election cycle.
If this happens, it will be the beginning of Trump’s reelection. https://t.co/sQJsHsrib0

Should Trump face charges, it would mark the first time in history that a former U.S. president has been indicted. While Trump denies any wrongdoing and calls it a political witch hunt, he has urged supporters to protest if he is charged.
Meanwhile, the 2024 Republican presidential race is heating up with several contenders entering the contest including former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, business tycoon Vivek Ramaswamy, former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
