Following his conviction in the hush money criminal case in New York, former President Trump issued a public “breaking point” warning in a Sunday interview if he were to be sentenced to house arrest or prison time.

Trump, the presumptive 2024 GOP presidential nominee, was convicted last week of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to conceal a scheme to conceal potentially damaging information from the American public advance of the 2016 presidential election.

“I don’t know that the public would stand it, you know? I don’t — I’m not sure the public would stand for it,” Trump said in a recent interview on ‘Fox & Friends.’

“I think it’d be tough for the public to take. You know, at a certain point, there’s a breaking point,” Trump continued.

Judge Juan Merchan scheduled Trump’s sentencing for July 11, which is four days prior to the Republican National Convention, during which he is expected to be officially recognized as the party’s nominee.

The legal team of Trump has expressed its intention to appeal the conviction.

In the Fox News interview, Trump expressed his satisfaction with the prospect of serving prison time, stating that his primary concern is the public’s response.

“I’m OK with it. I saw one of my lawyers the other day on television saying, oh, no, you don’t want to do that to the pres — I said, don’t, you know, beg for anything. It’s just the way it is.” Trump concluded.
