“I think it would be tough for the public to take, you know, at a certain point, there’s a breaking point,” says former president.

Former President Donald Trump said he’d be “okay with” going to jail after being charged with 34 felonies in New York City and said the sentencing date set just before the Republican National Convention was “part of the game” the Democrats are playing.

Fox and Friends co-host Pete Hegseth in an interview with Trump that aired Sunday asked, “The judge could decide to say, hey, house arrest or even jail. How do you face what that could be?”

“I’m okay with it,” Trump replied. “I saw one of my lawyers the other day on television saying, ‘Oh no, you don’t want to do that to the president.’ I said: You don’t beg for anything. It’s just the way it is.”

Co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy pointed out the feds never targeted the Clinton Foundation despite compelling evidence of criminal activity.

“They never looked into the Clinton Foundation,” she said.

“They never went all the way with the Clinton Foundation,” Trump agreed. “They never went all the way with the Clinton Foundation, which is sort of interesting, isn’t it? But — so, that could happen. 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 …”

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

Hegseth also noted the court set Trump’s sentencing date just before the Republican National Convention on July 15.

“Yes, well, that’s part of the game,” Trump said.
