No one knows for sure what the future holds for Donald Trump, but there are plenty of folks who are willing to publicly speculate on the subject.
The first real public appearance by Trump during his post-presidency period will come at the end of this month, as No. 45 speaks to the CPAC conference. Insiders with knowledge of Trump’s intended speech have indicated that The Don will use the engagement to reiterate his power within the Republican Party, and that he will likely tease a potential 2024 run for President.
Former Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen has a very different idea about what the future holds for his one-time boss.
Former President Donald Trump’s ex-attorney Michael Cohen told MSNBC’s Katy Tur that he thinks his old client ought to start looking into getting a “custom made jumpsuit.”
Cohen’s prediction that Trump could wind up in jail came a few hours after the Supreme Court ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can obtain Trump’s tax returns as part of New York prosecutors’ investigation into his past business dealings. Cohen said he’s not sure what exactly the documents may reveal, but was confident enough to claim “it does not look good for” Trump.
Cohen’s claim was quickly being shared online.

It has been hard to believe Cohen, however.
The former Trump lawyer has been under house arrest after being convicted of lying to Congress in the pursuit of clearing Donald Trump’s name back when the two still had a functional relationship.
