Barbara Res, former executive vice president of The Trump Organization, appeared Sunday on CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera and raised questions about how, and where, President Trump will end his term. Trump and his finances, and those of The Trump Organization, are the focus of multiple investigations in the state of New York. Res believes that if it appears those investigations could lead to charges, Trump may decide to leave the country before he leaves office.

“I think catastrophe comes except for Donald. You know, as much as it’s almost impossible to think how he’s going to weasel his way out of it, I think he will,” Res said. “If there are real legitimate charges leveled against him or hanging over his head the minute he becomes a citizen, I think he may leave the country. I think he may leave the country before the end of his presidency.”

The president’s niece, Mary Trump, author of Too Much and Never Enough, agreed that Trump leaving the country is a real possibility.

“I do also think that’s a possibility. I don’t know if it’s the most likely thing, but again, we don’t know how the next 45 days are gonna play out,” Mary said. “If the walls really do start closing in on him, right before the inauguration will be his last, best opportunity to get away unscathed. So it’s gonna be fascinating, but also pretty terrifying.”

If the president stays in the country, Mary Trump doesn’t believe there’s any way he goes to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

“I don’t think there’s anything on the planet that would get him to — one, that would be a concession,” Trump said. “Two, would be an acknowledgement that the incoming administration is legitimate, and Donald wants to avoid that at all cost. And three, it would be missing an opportunity to take the spotlight from President Biden and to himself.”
