Donald Trump's disgraced ex-fixer says he's convinced the former president won't run for the White House again - and that he's only teasing a second stint in office to keep donor cash flowing in.
Cohen, speaking to Meet the Press on Sunday, said that Trump will not run and merely hold on for as long as possible to collect money from donors and 'keep the grift going.'
The former lawyer turned Trump critic - who spent prison time for tax evasion and campaign finance violations - said that Trump is running the greatest grift in American history.
'Donald Trump has made it very clear, right, that he is grifting off of the American people, these supporters, these individuals that are just sending money to him at record levels,' Cohen told host Chuck Todd.
'It's really amazing that people don't see exactly what the guy is doing,' he added. In August, Trump was revealed to have raised more than $100 million from donors since leaving office, with that war chest likely to have swollen substantially since then.

Cohen, while promoting his book Disloyal and podcast Mea Culpa, referred to the former president as a sociopath.
'Please understand ... and this is really important for all of the viewers as well. One of the things Donald Trump has done is grift off of the 'Big Lie' that the election was stolen from him in 2020. It was not stolen from him.'
The former lawyer believes that Trump is using the possibility of campaigning to continue to complain about his belief that the election was stolen.
