The law, something that the defendant disregards, only permits a $1000 fine and/or up to 30 days confinement. The defendant wants to go to jail so he can milk his base for a huge free money payout.
You assume that he acts rationally. However, it may be character traits from his youth that trigger compulsive actions. His immediate surroundings, the people around him... the threat of gagging orders may are not even present to him. I want to say: He may not be able to do otherwise. Trump is like that.

If he was unable to control himself then he would be found not guilty by reason of insanity. If he were that deranged I suspect he would fly off the handle in front of the Judge who would order a psychological examination. No he is crazy like a fox and is posturing for more rounds of begging. The showman PT Barnum said it best.

Trump Threatened With New Investigation.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, has threatened former President Donald Trump with a new investigation into his reported promises to Big Oil.

The Washington Post reported this week of a deal that Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, reportedly offered to top oil executives at a Mar-a-Lago dinner last month—raise $1 billion for his campaign and he will reverse dozens of President Joe Biden's environmental regulations and prevent new rules, according to people with knowledge of the dinner.

According to the Post's sources, Trump said gifting him $1 billion would be a "deal," because of the taxation and regulations they wouldn't have to worry about if he was in office.

Whitehouse, who has already been looking into Big Oil as chair of the Senate Budget Committee, told The New Republic in an article published on Saturday, that it's "highly likely" that his committee will look into the reported revelations from Trump's Mar-a-Lago dinner with oil executives.......

It has also been revealed that Donny double-dipped his tax losses.

Report: Trump may face a $100 million-plus tax bill if he loses IRS audit fight over Chicago tower
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump may face an IRS bill in excess of $100 million after a government audit indicates he double-dipped on tax losses tied to a Chicago skyscraper, according to a report by The New York Times and ProPublica that drew on a years long audit and public filings.

The report’s findings could put renewed focus on Trump’s business career as the presumptive Republican nominee tries to regain the White House after losing in 2020.

Trump used his cachet as a real estate developer and TV star to build a political movement, yet he has refused to release his tax filings as past presidential candidates have. The tax filings that the public does know about have come from past reporting by the Times and a public release of records by Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee in 2022.

https://www.propublica.org/article/trump-irs-audit-chicago-hotel-taxes
Former President Donald Trump used a dubious accounting maneuver to claim improper tax breaks from his troubled Chicago tower, according to an IRS inquiry uncovered by ProPublica and The New York Times.
But when Trump sought to reap tax benefits from his losses, the IRS has argued, he went too far and in effect wrote off the same losses twice.
The first write-off came on Trump’s tax return for 2008. With sales lagging far behind projections, he claimed that his investment in the condo-hotel tower met the tax code definition of “worthless,” because his debt on the project meant he would never see a profit. That move resulted in Trump reporting losses as high as $651 million for the year, ProPublica and the Times found.
There is no indication the IRS challenged that initial claim, though that lack of scrutiny surprised tax experts consulted for this article. But in 2010, Trump and his tax advisers sought to extract further benefits from the Chicago project, executing a maneuver that would draw years of inquiry from the IRS. First, he shifted the company that owned the tower into a new partnership. Because he controlled both companies, it was like moving coins from one pocket to another. Then he used the shift as justification to declare $168 million in additional losses over the next decade.
Beyond the two episodes under audit, reporting by the Times in recent years has found that, across his business career, Trump has often used what experts described as highly aggressive — and at times, legally suspect — accounting maneuvers to avoid paying taxes. To the six tax experts consulted for this article, Trump’s Chicago accounting maneuvers appeared to be questionable and unlikely to withstand scrutiny.
When he filed his 2008 tax return, he declared business losses of $697 million. Tax records do not fully show which businesses generated that figure. But working with tax experts, ProPublica and the Times calculated that the Chicago worthlessness deduction could have been as high as $651 million, the value of Trump’s stake in the partnership — about $94 million he had invested and the $557 million loan balance reported on his tax returns that year.
Trump’s advisers girded for a potential audit of the worthlessness deduction from the moment they claimed it, according to the filings from the New York attorney general’s lawsuit. Starting in 2009 Trump’s team excluded the Chicago tower from the frothy annual “statements of financial condition” that Trump used to boast of his wealth, out of concern that assigning value to the building would conflict with its declared worthlessness, according to the attorney general’s filing. (Those omissions came even as Trump fraudulently inflated his net worth to qualify for low-interest loans, according to the ruling in the attorney general’s lawsuit.)
The tax experts gave the weakest chance of surviving a challenge for a worthlessness deduction based on borrowed money for which the outcome was not clear. It reflects a doubly irrational claim — that the taxpayer deserves a tax benefit for losing someone else’s money even before the money has been lost, and that those anticipated future losses can be used to offset real income from other sources. Most of the debt included in Trump’s worthlessness deduction was based on that risky position.
That the IRS did not initiate an audit of the 2008 worthlessness deduction puzzled the experts in partnership taxation. Many assumed the understaffed IRS simply had not realized what Trump had done until the deadline to investigate it had passed.

https://apnews.com/article/trump-tax-losses-audit-election-chicago-skyscraper-47729a0758e6b54aa06c075fc49c5c53
Biden has gone after Trump for not wanting to pay taxes, while his administration has increased IRS funding in order to increase audits of the ultra-wealthy and improve compliance with the federal tax code.
The Trump campaign opposes the additional funding that Biden and Democrats provided to the IRS.

Gee I wonder if these are related?

Former aide to Donald Trump reveals cruel stunt he used to pull to ‘clean up the streets’.

A former aide to Donald Trump has been smashed online after sharing a controversial video claiming he distributed fake money to homeless people who thought they were getting a win.

Johnny McEntee, 34, boasted that his stunt was actually cleaning up the community because they would be arrested and hauled off when they attempted to use counterfeit money.

The tone-deaf video received widespread criticism for being cruel and promoting illegal activities like distributing counterfeit currency, which is a federal crime in the US, regardless of the context.

“So I always keep this fake Hollywood money in my car. So when a homeless person asks for money, I give them a fake $5 bill so I feel good about myself (and) they feel good,” he said.

“And then, when they go to use it, they get arrested. So I’m actually, like, helping clean up the community, you know? Getting them off the street.”......

Donny's drunken little buddy in crime has been told.

Trump's former lawyer Giuliani stumbles in bid to appeal defamation ruling.

A U.S. bankruptcy judge on Tuesday rejected Rudy Giuliani's attempt to appeal a $148 million defamation judgment won by former Georgia election workers, saying Donald Trump's former lawyer should focus on his own stalled bankruptcy case.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane agreed with creditors, including defamed election workers Wandrea "Shaye" Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, who complained that Giuliani had made no progress on selling his assets or resolving his debts.

Giuliani must move on from the "appeal or bust" approach that he has taken since filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December, the judge said during a court hearing in White Plains, New York.

"I see it as an impediment to progress in the bankruptcy," Lane said of the proposed appeal.

Giuliani needs Lane's permission to appeal the defamation judgment because his Chapter 11 filing automatically stopped all litigation against him, including the case he lost.

Lane had previously allowed Giuliani to seek a new trial or challenge the size of the judgment awarded to Moss and Freeman, whom Giuliani had falsely accused of fraud after former Republican President Trump's defeat in the 2020 election. But after a federal judge rejected Giuliani's request in April, Lane ruled that the appeal should go no further.

Giuliani had argued that appealing the defamation judgment could potentially free up resources to pay his other creditors, including other people who have sued him.

Rachel Strickland, an attorney representing Moss and Freeman, told Lane that Giuliani should not be allowed to appeal while also using his bankruptcy to avoid paying the defamation judgment and stop other lawsuits.

"Chapter 11 isn't just a place to hide out spend all your money and wait," Strickland said.

Giuliani's WABC radio show was pulled from the airwaves on Friday due to his repeated false statements about the 2020 election, and Moss and Freeman have asked Lane to enter a court order stopping Giuliani from making more defamatory statements.

"Mr. Giuliani is going in the wrong direction in terms of being able to actually work and make money," Strickland said. "He is deliberately flouting his employer's restrictions and getting fired.".......
As Donny's trial continues.

Giuliani Complains Getting Served Indictment 'Wasn't Done Stylishly'.

After being served an indictment related to Arizona's fake electors case, Rudy Giuliani, a former lawyer to Donald Trump, criticized on Sunday the manner in which it was given to him, saying it "wasn't done stylishly."

A grand jury last month indicted 18 allies of the former president for allegedly conspiring to overturn Joe Biden's 2020 election victory in Arizona in a case brought by Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes. The 58-page indictment accuses the individuals of acting as fake electors and working to overturn the state's 2020 presidential election results. They face charges of conspiracy, fraud, and forgery.

On Friday night, Giuliani received a court summons in connection to the case as it provided Giuliani with the notice of his indictment. According to Arizona politics reporter Rachel Louise Just on X, formerly Twitter, Giuliani was served just as guests at his early 80th birthday celebration finished singing "Happy Birthday" to him......

Is Donald Trump about to win the presidential elections?

Trump Leads in 5 Key States, as Young and Nonwhite Voters Express Discontent With Biden
wrote:
The surveys by The New York Times, Siena College and The Philadelphia Inquirer found that Mr. Trump was ahead among registered voters in a head-to-head matchup against Mr. Biden in five of six key states: Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania. Mr. Biden led among registered voters in only one battleground state, Wisconsin.

The findings reveal widespread dissatisfaction with the state of the country and serious doubts about Mr. Biden’s ability to deliver major improvements to American life. A majority of voters still desire the return to normalcy promised by Mr. Biden in the last campaign, but voters in battleground states remain particularly anxious, unsettled and itching for change. Nearly 70 percent of voters say that the country’s political and economic systems need major changes — or even to be torn down entirely.

Seventy percent of voters believe that Mr. Trump will either bring major changes to the political or economic system or tear down the systems altogether, compared with 24 percent who expect the same from Mr. Biden. And while many voters express deep reservations about Mr. Trump personally, 43 percent of voters believe that he will bring good changes to the country, compared with 35 percent who think the changes will be bad.
