Former President Donald Trump says he would "absolutely" take the stand in his upcoming trials, saying he looks "forward" to doing so.

During an interview on Hugh Hewitt's radio show Wednesday morning, the 2024 Republican front-runner was asked if he would testify in his own defense at any of the trials stemming from the four separate indictments he faces.

"Oh yes, absolutely. That, I would do.  That, I look forward to," he said. "At trial, I'll testify."

The former president said he has no problem testifying because he has nothing to hide.

"I'm not worried about anything. If I worried, I would be sitting in a corner someplace and saying 'Mommy, take me home.' I don't worry about anything," he said.

Trump is the first former U.S. president to face criminal charges. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges in all three jurisdictions.

As for the charges, Trump says he won't have trouble beating them because "it's all just fake stuff."

"They made it up in order to interfere with the election," he said. "You know how many cases they're suing me on? This is election interference. They want to make it so busy, and they want to also cost me a lot of money so I can't take it."

In total, the former president is fighting 91 criminal charges. He faces 34 counts in his Manhattan hush-money case, 40 in his classified documents case, four in his election subversion case, and 13 in the Georgia election meddling case.

"What they've done is so corrupt, and nobody's ever seen, and we're asking for dismissals," Trump continued. "We will be asking for virtually dismissals of most of it. And the public agrees with it, and the public agrees with me. These are -- this is a disgrace to our country."
