11. I wouldn't put it past the court to remand Trump directly into custody

Courts give convicted criminals a certain amount of time before sentencing to get their affairs in order - arrange for the care of their families, store their property, purge the child pornography the cops haven't found yet from their computers, things like that. Because Trump runs an LLC that handles his personal affairs, that time won't be necessary.

There are two other reasons - better ones - for Trump to go straight to prison.

Donald Trump owns a Cessna Citation X. What you need to know about a Citation X is that it'll fly 3600 miles on one tank of fuel, and it can land on VERY small airstrips - small enough that if you turn off your ADSB system and transponders so ATC radar can't track you, flying to just about any general aviation field on earth is possible. Once you leave the US, your general aviation fields are going to have the proper fuel for this aircraft.

He also has a large contingent of very rabid fans who would hide him in Ammon Bundy's house because they know the cops refuse to go out there.
