Trump on Trial

'DEMS v. AMERICA!': Trump Addresses Media Outside NYC Trial, 'Gag Order Has to Come Off' [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.14.24

Donald Trump spoke with members of the press outside the New York City courthouse Tuesday morning before kicking off another day of his hush money criminal case.

Trump started by blasting hypcrite Biden for reports of his China tariffs; “It should have been done three and a half years ago.”

“They’ve also got to do it on other vehicles and they have to do it on a lot of other products,” he told reporters as he entered court for his hush money trial in New York. “Because China’s eating our lunch right now. … They have to do it on much more than electric vehicles.”

Trump reviewed the latest polls showing him up on Joe in most battleground states before reading words of support from op-eds in the media.

Trump is accompanied by supportes Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, Florida Rep. Byron Donalds, former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.

Ramaswamy shared the following post on X, blasting the “sham trial.”

This sham trial is a politically motivated assault on the leading candidate for U.S. President, green lit by his political opponent, Joe Biden, and carried out at the highest levels of the White House and Department of Justice. Joe Biden’s former number #3 at the Department Justice, Matthew Colangelo, is now leading the prosecution effort for Bragg, who himself ran for office on the promise of going after Trump. It’s an insult to American democracy. No one has a clue what the alleged crime even is. The irony here is that the crime is supposedly about bad bookkeeping, but the real bookkeeping scandal is how to account for Judge Merchan’s own family members being paid millions of dollars by Democratic operatives. His entire legal theory depends on the ludicrous idea that Trump should have used campaign funds for a personal payment, yet if Trump had done that, they’d be prosecuting him for it – which is the ultimate proof that this is a politicized persecution. The American people will deliver the ultimate verdict in November: say NO to the weaponization of justice.
