Trump Condemns Unfair Trial as a Dark Mark on New York Justice

Former president pledges to fight back after contentious verdict.

Former President Donald Trump, who is also the likely Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential elections, voiced strong criticisms against the New York justice system following a guilty verdict on all 34 counts of falsifying business records. The verdict came after a two-day deliberation by the jury, concluding a lengthy investigation led by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office since 2022 under DA Alvin Bragg.

In a poignant discussion with Fox News Digital, Trump expressed his dismay, stating, “It’s a sad day for New York and a sad day for the country.” He described the trial as “rigged from day one,” from the choice of venue to the presiding judge. According to Trump, the location of the trial in Lower Manhattan negatively impacted the fairness of the proceedings, claiming, “We couldn’t get a fair trial.”

Highlighting the alleged conflicts involving Judge Juan Merchan, Trump pointed out the systemic issues he perceives in the trial, remarking on the judge’s reluctance to accommodate fair trial conditions by stating, “He just says no to everything. This guy never said yes to anything.”

Despite the legal battles, Trump’s return to Trump Tower was met with enthusiastic support, with thousands greeting him, a testament to his undiminished backing amidst adversity. He remains steadfast, stating, “I’ve never had support like I have now,” and signaling his intent to continue his political campaign vigorously.

Trump also criticized DA Alvin Bragg, describing him as “a corrupt, Soros-backed DA,” underscoring his concerns about the broader implications of his prosecution on the justice system and political landscape.

As the sentencing date approaches on July 11, shortly before the Republican National Convention, Trump’s camp remains defiant. Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt highlighted his resilience, stating that despite the grueling schedule of the trial, Trump managed to lead over Biden in polls, generate significant media coverage, and engage vigorously on the campaign trail.

Trump’s resolve is clear as he looks ahead to the election, underscoring November 5th as “the most important day in the history of our country.” His determination reflects his readiness to return to the forefront of American politics, challenging his adversaries and advocating for what he believes is a crucial fight for the nation’s future.
