Trump Vows To Appeal Conviction

Former President Donald Trump condemned the criminal conviction by a New York jury this week during remarks on Friday. The former president made the comments as his campaign announced a major fundraising haul following the announcement.

Trump started the press conference discussing the flood of illegal immigrants entering the United States. He said that Democrats want to stop people from being able to get cars and to increase taxes “four times.”

“It’s a very serious problem that we have,” he said.

The former president said that he faced “conflicted” Judge Juan Merchan. He criticized the gag order in the case, stating that he had to pay thousands in fines for alleged violations.

“They are in total conjunction with the White House and DOJ [Department of Justice],” he added.

Trump said that “no one is allowed to write about” and he isn’t allowed to talk about the conflicts regarding the judge. He also called the trial “very unfair” and said that his legal team could not use their “election expert.”

The former president added that members of his team were “literally crucified” by the judge. He said that Merchan looked like an “angel” but acted like a “devil.”

Trump said that the trial was “rigged” and requested both a venue change and a change in judge.”

“Nobody’s ever seen anything like it,” he said.

The former president cited increasing crime in New York City, criticizing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D).

Trump said that the charges against him were improper and that the charge would normally be a misdemeanor. He added that he was accused of spending money as a “legal expense” related to money spent following an alleged brief relationship with former adult actress Stormy Daniels.

He added that he would like to testify and that even former President George Washington should not have testified. Trump believed he would not have received fair treatment from the court.

He added that he would appeal the case and sought to have the verdict overturned.
