Trump Calls Trial Rigged, Invokes Mother Theresa’s Innocence

Daily Report May 30,2024

Moments after the jury began deliberations on former President Donald Trump’s hush money case, the former president expressed displeasure with the justice system.

Trump argued that the trial was rigged, adding that Mother Theresa wouldn’t be able to face the charges.

“These charges are rigged. The whole thing is rigged,” Trump told the reporters. “Mother Theresa could not beat these charges, but we’ll see. We’ll see how we do. It’s a very disgraceful situation.”

The former president has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records in relation to a hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election.

According to CNN, before the jury began deliberations, Judge Juan Merchan, the presiding judge over Trump’s hush money case, delivered a set of instructions to the jurors.

Merchan advised them not to be biased in their decisions. He also instructed jurors to set aside personal differences and only discuss the case when the 12 of them are together.

“The judge, as you know, is very conflicted and corrupt,” Trump said. “The whole country is a mess, between the borders and fake elections, and you have a trial like this where the judge is conflicted; he can’t breathe. He’s got to do his job.”

However, despite the trial, Trump has vowed to win the presidential election.

“We’re going to win this election. Nov. 5 is going to be the most important day in the history of our country,” Trump said. “We’re going to take back our country from these fascists and these thugs that are destroying us with inflation and with everything they do. Allowing 15,16,17 million people into our country, totally unvetted, totally unchecked. In the meantime, this trial is rigged.”

However, defense attorneys for Trump told the jury on Tuesday that the president is guilty and did not commit any crimes.

“President Trump is innocent,” Trump’s attorney Todd Blanche said. “He did not commit any crimes. The district attorney did not meet the burden of proof. Period.”
