Trump Stunned by 'Amazing Testimony' During Hush Money Trial, Says It Was 'Breathtaking'

In the midst of a heated legal battle surrounding the gag order imposed on former President Donald Trump during his ongoing trial in New York City, Trump expressed optimism about the day's proceedings as he exited the court on Thursday.

The hearing on Thursday centered on accusations from prosecutors that Trump violated the gag order prohibiting him from discussing witnesses and other trial-related matters in recent statements, as reported by CNN.

Trump is facing 34 counts of first-degree falsifying business records, which Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is prosecuting as felonies.

While the case originates from allegations by porn star Stormy Daniels regarding an affair with Trump, which he has denied, former federal prosecutor Ankush Khardori explained that the criminal charges pertain to how payments to Daniels were recorded within the Trump Organization's financial records.

During Thursday's proceedings, former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker testified that the magazine acquired rights to numerous stories, not solely those involving Daniels' claims about Trump, as noted by the New York Post.

Following the conclusion of court proceedings, Trump characterized the day as "breathtaking" and "amazing," without elaborating further on the specifics of his statement. However, he asserted that the trial should never have occurred and urged observers to remain vigilant, transitioning to broader concerns about the country.

The following day, Trump's tone shifted, dismissing the trial as a political ploy by the Biden administration to influence elections. He raised concerns about the economy, oil prices, and the closure of college campuses, while expressing confidence in his poll numbers.

Additionally, Trump took to Truth Social to criticize the gag order imposed by Judge Juan Merchan, describing it as unprecedented and unconstitutional. He called for the immediate lifting of the gag order to allow him to exercise his constitutional right to free speech, warning of a "rigged election" if his request is denied.
