Trump Lashes Out at Judge Hours After He Imposed Gag Order on Ex-President

HeadlineMar 28, 2024

Donald Trump lashed out at New York Judge Juan Merchan, and the judge’s daughter, just hours after he imposed a gag order on Trump ahead of his criminal hush money trial next month. On his Truth Social platform, Trump called Judge Merchan a “hater” and accused him of being “biased and conflicted.” In response to the gag order, Trump claimed Merchan was “wrongfully attempting to deprive me of my First Amendment Right to speak out against the Weaponization of Law Enforcement.” The gag order does not technically shield Merchan from public statements by Trump.
