Donald Trump Walks Into Trial: 'Political Persecution...Honored to Be Here' | 15 April 2024 | "This is really an attack on a political opponent," former President Donald Trump said about his criminal trial before entering a New York courtroom on Monday. The trial is the first criminal trial of a president. Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged Trump with 34 felonies, accusing him of falsifying documents to conceal a sex scandal. Trump could face jail time if convicted. "Nothing like this has ever happened before," Trump told reporters. "There is no case and they've [legal experts] said that -- people that don't necessarily follow or like Donald Trump. This case was brought as political persecution," Trump continued. "This is a persecution like never before."
