‘I’ll appeal’ – Donald Trump speaks on hush-money conviction


Former United States President Donald Trump has vowed to appeal after a jury in New York found him guilty on all 34 charges of falsifying business records to hide a hush-money payment meant to silence porn star Stormy Daniels.

The 45th President of the US disclosed this on Friday at a press conference in the upscale lobby of his signature Trump Tower property in Manhattan.

He described his sentence as very “unfair.”

The 77-year-old Republican, who is neck and neck with President Joe Biden in the 2024 White House race, confirmed he would appeal.

“We’re going to be appealing this scam,” he said.

Saga Gist reports a jury found Trump guilty of hiding a hush money payment meant to silence porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump faces a potential prison sentence but is much more likely to receive probation.

Merchan set sentencing for July 11 — four days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where Trump is due to receive the party’s formal nomination.

The development comes after CNN polls announced that he is beating President Joe Biden to maintain the lead.

President Biden, reacting to the conviction, urged voters not to elect Trump in the next presidential election.
