Despite the guilty verdict in the “hush money” witch hunt, Donald Trump is prepared to hit the campaign trail harder than before.

In fact, Trump’s campaign warned Joe Biden to “buckle up” since Trump is free of the New York City courtroom following a six-week trial.

Per Fox News:

Judge Juan Merchan, who presided over the case, said Trump was required to be in court every day for the trial, except Wednesdays when court was not in session.

The former president railed against the judge and Democrats daily for confining him to the courtroom, repeatedly telling reporters and supporters it was “freezing” and like being stuck in a “freezing cold icebox.”

“Crooked Joe Biden and the Democrats confined President Trump to a courtroom for more than eight hours a day for more than six weeks, and he’s still winning,” Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt told Fox News Digital. “Now that he is fully back on the campaign trail, Biden and the Democrats better buckle up.”

Leavitt told Fox News Digital that Trump “generated billions of dollars in earned media coverage throughout the trial, hosted massive rallies and impromptu campaign stops in New York and beyond, increased his lead over crooked Joe Biden in the polls and raised more money than Biden and the Democrats in the month of April. Not even a witch hunt trial could slow him down. In fact, it only made him stronger.”

Trump will hit the campaign trail fresh off $34.8 million in donations following the guilty verdict.

“From just minutes after the sham trial verdict was announced, our digital fundraising system was overwhelmed with support, and despite temporary delays online because of the amount of traffic, President Trump raised $34.8 million dollars from small-dollar donors,” Trump’s campaign advisor Chris LaCivita wrote.


From the New York Post:

It comes after a sour-looking Trump slammed the trial as “rigged” and “disgraceful” after the Manhattan jury found him guilty on all 34 counts Thursday.

“The real verdict will be Nov. 5 by the people … I’m a very innocent man,” he said as he left the courtroom, blaming the ordeal on Biden, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and the judge who oversaw the trial.

“I’m fighting for our country, I’m fighting for our Constitution,” Trump said. “We’re a nation in decline.”

Trump also accused Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan of being “conflicted” and “corrupt,” claiming his decision not to grant Trump’s bid for a venue change outside Manhattan — a district that overwhelmingly polls in Biden’s favor — directly led to the guilty verdict.

“Our whole country is being rigged right now. This was done by the Biden administration in order to vote to wound or hurt an opponent, a political opponent. And I think it’s just a disgrace,” Trump said.

His remarks came just minutes after he launched a fundraising memo on his Truth Social page, calling himself a “political prisoner.”
