Trump calls verdict in sex abuse case ‘shameful’

Trump called the New York jury’s decision to find him guilty of sexual assault a “disgrace”.


Donald Trump on Tuesday criticized a New York jury’s finding of a former magazine writer guilty of sexual assault and defamation as a “disgrace” and insisted she was the subject of a “witch hunt”.

“This verdict is a disgrace – continuation of the biggest witch hunt ever,” the former president posted on his Truth social media platform, using all capital letters.

“I have absolutely no idea who this woman is,” he added, in reference to E. Jean Carroll, who had filed a lawsuit against him.
