Trump Stands Firm: Ready to Go to Jail for Free Speech Rights

In defense of his right to free expression, Donald Trump declared on Saturday that he would “gladly” go to jail. However, it seemed that he would not go far enough. A New York judge had established a red line.

In the so-called New York hush money criminal case, Trump is prohibited from speaking publicly about any parties other than the court, including witnesses, jurors, and prosecutors. This is due to a restricted gag order.

Though they did not disparage witnesses or other court employees, the missives were scathing and personal in their criticism of presiding Judge Juan Merchan, Judge Arthur Engoron of the civil fraud case against Trump and his company, and federal Judge Lewis Kaplan, who oversaw a civil defamation lawsuit against Trump.

“If this Partisan Hack wants to put me in the “clink” for speaking the open and obvious TRUTH, I will gladly become a modern day Nelson Mandela — It will be my GREAT HONOR,” trump stated.

Harris-Biden 2024 On Saturday afternoon, Jasmine Harris, the Director of Black Media, attacked Trump’s analogy to the illustrious human rights advocate from South Africa.

“Imagine being so self-centered that you compare yourself to Jesus Christ and Nelson Mandela all within the span of little more than a week: that’s Donald Trump for you,” Harris stated.

The posts were made a few hours before a Saturday night fundraiser at hedge fund expert John Paulson’s Palm Beach home, where the Trump campaign was hoping to raise close to $50 million.

A super-wealthy group of people, including former Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Palm Beach County sugar tycoon Jose “Pepe” Fanjul, are present.

The Washington Post has stated that a gift of $814,600 will secure a seat at Trump’s table. The price of admittance for the invitation is $250,000.

The campaign of President Joe Biden announced on Saturday that it has raised over $187 million in the first quarter of 2024, with over $90 million of that amount coming in just the last month.
