Donald Trump Claims ‘Record Levels Of Terrorists’ Entered The U.S.


Following his historic guilty verdict, former President Donald Trump held a press conference on Friday to address the hush-money trial.

After over nine hours of deliberation spanning two days, the Manhattan jury convicted the former President of fabricating business records in relation to a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign.

In addition to slamming the jury for his conviction, Donald Trump also took aim at the “record levels of terrorists” entering the nation.

Inside Donald Trump’s Hush-Money Trial


Donald Trump was on trial after he was accused of giving out “hush money” regarding an alleged sexual encounter he had with adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016.

Both Cohen and Daniels testified that the money was sent as a way to prevent her from telling media outlets that she had sex with Trump one time in 2006. He was found guilty on all 34 charges.

“I am a very innocent man,” Trump said outside the courthouse on Thursday. “This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt.”

“The real verdict is going to be November 5 by the people, and they know what happened here, and everybody knows what happened here,” he added.

Donald Trump Found Guilty On All 34 Counts

The falsifying business records charges carry up to four years behind bars for each of the 34 felony counts he was convicted of — totaling a maximum prison sentence of 136 years. However, New York caps its prison sentences at 20 years.

Despite facing jail time, legal experts say it’s unlikely that Trump will go to prison because he does not have a criminal record.

He also faces a fine of up to $5,000.

Shortly after the verdict was read, Donald Trump said he would appeal.

And, just like in the past, Trump once again claimed that Chinese migrants are arriving in the U.S. to build an army, saying 29,000 have arrived in the last few months.

According to the Associated Press, the count of non-nationals on the terrorist watch list has risen, yet federal immigration authorities assert that they “are very uncommon.”

This Isn’t The First Time…

Friday was by far the first time the former President Donald Trump took aim at the “terrorists” in the United States.

In 2015, he claimed he would kill the families of terrorists if that’s what it took to win the fight against ISIS.

“The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives; don’t kid yourself. When they say they don’t care about their lives, you have to take out their families,” Trump said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”

He added that he would “knock the hell out of” ISIS.

Just moments after the jury read the guilty verdict, Donald Trump spoke to the press outside of the courthouse.

“Our whole country is being rigged right now. This was done by the Biden administration in order to wound, to hurt an opponent. A political opponent,” he said. “And I think it’s just a disgrace, and we’ll keep fighting, we’ll fight till the end, and we’ll win because our country has gone to hell. We don’t have the same country anymore, we have a divided mess.”

He continued, “We are a nation in decline, serious decline of people pouring into our country right now. From prisons and from mental institutions. Terrorists and they’re taking over our country. We have a country that’s in big trouble, but this was a rigged decision right from day one, with a conflicted judge who should have never been allowed to try this case. Never!”

Donald Trump Jr. also spoke out, claiming, “It’s just a sad day for America” and “Obviously (no one was) probably expecting anything different with this jury, with this biased judge, whose daughter is profiteering from this stuff.”

Trump’s sentencing has been scheduled for July 11, 2024.
