Recap on the key takeaways from the first day of the Trump hush money trial

·1 min

Former President Donald Trump appeared in court on the first day of ‘The People of the State of New York vs Donald Trump’ trial. The difficulty of selecting a jury became evident as more than half of the prospective jurors were dismissed for expressing doubts about their impartiality. The defense’s strategy is to prolong the trial, with the goal of appealing any issues that may arise. Prosecutors accused Trump of violating a gag order, and a hearing has been scheduled to address the matter. The court ruled that certain evidence, including the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape, cannot be presented, but an actress alleging an affair with Trump will be allowed to testify.
