The world was rocked after former President Donald Trump was found guilty on 34 felony charges for falsifying business records.

The jury of seven men and five women at Manhattan Criminal Court deliberated for nearly 10 hours before convicting the former president.

It was the first time a former U.S. President has faced a criminal trial and the verdict could upend the 2024 White House race, proving a pivotal moment in the history of the United States.

Trump campaign warns Biden to ‘buckle up’ as he hits the campaign trail

Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt has a message for Biden:

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.

Now that he is fully back on the campaign trial, Biden and the Democrats better buckle up.

Donald Trump squandered a ‘winnable case’ where he could have got a hung jury or escaped with only a misdemeanor, legal experts have argued.

The former president was found guilty by a jury of 34 counts of falsifying business records in the so-called ‘hush money’ trial in New York.

Veteran lawyers argue District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case had weaknesses – despite 200 pieces of evidence and weeks of witness testimony.

But Trump’s lawyers failed to exploit them, confusing the jury by fighting every aspect of the indictment and refusing to offer the option of a lesser charge.

Bill O’Reilly has said president Joe Biden should pardon his son Hunter and Donald Trump in order to heal the nation.

‘President Biden should pardon Donald Trump of any and all crimes and suggest publicly that governor [Kathy] Hochul do the same thing,’ O’Reilly told Chris Cuomo.

‘And then … President Biden should pardon his son Hunter. That would throw the whole acrimonious system into absolute chaos.’

O’Reilly said that while Biden could ‘bring down the level of hatred… he won’t, because he doesn’t have the “fiber” of Gerald Ford.’

Key takeaways from the day where Donald Trump was found guilty on 34 felony counts

Trump will face sentencing on July 11, just four days before the beginning of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where the party is set to nominate Trump for President a third time.

Here are some of the key takeaways from Thursday’s trial.
