Since his arraignment, Donald Trump has been vocal about his opposition to the US justice system. After the court hearing, Trump gave a speech at his Florida home, where he declared that the US justice system has become “lawless”.
“The United States justice system is now officially lawless,” said Trump. “Our nation is going to hell. We are witnessing a total breakdown of law and order, where politically motivated prosecutions are happening to those who dare to speak out against the current administration.”
Trump went on to condemn the US justice system for its lack of fairness and due process. He argued that the US justice system has become so politicized that it is now only used to target those who are vulnerable and who cannot afford high-priced lawyers.

“The US justice system has become so politicized that it is now only used to target those who cannot afford high-priced lawyers,” said Trump. “The system has become so skewed in favor of the power that it is no longer about justice but about protecting the interests of the powerful and their cronies.”
Trump then went on to point out that the US justice system is failing to protect the rights of those who are weaker and disadvantaged. He argued that the system should be more balanced and that those who are unable to afford legal representation should be given a fair shake.

The prosecutor has laid out a clear case against Donald Trump, accusing him of falsifying New York business records in order to hide an illegal conspiracy to undermine the integrity of the 2016 US presidential election.
