The trial of former US President Donald Trump in a criminal case began in New York yesterday, Monday, making him the first president in the history of the United States to appear before a criminal court during which he faces charges related to paying money to a pornographic film actress to buy her silence and not disclosing his relationship with her.

At the conclusion of his first trial session, Trump questioned the integrity of Judge Juan Merchan, who was assigned to preside over his trial sessions.

In that case, Trump unsuccessfully sought to force Merchan to step down, arguing that he faced a conflict of interest because the judge’s daughter worked for Democratic politicians.

“We will not be given a fair trial,” the former president told reporters outside the court in Manhattan, adding, “We have a real problem with this judge.”
