‘Whole thing is a mess’: Trump hits out at hush money trial after jury selected

US

Donald Trump described the hush money case against him as a “mess” after all 12 of the jurors who will decide his fate were selected.

Leaving the court in New York after proceedings were adjourned for the third day, Trump addressed reporters, saying he was supposed to be in states like Georgia, New Hampshire and North Carolina as part of his campaign for the 2024 presidential election.

“[But instead] I’ve been here all day,” he said, labelling the trial as “unfair”.

Trump held up a stack of news stories and editorials that he said were critical of the case. He continued railing against the trial.

“The whole thing is a mess,” he said.

It comes as all 12 jurors have been seated in the first criminal case against a former US president.

Members of the jury include a sales professional, a software engineer, an English teacher and multiple lawyers.
