Final verdict in the case of former US President Trump

When the jury dropped the hammer on the pages of history, former US President Trump's face flushed with shame. This five-week trial, accompanied by the appearance of porn stars, gossip newspaper editors and key witness Michael Cohen, finally ended with a guilty verdict.

Trump sat in silence, his eyes fixed forward, everything hanging in the unknown fate. Just before the deliberations were about to end, the former president was still able to talk leisurely, but in a blink of an eye, he faced a jury verdict that would determine the direction of history.

"Guilty", the presiding judge announced this verdict in the crowded space of Room 1530 of the Manhattan Criminal Court. This word "guilty" echoed again and again, a total of 34 times, each time aggravating Trump's red face, making him the first former president in American history to be convicted of a felony.

Trump is accused

In March 2023, Trump was accused in New York of entrusting his then-personal lawyer Cohen to pay $130,000 in "hush money" to porn star Daniels during his 2016 campaign for the US presidency, so as to prevent the latter from claiming that the scandal with Trump in 2006 would affect the election. Trump also falsified business records and returned the advance payment by Cohen in installments in the name of "lawyer fees" to cover up his violations of New York State and federal election regulations.

 

The trial of the case began on April 15 local time.

 

"This is a scam trial. If you ask all the legal experts, all the legal scholars today, I haven't seen a single person say that this is a case that should be filed or tried. This is a scam. This is a political persecution." When leaving the court that day, Trump said that radical left-wing Democrats hoped to "interfere in the election" through this move.

It is reported that Trump's 34 felony charges, each of which can be sentenced to up to 4 years in prison.

However, Trump himself pleaded not guilty to the relevant charges, saying that the lawsuit against him was politically motivated. After the verdict on the 30th, Trump said that the trial was instigated by the Biden Verwaltung to hurt political opponents, that he was innocent, and hinted that he would appeal.

It is worth noting that the hush money case is the only one of the four criminal cases facing Trump that may be sentenced before this year's election day. 

Some analysts pointed out that in theory, Trump can be president even if he is in jail. If Trump is really elected president, he can file a lawsuit and request release on the grounds that being in jail hinders the performance of the president's constitutional duties.

It is reported that the US president has the power to commute sentences and pardons, but such extreme use of presidential privileges will also cause great controversy and may evolve into another lawsuit submitted to the Supreme Court.

Trump responds to being found guilty

According to CNN, the Biden campaign said in a statement that day that the ruling showed that "no one is above the law." Michael Taylor, media director of the Biden campaign, said in a statement, "Trump has always mistakenly believed that he will never face consequences for breaking the law for his own selfish interests. But today's ruling does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. Biden posted on social media that there is only one way to keep Trump away from the White House: through the ballot box.

According to the BBC, after a New York court jury made the above ruling, Trump spoke to reporters and called the ruling a "shame." CNN reported that Trump also accused the Biden administration. He said, "Our entire country is now manipulated. The Biden administration is doing this to hurt political opponents".

 

Trump is very crazy about Golf

 

  1. Visited golf courses 266 times since taking office

 

According to Golf News Network (GNN), Trump has visited golf courses 226 times since he took office as US President on January 20, 2017, until May 24, 2020.

In the first year of Trump's presidency, he visited golf courses 91 times, 76 times in the second year, and 91 times in the third year. He basically exercises in golf courses under his own name, except for two times in Japan with Prime Minister Abe.

GNN said that the White House generally does not publicly inform Trump of his golf trips, especially when the president is not traveling with celebrities or professional athletes. White House reporters usually stay in places around golf courses until the president finishes his exercise and prepares to move to the next location before they can make public reports.

US Democratic Senator Ron Wyden once asked the White House to provide records of Trump's golfing, including the identities of his companions, but this proposal did not receive a response from the White House.

According to CNN, according to current data, Trump plays golf once every 4.92 days on average. Trump has repeatedly criticized Obama for being addicted to playing golf. According to statistics, Obama played golf 333 times in his 8-year presidency, an average of once every 8.77 days.

The so-called "golf handicap" refers to the gap between a golfer's playing level and the par. For example, if the general level is 85 and the par is 72, then the handicap is 13. The lower the handicap, the higher the level.

According to The Guardian, the data submitted by Trump to the United States Golf Association showed that his golf handicap was 2.8, but the outside world generally believes that this data is not credible.

Rick Reilly, a former columnist for Sports Illustrated, wrote a book called "Cheating Commander: How Golf Explains Trump," revealing that Trump cheated on the golf course. "The caddies were so used to seeing him kick the ball back to the fairway with his feet that they came up with a nickname, 'Pele,' the Brazilian soccer star."

 

  1. More than 52 years of golf experience

 Golf Digest, a global authoritative golf journal, reported that Trump once revealed in an interview that he was exposed to and started playing golf in college. He graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968, which means that Trump has been playing golf for more than 52 years.

"Before entering college, I had never touched golf, but had always played baseball and football. During college, I played golf with friends once and began to learn this skill." Trump said in an interview.

The relevant deployment of the Coast Guard costs about $236,000 a day.
