Trump is famous for being vocal about his opinions, even if they are unpopular with most people. The Blast reported that he wasted no time addressing his guilty verdict in a lengthy statement, venting his emotions about the jury's decision.

As stated, Trump is the first president in U.S. history to be convicted of a crime after a jury found him guilty of 34 counts of felony in his hush money trial. However, the politician declared he wouldn't back down without a fight.

"Our whole country is being rigged right now. This was done by the Biden administration in order to wound, to hurt an opponent. A political opponent," Trump told the press outside the courtroom, adding:

The former president vehemently denied his guilt in the hush money case and blamed his conviction on the poor state of the country and its legal system. In Trump's words:

"We are a nation in decline, serious decline of people pouring into our country right now. From prisons and from mental institutions. Terrorists, and they're taking over our country."

He continued: "We have a country that's in big trouble, but this was a rigged decision right from day one. With a conflicted judge who should have never been allowed to try this case, never."

Trump seemingly implied that his lawyers would appeal the case, saying: "We will fight for our constitution.This is more from over. Thank you very much."

Donald Trump May Face Up To Four Years In Prison

Former President Donald Trump leaves Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue on his way to Federal Court for the ongoing defamation trial brought by E.Jean Carroll in lower Manhattan. Today there will be the closing statements.

The hush money trial garnered much attention, given the severe allegations against Trump. He was accused of falsifying business records in payments made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The case featured several dramatic moments, including multiple outbursts from Trump, about the gag order placed on him at the start of the criminal trial. He also refused to testify, claiming he didn't need to because the prosecution "had no case."

Now, Trump is facing up to four years in prison for all 34 counts against him. However, as a first-time offender, the billionaire mogul could be given a lighter sentence.

The outcome of Trump's punishment will be unveiled at his sentencing hearing on July 11, 2024.
