BREAKING: Trump SLAMS Judge Merchan's 'unconstitutional' gag order

"I’m not allowed to talk but people are allowed to talk about me."

Speaking after Tuesday’s hearing of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s falsified business records case, Trump criticized the gag order placed on him that was at the center of a contempt hearing before the trial began in the morning. 

"I think the gag order is totally unconstitutional," Trump told reporters after the hearing ended for the day. 

"I’m not allowed to talk but people are allowed to talk about me. So, they can talk about me, they can say whatever they want, they can lie, but I’m not allowed to say anything, I just have to sit back and look at why a conflicted judge has ordered me to have a gag order. I don’t think anybody’s ever seen anything like this." 

Noting the alleged violations of the gag order, Trump said regarding reposts that came into question during the Tuesday morning hearing, "I can’t read the whole thing, I’d be reading this like reading a novel. So, I put an article in and somebody’s name is mentioned somewhere deep in the article and I end up in violation of the gag order. I think it’s a disgrace." 

Trump later added, "this trial is all Biden in case anybody has any question and they're keeping me in a courtroom, that’s freezing by the way, in a courtroom all day long while he’s out campaigning. That’s probably an advantage because he can’t campaign, nobody knows what he’s doing, he can’t put two sentences together."

"BHe’s out campaigning, and I’m here in the courtroom sitting here, sitting up as straight as I can all day long because, you know, it’s a very unfair situation. So we're locked up in a courtroom, but this guy's out there campaigning, if you call it campaigning."

A contempt hearing was held on Tuesday morning regarding 10 alleged violations of the gag order put into place by Judge Juan Merchan. Prosecutors have urged Merchan fine Trump $10,000 for the violations, $1,000 for each. 

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
