'The gag order has to come off': Trump slams gag order in Alvin Bragg's falsified docs case

"People are allowed to speak about me and I have a gag order, just to show you how much more unfair it is."

Speaking ahead of Friday morning’s court session in Manhattan District Attorney Alivn Bragg’s falsified business documents case, Donald Trump criticized the "rigged" trial brought against him and the "unfair" gag order placed on him by Judge Juan Merchan. 

"As you know, I’ve been saying for a long while this is a rigged trial, it’s coming from the White House," Trump began. "They have White House, DOJ people in the trial, in the DA’s office, representing the DA because he’s probably not smart enough to represent himself." 

Trump said that Bragg got elected "using Trump," like New York Attorney General Letitia James.  

"New York is going down as a very corrupt place to do business," he said, adding that "a lot of people are not going to be moving to New York." 

"But this is a rigged case, and this is a case that was put in very strongly because of politics. So instead of being in Pennsylvania or Georgia or North Carolina or a lot of other places today, I’m sitting at a courthouse all day long. This is going on for the week and will go on for another four or five weeks, and it’s very unfair. People know it’s unfair." 

Trump targeted the gag order placed on him by Merchan, saying "the gag order has to come off."  

"People are allowed to speak about me and I have a gag order, just to show you how much more unfair it is." 

He also said that Merchan "has a conflict, the worst I’ve ever seen, and it has to end with the judge." 

"The gag order has to come off, I should be allowed to speak. Every time I come out to speak to you, I want to be open because we did absolutely nothing wrong," he said, adding that when he spoke to reporters on Thursday, he came with over 30 stories from legal experts "saying very strongly, there’s no case in this occasion or Trump did nothing wrong." 

"They’ve taken away my constitutional rights to speak and that includes speaking to you. I have a lot to say to you and I’m not allowed to say it and I’m the only one, everyone else can say whatever they want about me."
