Donald Trump, the ex-President, seemed displeased with the jury instructions provided by Judge Juan Merchan of New York County on Thursday morning.

“Mother Teresa could not beat these charges, but we’ll see. We’ll see how we do. It’s a very disgraceful situation,” Trump told reporters. “These charges are rigged. The whole thing is rigged,” he added.

“We’re going to take back our country from these fascists and these thugs that are destroying us with inflation and with everything they do,” Trump continued, “allowing 15, 16, 17 million people into our country, totally unvetted, totally unchecked.”

“We’re going to bring back our nation,” Trump vowed. “November 5. Remember, most important day in the history of our country.”

“In the meantime, this trial is rigged,” he said.
