As former President Trump arrived in New York City ahead of his expected arraignment, Americans outside Trump Tower shared their mixed reactions to his indictment.
Some, like Alan from the Bronx, believe that the government is trying to prevent Trump from being elected again, and that the indictment is politically motivated. However, Bill thinks that Trump will receive a fair trial and be convicted.
Taysha from New York thinks that the focus should be on other crimes, while Rick, a 34-year New Yorker, believes that Trump is guilty and won’t get a fair trial anywhere.
Despite the charges, Trump denies having sexual relations with porn star Stormy Daniels and falsifying business records to conceal the payment. He is expected to plead not guilty to the charges related to the hush money payments.
