Donald Trump: Criminal trial against former US president can begin

The first criminal trial against Donald Trump will take place on April 15th in New York. Trump's attempts to delay the start again failed. The star was in the courtroom.

Rarely have you seen Donald Trump so fierce. He sat in the dock and looked sideways at his lawyer, Todd Blanche, in astonishment. Trump seemed irritated, even annoyed, by the appearance.

“No, Reverend,” Blanche stammered several times. “Yes, Reverend.” “With all due respect, Reverend. That's not what we meant. That's not what we wanted to say.”

Trump doesn't like that kind of thing. He wants fierce lawyers, guys like himself, direct, fearless, intimidating. Instead, Blanche stuttered, couldn't answer some legal questions, and was reprimanded.
