Donald Trump: How the jury for his trial will be chosen

The selection of the jury that will decide the guilt or innocence of Donald Trump in the coming weeks begins on Monday. In New York, which is heavily democratic, it is likely to be a political spectacle.

For some, the job description sounds terrible. For the others, perhaps the greatest thing they will ever experience. Four days a week, twelve women and men will sit on leather-upholstered chairs in room 1530 on the 15th floor of the New York County Supreme Court – for up to eight weeks. Just sit there, listen and say nothing. They are not allowed to talk to anyone about the case or read anything about it in the news or on social networks. And perhaps the biggest challenge: Whatever they think about Donald Trump – whether positive or negative – they should ignore it.
