How Famous Celebrities Reacted To Donald Trump’s Guilty Verdict

The Former President of the USA, Donald Trump, who weeks ago chose not to testify in the Hush Money Trial is now a convicted criminal. The American politician, who was advised by his legal experts not to stand up in court as a witness in the case of hiding a hush money payment of $130,000 made to Stormy Daniels, has finally been found guilty.

He allegedly made the payment to prevent adult film star, Stormy Daniels from publicly disclosing their alleged sexual encounters to the public during Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign for the presidency.

On Thursday, the Manhattan jury found him guilty of all the 34 charges that were made against him in connection to falsifying business records. During this time, Trump was seated between his attorneys, Todd Blanche and Emil Bove, completely still and showed no reaction. The trial for the case took seven weeks to get disposed of. The verdict which came on 30th May 2024, made him the first-ever former President of the USA to be convicted of a criminal offense.

After the court’s judgment, Trump now faces a tense period as he awaits his sentencing. There is a possibility that he could be fined or he might even receive a prison sentence that could last up to four years in total. But this will be ultimately decided on the upcoming court date which had been set as 11th July 2024.
