Donald Trump Jr. defended his father, President Donald Trump, on Tuesday morning outside a New York City courtroom as the ongoing Manhattan criminal trial against the president has begun to enter its home stretch.

He was joined by other America First allies such as former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson (R), and former Deputy Assistant to President Trump Sebastian Gorka.

The president’s eldest son told the press of the “hush money” case against his father, “What it’s doing is setting a disastrous precedent for our legal system, for justice in America.”

He explained, “If it can happen to Donald Trump, and if they will try to do this to someone like Donald Trump – with a platform, hundreds of millions of followers, the ability to fight – they will do it to anyone and they’ve started to go down a very dangerous, and very slippery slope.”

Trump Jr. noted that “this insanity cannot stand – this kind of bias cannot be allowed to happen in the United States of America or anywhere else.”

He reamed the American press for failing to report fairly on the trial, which has been fraught with testimony from unreliable sources like Michael Cohen – a convicted felon and disbarred lawyer who admitted this week while on the witness stand that he had stolen money from the Trump Organization in 2016.

The entire case essentially boils down to whether reimbursement payments to Cohen, the prosecution’s star witness, from Trump’s accounting department should have been marked “legal expense” or not. Further, the alleged and unspecific crime of these payments took place in 2017 while Trump was acting as the sitting President of the United States.

Trump attorney Alina Habba recently commented on that point, noting, “And you want to show me that Donald Trump, who was sitting in the White House, had any idea about that OR that it was done incorrectly? Both things, I haven’t seen.”

Trump Jr. said that the silence on the politically charged case from the media was “deafening” and “disgusting” while he simultaneously reiterated his stance that the dubious treatment in New York “cannot be allowed to continue.”
