President Trump found himself at the center of controversy on Monday during the first day of the Stormy Daniels ‘hush money’ trial in Manhattan. The courtroom was abuzz with jury selection for Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s legal battle against Trump over alleged ‘hush payments’ to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Despite objections, Judge Juan Merchan presided over the proceedings and issued a stern warning to President Trump that he could face jail time if he failed to appear in court. Merchan emphasized the importance of Trump’s presence during the trial and hinted at the possibility of a warrant for his arrest if he did not comply.
