“But the good news is that people understand that our poll numbers are the highest they’ve ever been,” he said.

“It’s ridiculous that I’m not going to be out campaigning for another week.”

Trump did not mince words towards those who are targeting him in the hush-money case, including Judge Merchan, calling them as “corrupt thugs.”
