Trump: ‘Hush Money’ Trial Was ‘Very Hard’ on Melania

President Donald Trump shared his wife Melania’s reaction to his so-called “hush money” trial in New York.

In a new interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump said the sordid spectacle was “very hard” on his family, especially Melania and their 18-year-old son Barron.

Trump shared the comments in his first full-fledged interview since being branded a “convicted felon” in the polarizing case.

The trial has been dismissed by Trump and his supporters as a political witch hunt.

The salacious trial included testimony from adult star Stormy Daniels, who described her alleged sexual encounter with Trump in graphic detail.

The wild statements she made on the witness stand were unrelated to the alleged business fraud charge, however.

While the Democrat judge permitted Daniels to share unrelated, salacious, prejudicial testimony, Trump was placed under a “gag order.”

“And I’m not even allowed to defend myself,” he added.

“Because of a gag order. Think of it.

“But they put this stuff in to create havoc.

“These are bad people,” he said of the Democrats behind the case.

“I know everything they’re doing.

“I know every move they make.”

Despite his anger with the trial, Trump said it has been “tougher on my family.”

“She’s fine, but I think it’s very hard for her,” he said of Melania.

“She’s fine. But she has to read all this cr*p,” he said.

Speculation has surrounded Melania’s reaction.

The former first lady was absent from court and has yet to share a response to her husband’s guilty verdict.

“I have a wonderful wife who has to listen to this stuff all the time,” Trump said.

“They do that for this reason.

“They do that – all these salacious names that they put in of these people.”

Trump also shared praise for his only child with Melania, 18-year-old Barron Trump.

“He’s tall, good-looking, he’s a very good student,” he said.

“He’s applied to colleges and gets into everywhere he goes, you know?

“He’s very sought after from the standpoint.

“He’s a very smart guy.”

Trump is due to be sentenced on July 11, days before the Republican National Convention.

He told Fox that he would be “ok” with going to prison.

“I think it would be tough for the public to take,” he said.

“You know, at a certain point there’s a breaking point.”

WATCH:

Trump’s lawyers have vowed to appeal, citing Daniels’ salacious testimony and other issues that prevented Trump from receiving a fair trial.

Despite her silence, Melania shares her husband’s anger with the trial which she views as a “political assassination,” sources told People.
