Trump Permitted to Attend Barron’s Graduation

Judge Juan Merchan has permitted Donald Trump to attend the high school graduation of his son, Barron.

“I don’t think the May 17 date is a problem,” Merchan told the court.

The judge previously recognized Trump’s request to attend the graduation but delayed his decision on the matter.

Merchan said at the time that Trump’s attendance at Barron’s graduation “really depends on if we are on time and where we are in the trial.”

Trump wrote on Truth Social in response to the judge, “Who will explain for me, to my wonderful son, Barron, who is a GREAT Student at a fantastic School, that his Dad will likely not be allowed to attend his Graduation Ceremony, something that we have been talking about for years, because a seriously Conflicted and Corrupt New York State Judge wants me in Criminal Court on a bogus ‘Biden Case’ which, according to virtually all Legal Scholars and Pundits, has no merit, and should NEVER have been brought.”

“This Fake Case is solely meant to attack Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, ME, who is seriously leading him in the Polls, for purposes of Election Interference. The Judge, Juan Merchan, is preventing me from proudly attending my son’s Graduation,” Trump continued. “Seems very unfair, doesn’t it? But this whole event is unfair. Every one of the many Fake Cases that are perpetuated by the White House in order to help the Worst President in History, by far, get Re-Elected, are UNJUST SCAMS. We won’t let that happen, but we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Although Merchan permitted Trump to attend his son’s graduation, he also held Trump in criminal contempt and threatened him with jail time.

Merchan found Trump to be violating a gag order due to his social media posts.

Trump was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine for “each of the nine violations,” the court document read.
