2024 ELECTION/LEGAL: “Donald Trump will face a criminal trial in New York on March 25, 2024, a judge said on Tuesday [May 23, 2023], meaning the former U.S. President will be on trial as his campaign for the 2024 Republican nomination is in full swing.

Trump, who is charged with falsifying business records to conceal a hush money payment to a porn star, is expected to be crisscrossing the country next spring along with his rivals as states host presidential nominating contests.”
