Should Trump Comply with the Gag Order?

Should Trump Comply with the Gag Order?

Here’s The Scoop

In a bold, patriotic stance, former President Donald Trump championed his constitutional rights, defying the gag order imposed on him by a New York judge. The order threatens jail time if Trump continues to violate it during his criminal trial. Refusing to be silenced, Trump quoted American Founding Father Patrick Henry on Truth Social, declaring, “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Trump’s post highlighted the imbalance in our nation when constitutional rights are being squashed for political convenience. He drew attention to the fact that while his right to free speech is being curtailed, those he opposes are free to say whatever they want, regardless of the truth.

This is not just about Trump; it’s an assault on the Republican Party and our once-great nation. The First Amendment must stand strong, unfettered, and free. This gag order is a prime example of the fascist mindset that has taken hold in DC, a strategic attack on Trump as Crooked Joe Biden’s political opponent.

Despite the threats of jail time, Trump made it clear that he is willing to make the “sacrifice” to defend free speech, stating, “Our Constitution is much more important than jail. It’s not even close. I’ll do that sacrifice any day.” His post on Wednesday was a powerful nod to the patriotic line from Henry’s 1775 address, a rallying cry for liberty and resistance against tyranny.

The media may jest about Trump’s potential imprisonment, but this is a serious assault on free speech and the integrity of our Constitution. Trump’s defiance serves as a stark reminder of the importance of standing up for our rights in the face of political manipulation.

      Do you even know what a gag order is? This is a civil trial, and he has the right to speak even in court, as well as outside court proceedings. A gag order means no discussing proceedings in and out of court.

        Gag orders are very common in criminal cases. Participants should NOT be discussing things outside of the courtroom. Trump has no special privileges to NOT follow the law, just like every other defendant has to. That people would think otherwise is disgusting. I guess the rule of law is truly dead in the United States.

      Time for America to Stand with President Trump. He is correct! He is being targeted by the Biden Regime and this is clear interference by the Democratic Party to stiffen his right to free speech during the 2024 election. They did it last with COVID, now they are prosecuting him with FALSE charges and his right to defend himself in the legal system. This is the way DEMOCRATS this round want to get him shut down. The MAJORITY of Americans have awaken to the evil Democrats that have become so corrupt.

        That is a bunch of hogwash! He is a criminal defendant, and needs to follow all the laws that all criminal defendants do. This isn’t about politics, it’s about his criminal behavior with his businesses, which started long before he ran for president.

      Trump is, it’s the New York City court (again) that is trying to deprive him his right to free speech. You Democrats think you can do as you please whenever you want. Give America a break.

    Are you saying he should be treated differently than anyone else on trial? When people’s lives have been threatened by his comments , a normal person would be more cautious and not want to endanger other people. But I guess someone who says there will be blood in the streets if he isn’t elected is not normal and doesn’t care about anyone but himself

      Not meant as defending his actions but do you really believe this is about him breaking the law or is it really about keeping him off the campaign trail and keeping Biden in power. It has already been established some of the charges against him are past the statute of limitations and had to be stacked on top of each other in order to make a case. All I know is they are pulling out all the stops to prevent him running for president again. The people should decide their leaders not the courts.

    He has the same rights as any American citizen. If they do it him, they can do it to you.
    As Voltaire said,” I disagree with what you say, but I defend to death, your right to say it.”
    Stop thinking stupid. He has the same rights as you.

      Absolutely. And the same responsibilities, which are to follow court orders, and NOT threaten people involved in court proceedings, or incite others to threaten those people. Gag orders apply to any criminal defendant – they are not put in place JUST on Trump

    Wow! I can’t believe so many people hate our constitutional rights. This on going persecution of one person since 2016 to usurp his power as President, because of building a hotel in Russia way before running for office, and being elected because he was not corruptible. 26 years of absolute power in our nations capital has made the Democratic party the most corrupt in our nations history, starting with Hilary Clinton’s influence on Bill, then Obama with his 8 year dictatorship, and now with mentally deranged puppet Biden. Look at what we got in return, rampant crime everywhere, terrorist group welcomed to wander our nation, hell even Chinese troops came over the southern border. Then we have the worst economy since the great depression in the 30’s, homelessness in the millions because of inflated cost of living, and supplying drugs to the mentally ill instead of opening the asylums we once had across this land to care for them.Yeah great job you’ve screwing this country up.

    The arrogant wacky NY STATE democrats, created a farce civil proceeding against Trump TO create a Federal Crime, they have yet to identify. This is a wackamo distraction to take Trump hostage, and off the Election Campaign trail. The DEMS Hostile witnesses, should also be charged as Co conspirators. Trump should bring a Federal Lawsuit against the State of NY, but file it in Florida’s Fed Court.

    The unfairness of this sham trial is nothing more than a political hit job to keep the 45th President of the USA from winning another term in office! I voted yes to comply to the gag order only because I fear what might happen to D.J.Trump in jail . . . the rabid Left have already demonstrate that they will stop at nothing to keep Trump from a 2nd term in office. Is this what Democrats call democracy? Democracy allows citizens to decide with their votes.

    Freedom of speech has never included contempt of court, defamation, or threats. Trump should take note.
