Donald Trump said his criminal trial and conviction have been tough on his wife, Melania. Last week, a jury found Trump guilty of falsifying business records to hide hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election, making him the first US president convicted of a crime. He has called the trial unfair and politically motivated.

In a Fox News interview, Trump said winning the upcoming election would be his “revenge.” He faces sentencing on July 11 and plans to appeal.

Trump mentioned the trial’s difficulty for Melania, saying it’s harder on his family than on him. Under New York law, Trump could face up to four years in prison for each of the 34 felonies, though this is unlikely.

Trump admitted he might go to prison but doubted the public would accept it, predicting a “breaking point.”

Meanwhile, Stormy Daniels expressed surprise at the quick verdict and believes Trump should serve jail time and do community service.

Trump also faces charges in three other cases, including an alleged attempt to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results and mishandling classified documents in Florida, where the trial has been delayed.

This summary is based on a report from the BBC.
