It’s worth pointing out that Trump’s civil fraud trial started today, on exactly the day it was supposed to. All of Trump’s “delay tactics” failed to delay this trial by even a single day.
Trump doesn’t have a magic “delay” wand, and in spite of endless media hype to the contrary, he never did. This trial started on the day it was supposed to. The E. Jean Carroll trial started on the day it was supposed to start.
It’ll be the same with his criminal trials. Let’s keep that in mind going forward. For all the doomsday hype we’ll hear from some corners about Trump being able to “delay, delay, delay” and “run out the clock,” that’s clearly fictional. Just look around. Trump isn’t able to delay trials. If he were, his trial wouldn’t have started today.
