Trump’s Trial to Cause Months-Long Disruption in NYC

Donald Trump’s upcoming trial over hush money payments is set to create a significant disruption in New York City for several months. The trial, which marks the first time a former US president faces criminal charges in court, will require extensive security measures and staffing arrangements.

To ensure adequate security, the US Secret Service has been collaborating with New York state court officers and the NYPD for weeks. They are preparing for the trial’s start with jury selection, which is expected to draw significant attention and crowds.

To handle the increased security demands, court officers from various boroughs across the city are being reassigned to Manhattan Supreme Court. This includes officers from roughly 20 other courthouses, who will assist with maintaining security and managing the trial proceedings.

The trial is anticipated to last six to eight weeks, during which Trump will be required to attend court sessions in person every day. This will result in road closures around the courthouse and significant logistical challenges for commuters and residents in Lower Manhattan.

While the exact cost of the trial to taxpayers remains undisclosed, it is expected to involve considerable expenses related to security measures and staffing resources.

Court officials have refrained from providing specific figures but have acknowledged the need for additional security measures during high-profile trials.
