Former Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr does not believe that Donald Trump will serve jail time following his conviction on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. Vance cited the proximity of the 2024 election as a potential factor in the sentencing. Trump will be sentenced on 11 July, just four days before the Republican National Convention, where he is expected to be named the official GOP presidential nominee. Vance also mentioned the possibility of postponing the sentencing hearing until after the general election. Meanwhile, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis clarified that Trump can still vote in his home state despite his felony conviction. Trump himself addressed his conviction in an interview, claiming that Americans would rise up in his defense if he were thrown in prison. Additionally, Trump attended a UFC event in New Jersey and professed that he would stop the war in Gaza. Finally, Trump has joined TikTok, the social media platform he tried to ban as president.
