Trump immunity case live updates: Supreme Court hears historic arguments

US

As Trump headed into court on Thursday morning for his ongoing trial in New York (he has pleaded not guilty), he continued to weigh in on the presidential immunity case.

“I think that the Supreme Court has a very important argument before it today,” he told reporters as he entered the hallway inside a Manhattan courtroom for his hush money trial. “I would have loved to have been there but this judge would not allow me to be there.”

Trump argued that the president “has to have immunity,” repeating a claim that federal prosecutors and some judges have so far said would upend the rule of law.

“This has to do with a president in the future for 100 years from now,” he said. “If you don’t have immunity, you’re not going to do anything. You’re going to become a ceremonial president. It’s just going to be doing nothing, you’re not going to take any of the risks, both good and bad.”
