Donald Trump took to Truth Social on Friday, April 19, to accuse Judge Juan Merchan of "railroading him" to appease his "friends" in his ongoing hush money trial.

The 77-year-old also slammed the current gag order, claiming he could no longer talk about "the most important of topics," including the judge's alleged "totally disqualifying conflict of interest."

This is just yet another in a string of wild rants he's made on Truth Social to attempt to discredit the many legal cases against him.

Earlier that day, he described the hush money trial as a "Long, Rigged, Endurance Contest, dealing with Nasty, Crooked People." Shortly after, he made another post in which he insisted he was "under Political Attack from Biden’s D.C. Thugs."

As OK! previously reported, Trump is the first current or former POTUS to ever be criminally charged. He faces a total of 91 felony counts across four indictments.

His first criminal case began in New York on Monday, April 15. It revolves around payments made to Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal just prior to the 2016 presidential election. Both claimed to have had sexual encounters with the controversial businessman in 2006 — one year after he tied the knot with wife Melania Trump.
