Former President Donald Trump continued Friday his attacks on the daughter of the judge in his porn star hush money trial, which is set to start on April 15th.

On Monday, New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan expanded the gag order on Trump to include his daughter.

Trump’s legal team then filed a motion to have Judge Merchan recuse himself because of his daughter’s work at a digital agency promoting left-leaning causes. On Tuesday, Trump also posted to his Truth Social a clip of Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade attacking the judge’s daughter.

Trump has continued to focus on the judge's daughter by sharing articles on social media, despite the gag order.

On Friday, Trump posted two links from hard-right writers Steven Richards and Gregg Jarrett, who both supported Trump’s claims that Justice Merchan should recuse himself because of his daughter’s work.


The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake commented on Trump’s online behavior, “On Monday, a judge issued a gag order preventing Trump from attacking the judge’s daughter. On Tuesday, Trump posted a Fox and Friends video that included discussion of the judge’s daughter. Today, Trump is going even further, posting multiple stories that focus on the judge’s daughter.”

It is not clear yet if Judge Merchan will take action against Trump for the posts. In a previous civil fraud trial, Trump was fined for violating a gag order by keeping up a social media post on his campaign website attacking the court’s clerk even though he was not supposed to.
