Prompting further criticism was an online post by Trump’s son, Don Jr., featuring an article with a photo of Merchan and his daughter. Daughter of Judge on Trump Case Worked on Biden-Harris Campaign,” Don Jr. wrote on Twitter. Story continues“This defendant has made a series of threatening and escalating communications on social media and on other public remarks. Trump’s lawyers, in response, argued that Trump had a free-speech right to express his frustration over the case. Merchan said he didn’t agree with that interpretation, but noted he wouldn’t issue a gag order even if he was asked.
