Former President Donald Trump departs 40 Wall Street after a news conference on March 25, 2024, in New York. A New York judge has scheduled an April 15 trial date in Trump's hush money case.

In anticipation of Donald Trump’s criminal trial later this month, a New York judge has imposed stricter limitations on his speech. Specifically, the judge has prohibited the former president from making derogatory remarks about prosecutors’ family members or the judge himself.
The action follows Trump’s weekend tirade against the adult daughter of New York County Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan, who had previously issued a gag order prohibiting Trump from criticizing court personnel and prosecutors the previous week.

Steven Cheung, the director of communications for Trump’s campaign, was contacted for comment on Monday evening. He deemed the directive “unconstitutional” and claimed that it infringes upon the “civil rights” of his social media followers, who “have a First Amendment right to receive and listen to his speech.”
Trump labeled Merchan’s daughter a “Rabid Trump Hater” over the weekend due to her employment at a firm that represents Democratic clients. In addition, he accused her of using a photo of him in prison as her social media profile image; however, a court official stated that the account had been accessed by a different user at the time the photo was added.

The assaults directed at Merchan’s daughter by Trump follow a recurring pattern. Judges have issued gag orders in two additional court cases within the last half-year, prohibiting Trump from criticizing witnesses and court personnel. However, Trump has counterattacked on the judges and a subset of their
