ABC News reports:
President Donald Trump was distraught as he watched Trump Organization Allen Weisselberg walk into Manhattan court in handcuffs, according to ABC News reporter John Santucci, who said the former president called the 15-count indictment a “disgrace.”
Santucci asked Trump about the “perp walk” videos of Weisselberg in handcuffs.
“The president was unaware of that,” he explained. “He actually paused for a moment, while we were on the phone, Terry, looked up at cable news coverage and said to me, ‘John, I can’t believe it, it’s a disgrace. He’s a tremendous person.'”
