Trump Allies Rally in Manhattan Courtroom, VP Candidates Make Appearance To Boost Stock

Prominent figures loyal to former President Trump have converged at the Manhattan courthouse, creating a high-profile spectacle of support as he faces a criminal trial.

Axios reported that the Manhattan courtroom has become a new stage for Trump allies, including potential vice presidential candidates, to showcase their loyalty and secure a spot on his 2024 ticket.

In a display of allegiance, an entourage of loyalists has streamed into the Manhattan courthouse where Trump is facing trial. The courthouse has become a symbolic venue for Trump’s supporters, particularly those eyeing a potential vice presidential spot in the upcoming election.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) marked a significant moment by attending Trump's trial on Monday, becoming the first high-profile potential running mate to do so. His presence underscored the importance of this event for those in Trump's orbit.

Joining Vance in the courtroom were other notable figures, including Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, and Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird. Their attendance signals a united front and a bid for closer association with Trump.

Supporters Criticize Case, Highlight Loyalty

Outside the courthouse, Trump's allies did not hold back in their criticisms of the case and the key witness, Michael Cohen. While Trump himself is under a gag order preventing him from commenting on witnesses and others involved, his supporters have taken up the mantle.

Last week, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) attended court with Trump, showcasing his loyalty. Similarly, Ken Paxton, Texas attorney general, made an appearance late last month, further illustrating the ongoing public show of support.

These high-profile visits are part of a broader strategy by Trump’s allies to remain in his favor and visible to his base. Former and current Trump advisers, including senior adviser Jason Miller and Susie Wiles, a senior adviser to Trump's 2024 campaign, have also been spotted in court.

The race to become Trump’s vice presidential pick has become increasingly public. Potential contenders have been making frequent appearances on cable news shows that Trump is known to watch, and attending high-profile fundraisers.

In addition, these potential running mates have been present at Trump rallies, often echoing his rhetoric and avoiding direct answers on whether they would accept the 2024 election results. This strategy is seen as a way to align closely with Trump’s views and secure his favor.

Trump has indicated that he will announce his vice presidential pick before the Republican National Convention in July. This announcement is highly anticipated and expected to influence the dynamics of the 2024 presidential race.

Trump’s Stance on 2024 Election Results

In a recent interview, Trump discussed his position on the 2024 election results. He stated, "if everything's honest, I'll gladly accept the results. I won't change that." This declaration was a rare moment of clarity amid ongoing discussions about election integrity.

However, Trump also emphasized that if the results are not honest, action would be necessary to "fight for the rights of the country." This statement reflects his enduring focus on election security and his skepticism about the process.

As the trial continues, more Trump allies are expected to join him in court, demonstrating their loyalty and positioning themselves as key figures in his political future. The courtroom has thus become a focal point for Trump's inner circle and a stage for his political allies.


The Manhattan courthouse has become a center of activity as Trump's allies, including potential vice presidential candidates, make high-profile appearances to show their support. Figures like Sen. J.D. Vance and Sen. Rick Scott have been among the first to attend, while others continue to make their presence known. This show of loyalty comes as Trump faces a criminal trial, with his supporters vocal in their criticism of the case and the key witness. Trump's stance on the 2024 election results and his upcoming vice presidential pick announcement add further intrigue to this unfolding political drama.
