NEW YORK (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is taking a break from the court of public opinion to go to … court.
Trump is due to report for jury duty Monday in lower Manhattan.
The Republican front-runner said last week before a rally in New Hampshire that he would willingly take a break from stumping on the campaign trail to answer the summons.
The real estate mogul and reality TV star has been called previously but didn’t appear. His campaign said he hadn’t received those summonses. A spokesman said the summonses had been sent to the wrong address.
In celebrity-studded New York City, it’s not unusual for famous names to be picked to show up for potential jury pools. Among them have been Tony Danza, Regis Philbin, Spike Lee and Madonna.
