Trump lawyer says will appeal verdict 'as soon as we can'

Donald Trump’s lawyer Todd Blanche said the real estate mogul would appeal his guilty verdict after becoming the first former US president ever convicted of a crime Thursday in his hush money trial.

Blanche indicated on CNN that Trump would push forward with post-trial motions and “if that is not successful, then as soon as we can appeal we will. And the process in New York is there’s a sentencing, and then we appeal from there.”
