NEW YORK — 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 had been called previously but didn’t appear. His campaign said he hadn’t received those summonses.
Michael Cohen, an executive vice president at the Trump Organization and special counsel to Trump, said the summonses had been sent to an address where the New York businessman never lived.
In celebrity-studded New York City, it’s not unusual for famous names to be picked to show up in potential jury pools. Among them have been Tony Danza, Regis Philbin, Spike Lee and Madonna.
