Did Trump actually fall asleep in court?

Reports surfaced last week that former President Trump dozed off at the outset of his high-profile trial in New York City related to charges he illegally suppressed information about himself in 2016.

In a surprising report, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman wrote that Trump “appeared to nod off a few times, his mouth going slack and his head drooping onto his chest.”

Following the report, the hashtag #SleepyDonald briefly trended on X, formerly Twitter,  while the Biden campaign and several pundits, like “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg, took the opportunity to mock the former president.

Trump’s campaign has denied the report, noting the court's sketch artist, who was present. The campaign said Trump closed his eyes "momentarily."

“This is fake news from a reporter who wasn’t even in the courtroom,” the campaign told Fox News Digital.

"I’ve heard that report. It’s unlikely. I know him. I sat through trial after trial with him. That never happens. So, President Trump is incredibly focused,” Trump legal spokesperson Alina Habba told Fox News on Tuesday.
