Trump Barred From Countries Following Conviction

Former President Donald Trump is now reportedly banned from entering several countries due to his felony conviction. The news came as the former president plans to appeal the verdict, and decried it as unfair prosecution directed by the Biden administration.

The felony conviction means that Trump is now barred from entering more than three dozen countries around the world. This includes both Canada and the United Kingdom, which bar felons from entering their countries.

The Canadian government’s policy states that an American “Citizen or permanent resident that has a felony conviction on their criminal record may be deemed inadmissible to Canada for the purposes of immigrating, or even if they’re merely coming to Canada to visit.”

Trump may be able to enter Scotland under certain conditions. Trump has a golf course in the region.

It is further unclear whether or not Trump will be able to visit a series of other countries. Furthermore, should Trump return to the White House, there could be significant legal considerations. Such an event has not happened in American presidential history.

The former president and his legal team both said that they would appeal the decision. Trump attorney Will Scharf echoed Trump’s argument that the prosecution had its roots in the Biden administration.

“I vehemently disagree that the District Attorney in New York was not politically motivated here, and I vehemently disagree that President Biden and his political allies aren’t up to their necks in this prosecution,” he said.

Trump’s attorney cited the case of Matthew Colangelo, who left the Biden administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to work for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), who prosecuted the New York case.

“I don’t think President Trump is going to end up being subject to any sentence whatsoever, and we look forward to getting this case into the next court and taking this again all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary to vindicate President Trump’s rights,” he added.
