“I’m testifying. I tell the truth. I mean, all I can do is tell the truth. And the truth is that there is no case,” Trump added. Trump is not under any legal obligation to testify in his criminal trial. However, if he does choose to testify, he would be subject to questioning by the prosecution, potentially covering a range of topics under oath, including his interactions with Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress.
