While speaking to Khabib Nurmagomedov, a Russian former mixed martial artist, Trump said “We will stop it. I will stop the war” after Nurmagomedov told him “I know you will stop the war in Palestine.” The Israel-Hamas War began on October 7. At least 1,000 people in Israel have died since the war began while more than 30,000 have died in Palestine.

The former president stepped into the arena with UFC President Dana White, greeting comedian Theo Von as he made his way to his seat. The crowd welcomed him with thunderous applause and Trump shook the hands of some of the fans.

Trump called the trial “a disgrace”.

“This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt as a rigged trial and disgrace. It wouldn’t give us a venue change. We were at five per cent or six per cent in this district, in this area. This was a rigged disgraceful trial.”

He continued: “The real verdict is going to be November 5th by the people.”
