Former US President Donald Trump claimed that if Mother Teresa had faced the charges he was facing, even she “could not beat these charges.”

The former president made these remarks as the hush-money trial case jury started deliberations on Wednesday.

Talking to the media outside the Manhattan courtroom, Donald Trump accused the judge of bias and corruption.

“The judge, who, as you know, is very conflicted and corrupt. Because of the confliction, very, very corrupt. Mother Teresa could not beat these charges. These charges are rigged. The whole thing is rigged,” Trump remarked.

“The whole country is a mess, between the borders and fake elections, and you have a trial like this where the judge is so conflicted, he can't breathe. He's got to do his job. … it's a disgrace. And I mean that, Mother Teresa could not beat those charges. But we'll see. We'll see how we do.”

The 45th US President faces 34 counts of falsifying business records. The case level charges against Trump that he falsified records to hide a $130,000 payment to former porn star Stormy Daniels. The money he paid to the actress was intended to buy her silence in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Donald Trump reiterated his assertion that the trial against him is rigged. “We're going to win this election. Nov. 5 is going to be the most important day in the history of our country. We're going to take back our country from these fascists and these thugs that are destroying us with inflation and with everything they do. How stupid they are — allowing 15, 16, 17 million people into our country. Totally unvetted, totally unchecked,” he said.

“We're going to bring back our nation Nov. 5. Remember the most important day in the history of our country. In the meantime, this trial is rigged.”
