First 7 jurors picked as Trump’s hush money trial wraps on day 2: Live updates

Former President Trump is back in a Manhattan courtroom Tuesday for the continuation of jury selection in his criminal hush money trial.

The process is expected to last a minimum of several days as hundreds of New Yorkers will be whittled down to 12 jurors with six alternates.

More than half of the nearly 100 prospective jurors in the first round of jury selection Monday were almost immediately excused after they said they could not be fair or impartial in a trial whose parameters date back to Trump’s 2016 election.

By Tuesday afternoon, that initial batch of 96 potential jurors that began their process the day before had been whittled down to 24.
