WATCH: J.D. Vance Says Trump's Trial Is Democrat Effort To Distract From Biden's Failing Presidency - It's 'Psychological Torture'

On Sunday, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) joined CNN to discuss the ongoing hush money trial brought against presumpitve GOP nominee Donald Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D). Vance, who is reportedly in the running to be Trump's vice president, told CNN's 'State of the Union' that the trial is an attempt to distract from President Joe Biden's failing administration.

"I certainly think he is being treated differently. The only thing that Alvin Bragg, the New York prosecutor's team, thinks Donald Trump did wrong is that he ran for president in 2024, and he looks to be on the cusp of victory. That is the only thing that this is ultimately about. If you look at the underlying argument in the case, they can't even identify what Donald Trump did," Vance said, adding that Bragg's team has yet to specify the crime that Trump allegedly has committed.

"This is about the fact that President Joe Biden has a failed record as commander in chief and leader of this country, and the Democrats can't talk about that. So what they're doing is putting these trials out there and saying, 'Focus on this, not on the fact that the world is on fire and the fact that you've gotten poor under the presidency of Joe Biden,'" the Ohio senator added.

Sen. Vance joined Trump at the courthouse on Monday to see firsthand the trial against him as Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, took the stand. Vance determined the main goal of the trial was to be "psychological torture" for Trump as he attempts to campaign for president. 

"[W]e started in Trump Tower with a beautiful view of Central Park. Then you come to a dingy courthouse with people like Alvin Bragg.  They prevent his supporters from getting too close to the courthouse, and they prevent his friends from standing too close to him. The president is expected to sit here for six weeks to listen to the Michael Cohens of the world," Vance wrote on X. "I'm now convinced the main goal of this trial is psychological torture. But Trump is in great spirits."

Trump is currently facing 34 counts of falsifying business records after his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels following an alleged 2006 affair. Trump then reimbursed Cohen for the payment, and it was allegedly marked down in business records as a legal expense. However, Alvin Bragg argues that the hush money payment was used to protect Trump's 2016 campaign and thus violates campaign finance law.
