Trump released from New York jury duty, now back to campaign
NEW YORK - Donald Trump has been sent home without being picked for a jury.
The billionaire candidate for president reported for jury duty in New York City on Monday. He was released at the end of the day without being selected to serve on a case.
He has now fulfilled his civic obligation and can get back on the campaign trail.
Outside the courthouse, he said that it was "nice" to see how the system functions and that he had met some "really lovely" people.
The Republican front-runner arrived in the morning in a long black limousine and had to make his way through a crush of cameras and reporters. He got both boos and shouts of "Donald!" from onlookers.
He found himself sitting in a waiting room next to ordinary, subway-riding, wage-earning New Yorkers.
