“Despite the time that Mr. Trump is required to fulfill this civic obligation, the campaign will continue to go on,”Cohen said. “He is happy to comply with his civic obligation.”
Trump, who has been a controversial candidate for the Republican nomination, will spend the weekend in the Midwest. In Iowa, he has pledged to give fair goers free rides in his private helicopter, the New York Times reported.
Trump has already paid a $250 fine this year for skipping jury duty in the past, Cohen said.
“Trump’s failure to appear for previous jury requests was the result of the unified court system’s error in the mailing address, and not Mr. Trump’s refusal to uphold his civic duty,” he said. “It is impossible to know if you are being asked to serve when the jury selection documents are sent to someone else’s home.”
