Former President Donald Trump was widely mocked after a court photographer captured an angry screed he wrote on a Post-It note calling for his ongoing hush money trial to be dismissed.

Trump was photographed with his hands over two sticky notes ahead of Tuesday's court session. One of these notes was written in thick black marker and displayed the following message in what looked to be Trump's handwriting:

“This case should be dismissed by the judge but it’s totally corrupt.”

The criminal trial in New York revolves around accusations that Trump falsified business records in an attempt to conceal hush money payments made to adult film performer Stormy Daniels to silence her ahead of the 2016 general election.

Closing arguments ended Tuesday—and it's clear Trump hasn't been too happy with the direction the case has taken.

His Post-It note message prompted many to mock him profusely.



Jurors filed out of the courtroom earlier today to begin deliberations in the historic case, marking the first-ever criminal trial of a former American president.

The jury could take days or even weeks to reach a verdict, according to The New York Times. The verdict, the publication added, "could either vindicate Mr. Trump’s argument that he did nothing wrong or sully him as a felon as he seeks to regain the presidency."

After hearing Judge Juan Merchan's instructions to the jury, Trump took the opportunity to speak to reporters outside the courtroom. He once again asserted that the trial is "corrupt," declaring that "Mother Teresa could not beat the charges.”

Trump also complained that the trial has kept him off the campaign trail, though he has held multiple rallies and fundraisers and made public appearances on dates that court has not been in session.
