New York City Mayor Eric Adams makes a surprising announcement that the city’s notorious Rikers Island jail and its Department of Corrections were ready to receive former President Donald Trump.

Adams made this remark when asked if Rikers was prepared for Trump to be ordered to jail for violating a gag order imposed during the trial.

“At President Trump’s trial, they were talking about how he might end up in jail if he continues to violate these court orders,” a reporter said. “Is Rikers prepared for that?”

In response to the reporter’s question, Adams confirmed that the New York City Department of Corrections Commissioner Lynelle Maginley-Liddie is prepared for any situation.

“Our amazing commissioner Lynelle Maginley-Liddie is prepared for whatever comes on Rikers Island,” Adams said. “I’m pretty sure the Department of Corrections commissioner would be prepared to manage and deal with the situation. As you see what’s happening with Harvey Weinstein, we have to, you know, in this business, particularly around law enforcement, we have to adjust whatever comes our way.”

According to Fox News, Trump is currently on trial in Manhattan for 34 counts of falsifying business records.

The case revolves around the former president’s attorney, Michael Cohen, paying former adult film actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 to allegedly keep quiet about an alleged extramarital affair she had with Trump in 2006.

Trump has repeatedly denied the affair and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Last week, Juan Merchan, the presiding judge over Trump’s business records trial, held the former president in contempt for violating the gag order nine times, issuing him a $1,000 fine for each violation.

However, Merchan threatened to jail the former president on Monday after finding him in contempt for violating a gag order for the tenth time.

The gag order against Trump prevents him from making public statements about the witnesses in the trial, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s staff, court staff, or family members of staff.

“The last thing I want to consider is jail,” Merchan said. “You are the former president and possibly the next president.”

Merchan added that Trump’s actions constitute a direct attack on the rule of law, and he, the judge, couldn’t allow that to continue.

“So as much as I do not want to impose a jail sanction, I want you to understand that I will, if necessary and appropriate,” Merchan said.
