Trump was found guilty on May 30 of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to hush money provided to an adult porn actor. He continues to make unfounded claims that the trial was rigged and that the judge was biased against him. Trump is expected to be sentenced for these charges in July.

Scripps News Phoenix will continue to submit interview requests for President Biden when he is in town for events.

Ahead of Thursday's rally, Scripps News Phoenix crews were there as several people were overcome with heat exhaustion while waiting outside. Our crews saw three people being taken away on stretchers by Phoenix firefighters. Phoenix Fire officials later confirmed 11 people were transported due to heat-related issues.
