The highest court must issue the ruling for the tycoon's alleged attempt to reverse the 2020 election results.

The Supreme Court of the United States is finalizing the details of the ruling that must determine whether the former president of the country and Republican candidate Donald Trump (2017-2021) enjoys presidential immunity in the case of the assault on the Capitol in 2021.

The trial against Trump in the federal court of the District of Columbia for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 elections in which he lost against Democrat Joe Biden is on hold pending the Supreme Court justices making a decision on immunity.

The country's highest judicial body, which usually issues its rulings during June before the summer recess, has public sessions scheduled this Thursday and Friday, days in which the resolution on Trump could be announced.

Days before said convention, Trump's sentence will be known after being found guilty by a jury in New York of all charges for falsifying business records to buy the silence of a porn actress to protect his 2016 presidential run.

The New York tycoon is also accused in Florida for having illegally withheld classified documents that he took from the White House and in Georgia for electoral interference in that state in 2020.
