Donald Trump has been in opposition to the Central Park Five even after they were declared as non-accused in 2002.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump had spent on four full-page advertisements in New York newspapers titled: 'Bring Back The Death Penalty, Bring Back Our Police!' and wrote that he hated those murderers, and he would not examine or understand them. He'd added that he would have rather punished them directly, and he had also made statements against them in an interview with CNN.
The case has received renewed public attention following the release of the Netflix miniseries 'When They See Us.' There is much evidence that Trump spoke against the Central Park Five even after they were found not guilty. He was asked by a reporter at the White House on June 16, 2020, if he would apologize to the Central Park Five for the newspaper ads. He stated that they had admitted their guilt. He also blamed Linda Fairstein, a sexual crime prosecutor, and some of the prosecutors think that the city should never have settled and suggested to leave the case there itself. Trump had also tweeted against the Central Park Five in 2013.
