Nancy Grace is live outside the Phoenix courthouse with the very latest developments in the Jodi Arias murder trial at 8 p.m. ET on HLN.
“First of all, it’s an amazingly vicious and crazy trial,” Trump told Grace Monday night.
“It’s somewhat of a travesty to have a person on the stand for many, many, many days, and I think she really loved it,” Trump added.
“Why do you think Arias should take a deal?” Grace asked Trump.
“Well, I would have said make a deal to get out of the death penalty for one, but I will tell you with the jury being out so long, I’m a little surprised. It seemed to me to be a very obvious case. I mean, she’s guilty as hell,” Trump said.
“This was brutal…the shots, the many, many, many stab wounds, the cutting of the throat... I will say I’m very surprised they [the jury] hasn’t come back with a verdict,” Trump added.
