Trump started the day outraged about the lack of notice that Stormy Daniels would testify

From CNN's Dan Berman

Given the tense atmosphere in the courtroom as Trump's attorney Susan Necheles presses Stormy Daniels in various ways in order to damage the adult film star's credibility, it's worth remembering that at the beginning of the day Trump was angry about not knowing who today's witness was.

Trump railed against the timing in which his team became aware of Tuesday’s witness in his criminal trial in an early morning Truth Social post that has since been taken down.

“I have just recently been told who the witness is today. This is unprecedented, no time for lawyers to prepare,” the deleted post said.

Before the jury came in Tuesday morning, Necheles renewed the defense team's objection to Daniels testifying.

"We want to renew our objection this morning. We’re informed the second witness will be Stormy Daniels. We want to renew our objection to her testifying, particularly about any details of any sexual acts," she said.

Prosecutors have made a point of not sharing witness plans with Trump, citing his various social media posts attacking potential witnesses.
