“I don’t believe I did anything wrong and that’s what I want to say. USA, thank you,” Zhang said in another unusual turn in an unusual case. She faces up to six years in prison if convicted.
Sherwin said Zhang spoke English well during her interaction with employees and agents, and was “calm, cool and collected.”
Altman tried repeatedly Monday to change Zhang’s mind about representing herself as he has done during every hearing since she fired her public defenders in June. When he demanded that she answer yes or no if she wanted to use her attorneys, who are in court on standby, she went into a long monologue in Mandarin. Altman cut her off before it could be translated, and she said she didn’t want them.
Zhang primarily used a translator Monday, but at one point told Altman she hadn’t spoken Mandarin in months and was having a hard time following along.
When asked by prosecutor Rolando Garcia if he could identify the woman, however, he said he wasn’t sure. An experienced defense attorney would have challenged Isidore and asked Altman to strike his testimony as unreliable, but Zhang said she had no questions.Read more: The Associated Press

As trial starts, alleged Mar-a-Lago intruder insists she thinks the trial has been canceledThe trial of a Chinese woman accused of lying her way through a Secret Service checkpoint at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort earlier this year got off to an unusual start when the defendant said repeatedly that she thought the trial had been canceled. I’m thinking someone in Trump’s circle lied to her to prevent her from showing up in court. She got upset when someone fell on her brocolli. She grew even more upset when they fell on her cauliflower. Why is she getting in trouble for false statements? It seems to me she's just mimicking Trump.
