Donald Trump’s predecessor will serve on a jury in Chicago. Cook County Chief Judge Tim Evans told county commissioners during a budget hearing on Friday that Mr Obama, who owns homes in Washington, DC and Chicago’s Kenwood neighbourhood, will serve in November.

The ex-POTUS is registered to vote in Chicago. Mr Evans said Mr Obama’s safety will be ‘uppermost in our minds’ when he serves. Those called can be put either in the pool for criminal case or civil hearings

They can be called to any of the county’s Chicago or suburban courthouses. All jurors watch a decades-old video about their duties narrated by a mustachioed Lester Holt, once a local news reader and now anchor of NBC Nightly News. Jurors in Cook County are paid 17.20 US dollars (£13.10) for each day of service.
