In a dramatic turn of events, former President Donald J. Trump expressed his dismay and frustration during a recess of his trial in New York on fraud charges. The trial, which alleges that Trump and his company deceived banks and insurers about his wealth, could potentially result in the loss of some of his most prized properties. Trump did not hold back, calling the trial a “disgrace” and a “witch hunt.”
Despite Justice Arthur Engoron’s ruling last week, which canceled Trump’s New York business certificates, the former president still remains defiant. He took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to share his thoughts on the matter. Trump accused the New York Attorney General Letitia James of election interference and slammed the judge for his bias. He even suggested that the judge should be disbarred and charged criminally.

Throughout the trial, Trump made his presence known by attending voluntarily and defending his financial statements as “phenomenal.” He also emphasized that this trial is not just a fight for him but for the American people. Trump painted himself as the victim of a corrupt system, pointing fingers at both Jack Smith and the Department of Justice (DOJ). He accused them of orchestrating a fast-tracked trial to undermine his campaign for the presidency.
As the trial continues, Trump remains firm in his belief that the American people will not stand for this alleged attempt to harm his chances of returning to the White House. With his fiery personality and unwavering determination, it is clear that Trump is not backing down without a fight.
