Trump Blasts Judge, AG During Fraud Trial

(New York, NY) — Former President Trump is calling his fraud trial in New York “a scam” and “a disgrace.” The civil fraud trail began in Manhattan today with a state prosecutor accusing the former President of generating more than a billion dollars by inflating the value of real estate holdings. Outside the courtroom this afternoon, Trump accused the judge of being “a Trump hater” and going rogue. He then called New York Attorney General Letitia James a “disgrace to our country.” Trump is facing fines up to 250-million-dollars.
