Former President Donald Trump responded to the testimonies of his sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., in their father’s business fraud trial on Thursday, November 2. The two gave back-to-back testimonies, denying any involvement in the Trump Organization’s financial statements.
According to a report by Raw Story on Thursday, November 2, 2023, Trump Jr., speaking as a trustee, stated, “I have an obligation to listen [to]those who are experts who have an expertise of these things.”
Eric Trump, the second son, also distanced himself, asserting he “never had anything to do with the statement of financial condition.”
In a post on Truth Social, Trump expressed his dismay, claiming his sons were being “persecuted in a political witch hunt” by a New York State Judge.
He criticized the case, asserting it should have never been brought, and accused the judge of seeking publicity.
Trump emphasized that his net worth exceeds the financial statements, and he highlighted a disclaimer clause urging readers to conduct their own due diligence.
Moreover, Trump pointed out an alleged revelation in the trial, claiming the star witness admitted to lying.
He argued that banks and insurance companies made money, with no victims except for those affected by street crimes in New York. The former president also took aim at the judge, accusing her of devaluing a billion-dollar house to $18 million.
The post on Truth Social concluded with a sharp critique of the Attorney General, whom Trump accused of neglecting her duties by allowing the Trump family to be “abused.”
This latest development in the trial comes amidst a contentious atmosphere, with various perspectives on the validity of the allegations against the Trump Organization. Legal experts and observers continue to weigh in on the proceedings.
As the trial unfolds, the former president’s commentary on social media adds a layer of public scrutiny to an already high-profile case.
The legal battle involving the Trump family is expected to remain a focal point, with the potential for further revelations and political ramifications.
