Former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social to express his frustration after a heated courtroom confrontation with Judge Arthur Engoron during his New York fraud trial. The incident occurred on Thursday when Trump launched into a lengthy diatribe, directing his ire towards Judge Engoron and New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The judge allowed Trump to vent his grievances for several minutes before finally intervening and instructing Trump's attorney to regain control over his client. In the aftermath of the courtroom clash, Trump turned to Truth Social to voice his discontent, stating, "The Judge cut me off in Court and would not let me explain that I was worth much more than the 4 plus $Billion (years ago) I show in the Financial Statements, which are conservatively done." Trump also questioned Judge Engoron's decisions regarding the valuation of his properties, particularly Mar-a-Lago, which he claimed was undervalued by a billion dollars, suggesting a bias in favor of the Attorney General's case.

Trump expressed his suspicions, labeling the situation as a "WITCH HUNT" and alleging "ELECTION INTERFERENCE."

Trump's Continued Trial Criticism

The following day, Trump continued his criticism, questioning why Judge Engoron did not decide immediately after what he perceived as a conclusive demonstration of his innocence.

Trump reiterated that there were no "victims" in the alleged fraud, thus asserting his innocence. It's important to note that before the trial, Judge Engoron had already ruled that Trump, his company, and top executives could be held accountable for ongoing fraudulent activities.

The trial's outcome remains uncertain, as Judge Engoron is expected to announce his decision on the remaining aspects of Attorney General James' lawsuit by January 31st. The case has garnered significant attention, with supporters and opponents closely monitoring the proceedings.

Trump's candid expressions of frustration on Truth Social indicate the high stakes involved in this legal battle. The former president's remarks reflect his unwavering assertion of innocence and his belief that the legal system is being manipulated against him.

As the trial unfolds, it will continue to captivate public interest and generate headlines across various media outlets.
