Donald Trump unleashed a furor against New York Attorney General Letitia James after she announced a major lawsuit against her and her three children.
The former president responded on Truth Social, writing, “Another witch hunt by a racist Attorney General Letitia James, who failed her run for governor, received almost zero support from the public, and is now working poorly against the Law & Order AG candidate. , The Very Honorable Michael Henry”.
“I never thought this case would be brought – until I saw his really bad poll numbers. He is a fraud who campaigned on a ‘Get Trump’ platform, even though this city is one of the world’s crime and murder disasters under his watch!” she added.
In a second post, Mr Trump added: “Attorney General Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James, a total crime-fighting disaster in New York, spends all her time fighting for the very powerful and well-represented banks and insurance companies who were paid in full. , Made a lot of money, and never complained about me, instead of fighting murder and violent crime, which is killing New York State.”
“He’s a failed AG whose lack of crime-fighting talent is causing record numbers of people and companies to flee New York. Bye, bye!” she wrote.
“Today, I filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump for engaging in years of financial fraud to enrich himself, his family and the Trump Organization. There are no two sets of laws for the people of this country: former presidents must be held to the same standards as everyday Americans,” Ms James tweeted on Wednesday.
“With the help of Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka and other defendants, Trump has variously illegally inflated his net worth by billions to obtain and satisfy loans, receive insurance benefits, and pay lower taxes. In short, he has lied to obtain massive financial benefits for himself. ,” he added.
Ms. James tweeted that her investigation “found that Trump, his family and the Trump Organization used fraudulent and misleading asset valuations 200 times over 10 years in his annual financial statements. These statements were then used to obtain tens of millions of dollars in loans and insurance coverage”.
“Trump’s crime is not punishable,” he added. “When the well-connected and powerful break the law to get more money than they’re entitled to, it reduces the resources available to working people, small businesses and taxpayers.”
