Trump Expresses Anger on Truth Social After Losing Civil Fraud Trial

Trump vents on Truth Social after coming up short in his civil fraud trial

Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial in New York concluded on Friday, with Justice Arthur Engoron imposing further penalties on the former president totaling $355 million.

Expressing his discontent on Truth Social, Trump denounced the verdict as a “sham,” particularly objecting to the three-year prohibition from holding executive positions in any New York company, including his own.

In his online statement, Trump argued vehemently, asserting, “There were No Victims, No Damages, No Complaints. Only satisfied Banks and Insurance Companies (which made a ton of money), GREAT Financial Statements that didn’t even include the most valuable Asset – The TRUMP Brand, IRONCLAD Disclaimers (Buyer Beware, and Do your Own Due Diligence), and amazing Properties all over the World.”

Continuing in another post, Trump criticized the justice system in New York and America as being under siege by what he described as “partisan, deluded, biased Judges and Prosecutors.”

Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, echoed his sentiments in a statement on X (formerly Twitter), denouncing the verdict as a “manifest injustice” stemming from a politically motivated campaign aimed at “taking down Donald Trump.”

Habba emphasized the broader implications, warning that if upheld, the decision would signify that New York is no longer conducive to business. She stated, “This is not just about Donald Trump – if this decision stands, it will serve as a signal to every single American that New York is no longer open for business.”
