New York Judge Is “Deranged,” Says Trump
In the wake of accusations of Fraud, a defiant Donald Trump says the NY Judge making the assertions is “deranged” and has “railroaded this fake case.”
Judge Arthur Engoron, in a civil lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, ruled that Trump and his company deceived banks, insurers, and others by massively overvaluing his assets and exaggerating his net worth on paperwork used in making deals and securing loans.
“I have a Deranged, Trump Hating Judge, who RAILROADED this FAKE CASE through a NYS Court at a speed never seen before, refusing to let it go to the Commercial Division, where it belongs, denying me everything, No Trial, No Jury,” Trump posted Wednesday morning on Truth Social. “He made up this crazy ‘KILL TRUMP’ decision, assigning insanely low values to properties, despite overwhelming evidence.
“AS AN EXAMPLE, HE VALUES THE MOST SPECTACULAR PROPERTY IN PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, MAR-A-LAGO, AT $18,000,000, WHEN IT IS WORTH POSSIBLY 100 TIMES THAT AMOUNT.
“His anger & hatred is politically motivated & unprecedented by those who watched!”
Trump released a lengthy statement on Truth Social about the Judge’s decision, saying his “actual Net Worth is MUCH GREATER than the number shown on the Financial Statements.”
“[A] BIG SURPRISE to him & the Racist A.G., Letitia James, who campaigned for office on a get Trump Platform,” Trump wrote Wednesday. “While murderers roam the sidewalks of New York, my banks are happy; all loans are current or paid off in full, sometimes early, with no defaults or problems of any kind. There is also an IRONCLAD DISCLAIMER CLAUSE!”
Meanwhile, Trumps son Erick joined the chorus of outrage and disbelief, criticizing Judge Engoron’s appraisal of his father’s Mar-a-Lago resort in a New York fraud case, asserting that the opulent Florida property’s actual value could soar beyond the sum of one billion dollars.
“In an attempt to destroy my father and kick him out of New York, a judge just ruled that Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach Florida, is only worth approximately ’18 million dollars’…Mar-a-Lago is speculated to be worth well over a billion dollars, making it arguably the most valuable residential property in the country. It is all so corrupt and coordinated,” Eric Trump posted on “X.”
