Donald Trump’s business fraud case came up in a New York court on Monday. The judge made this comment there.
He reduced the value of his business and property while taking the loan. Again, the value has been increased a lot during the sale of the property. Donald Trump and his family are being sued in a New York court over the allegations. The judge has already declared the former US president guilty.
The case was heard on Monday. Trump took the stand for a testimonial or defense. There the judge directly questioned him.
Trump deflected every question the judge asked. Most of the time he said the same thing over and over again. Trump also argued several times with Judge Arthur Ngoran. Basically, Trump has been fined twice for questioning the judiciary and contempt of courtroom.
Trump said Arthur never ruled on his behalf. He is there to insult him (Trump). He alleged that the trial is being conducted against him to embarrass him politically before the 2024 elections.
In reply, the judge said that the former president can go outside the court and bring as many charges against him as he wants. But the courtroom is not a political stage. He (Trump) must answer the judge’s questions there. The judge also alleged that he (Trump) was wasting the court’s time.
Businesses may be closed in New York
Trump may be fined $250 million in the current case. His business in New York may also close. In the coming days neither he nor his family will be able to do any business in New York. However, the current case is different from the other cases against him. Trump cannot be arrested in this case. Trump will not have any problem in fighting the election.
Trump said in court that no one has ever had a problem with his business activities. But the New York Attorney General alleged that Trump earned at least $100 million extra. His fortune has increased to about two million dollars. Trump, however, did not want to accept it. He also publicly insulted the New York attorney as a ‘black woman’ and ‘out of control’.
