Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James as he headed into court for the second day of trial for her business fraud lawsuit against him and his company.
“This case should be dismissed,” Trump told reporters in a hallway in Manhattan Supreme Court.
“And she should probably be dismissed also,” he said of James.
The attorney general accuses Trump, two of his adult sons, the Trump Organization, and top executives of fraudulently valuing real estate properties to obtain more favorable loan and insurance terms, and tax benefits.
Trump on Tuesday said, “Her numbers are fraudulent.”
He had glared at James on Monday when walking out of the courtroom.
James is seeking $250 million in damages in the case, as well as a ban on Trump and his sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, from running a business in New York.
