Former President Donald Trump raged against Judge Arthur Engoron during a lunch recess on the first day of his fraud trial in Manhattan on Monday.
Trump dismissed Engoron as a “Democrat” and an “operative” in a brief appearance in front of reporters. Trump stated that “this is a rigged court” in his heated statement. He also took aim at Attorney General Letitia James, labelling her a “radical-left attorney general.”
“This rogue judge refuses to acknowledge that we won 80% of this case in the appelate division,” Trump said, claiming Engoron has “contempt for his own court system.”
“The judge is wrong. The judge is wrong in his ruling,” Trump said. “He said Mar-a-Lago is worth 18 million. It’s worth at least a billion, maybe $1.5 billion.”
Trump’s lawyers had previously pointed to James’ promises to voters that she would “get Trump” if elected.
