Former Donald Trump is set to return to New York City on Monday to face a civil fraud lawsuit filed by the state’s attorney general, Letitia James. The lawsuit alleges that Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, engaged in a “decade-long pattern of gross exaggeration or outright fabrication of [Trump’s] net worth” in order to obtain loans, insurance, and tax breaks.
On Truth Social, the president wrote, “I will be attending the trial in Manhattan this morning. I greatly appreciate all of the legal professors and scholars who are saying I DID NOTHING WRONG.”
The trial in New York continues a case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. The suit alleges that the president engaged in fraudulent business activity pertaining to the Trump Organization.
Per Axios, Trump’s appearance in New York on Tuesday will be his fourth time sitting for the trial, which clocks in at $250 million.
