As promised earlier, former US President Donald Trump has arrived to take the stand and testify in the massive $250 million lawsuit put up against him in the name of fraud.
The country’s former Commander in Chief appeared very serious while arriving with his team of lawyers and security entourage in New York recently. And that was when he was warned against making any political speeches on the stand while he slammed prosecutors as well as Democrats, calling them haters at the start of his testimony in the massive fraud trial.
The Judge admonished the former leader for not generating any responses to the queries put up in front of him by prosecutor Kevin Wallace. Moreover, the news comes as tensions were seen running at an all-time high, immediately after taking the stand on Monday.
The former leader was immediately called upon as a witness, moments after he entered the courtroom in Manhattan and was sworn in. This was also when he slammed the whole political warfare situation that arose against him, calling it an ideal situation that can only arise in places dubbed banana republics.
After that, a series of sparks began to fly when the 77-year-old lashed out at Engoron for always making rulings against him. He similarly said that all the lawyers were coming for him unfairly from 15 separate angles, and most of them were Democrats or Trump-haters.
And then all of a sudden, a series of confrontations began when Trump started to generate replies to questions that were linked to a series of concerns regarding his financial transactions and statements.
During one of the replies, the former leader became outspoken a little too much and triggered a snigger from the press officials while branding this entire ordeal linked to proceedings as one that was crazy.
