Trump Takes Witness Stand in $250 Million Civil Fraud Trial

HeadlineNov 07, 2023

Here in the United States, Donald Trump took the witness stand Monday in a civil fraud case brought by the state of New York against the former president and his businesses. Trump was repeatedly admonished by Judge Arthur Engoron for testimony that veered off topic and for lashing out against the court and New York Attorney General Letitia James, whom he called a “political hack.” James is seeking $250 million after accusing Trump, his two oldest sons, the Trump Organization and company executives of inflating the value of assets. The judge has already ruled Trump is liable for fraud; the trial will determine how much the Trumps will pay in damages. We’ll have more on the Trump civil trial in New York later in the broadcast.
