Former President Donald Trump took the stand on Monday in his civil fraud trial, which continued to draw attention. The proceedings were not without drama, as New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron clashed with Trump and his attorneys. Engoron scolded the Trump legal team, reminding them that the courtroom is not a political rally. It seems like Trump’s team needed that reminder, as they got into a shouting match with the judge. Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, told Engoron that he should be there to hear what Trump has to say, prompting the judge to shout at her to sit down. From the witness stand, Trump protested that the trial was unfair and hoped that the public was watching.

In a break from the trial, Habba held a press conference to address the morning’s events. She expressed her frustrations with the judge’s behavior and criticized New York Attorney General Letitia James’ case against Trump. Habba made it clear that she will not tolerate such treatment and suggested that the public should not either. She also took the opportunity to take a few shots at James, pointing out her failure in the governor’s race and predicting Trump’s success in future elections.
After his afternoon in court, Trump was expected to speak about the trial. Given his outspoken nature, it is unlikely that he will hold back in sharing his thoughts and opinions about the proceedings. It seems like this trial will continue to be a spectacle, keeping everyone on the edge of their seats.
This trial seems like nothing more than a political attack against Trump. The judge’s behavior and the attorney general’s case against him reek of bias and personal vendettas. It’s no surprise that the numbers don’t lie, and the numbers show that the American people still support Trump. This trial is just another example of the left’s desperate attempts to tear down a successful conservative leader.
