He's being accused of something VERY serious.
Inflating his net worth.
Not only is it important that America knows they can trust Trump, but this is also a particularly important topic for the former president to be truthful about.
That's because it's his bread and butter, one of the skills he hangs his hat on.
He's risen to become one of the most powerful celebrities the world has ever seen based on pretty much one thing:
His ability to make money.
Whether it's for himself, his neighbor, or his country, Trump has pretty much created his entire brand around the idea that nobody has or can make as much money as he does.
New York Attorney General Letitia James thinks that what Trump has been saying about his value is false:
"No trial is required for the court to determine that defendants presented grossly and materially inflated asset values…repeatedly in business transactions to defraud banks and insurers," said Andrew Amer, an attorney for James' office said.
If there is one person in America who was going to take offense to James' office talking like that, you can probably guess who it would be.
He didn't hold back either. He made a post on Truth Social. Not only that, but he also wrote in ALL CAPS:
IN THE NYS A.G. LETITIA JAMES CASE, I WAS TARGETED, GIVEN NO JURY, NO EXTENSIONS, NO COMMERCIAL DIVISION, NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, NO ANYTHING! THE DEMOCRAT JUDGE HATES TRUMP WITH A PASSION. THE THING I HAVE IS A GREAT CASE BASED ON PHENOMENAL NUMBERS THAT SHOW A NET WORTH BILLIONS OF DOLLARS MORE THAN SHE VICIOUSLY & FALSELY CLAIMED, VERY LITTLE DEBT, BIG CASH, A POWERFUL DISCLAIMER CLAUSE, PAID OFF LOANS, NO DEFAULTS, “HAPPY” BANKS, GREAT ASSETS. I WAS DEFAMED BY NYS - ELECTION INTERFERENCE!
That's pretty much how I would have expected Trump to have felt.
Who do you believe in this story? Do you think it even matters if Trump has been lying about his net worth?
