Former president Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, dove into a rant outside of the New York courthouse after his unconvincing testimony, attacking the New York Attorney General, murders and potholes.
If you’re confused, don’t worry. I think most were.
Eric Trump complained to reporters immediately after giving his testimony, then unleashed a myriad of complaints.
“What the state is trying to do with my father is absolutely insane!” he said.
“We have one of the greatest companies anywhere in the world. We employ thousands of New Yorkers. These people, they make their living relying on us! They feed their families, relying on us! We’ve never missed a note. We’ve never missed a payment. We’ve never defaulted on a loan. We’ve got some of the greatest properties in the world.”
Trump’s son then accused New York Attorney General Letitia James of playing politics. “And because you have an attorney general that play politics with everything, you’ve seen that time and time again. She effectively when after the last governor and threw him out of office, because you want to run that you got 2% in the polls.”
Trump said James only shows up in court for her “press moment.”
“But she’s using a broken system. She’s using a rigged system. And it’s very, very sad. And I know the truth will come out in the end. We haven’t done a single thing wrong,” Trump continued.
“Guys, we deserve better than this. Let’s get the murderers off the street. Let’s take care of the crime. Let’s rebuild our infrastructure. Everywhere you drive in New York, you hit a pothole and your car gets destroyed and they’re going after a guy who employs thousands of people in the state, employed them through COVID. The deepest, darkest times of this state, runs a great organization, literally puts food on the table for thousands of people.”
