Donald Trump on Thursday told Latest York Attorney General Letitia James easy methods to do her job after she sued the ex-president and his three eldest children for allegedly wrongly valuing assets to cheat lenders and tax officials. James called the scope of fraud “astounding.” (Watch below.)
The previous president, in friendly territory with Sean Hannity on Fox News for part two of an interview, made a wild segue from claiming he intimidated the Taliban to attacking James. He said crime in Latest York has been “the worst we’ve ever had.” (NYPD stats show homicides are down 13% from the previous yr, while rapes, robberies and assaults are up.)
“Letitia James, she should deal with murder and crime in Latest York, where they walk into stores with axes they usually start swinging the axes at people,” Trump said, perhaps referring to a person who destroyed furniture at a Manhattan McDonald’s last week with a hatchet.
“That’s where she should be focused, not on how much is Mar-a-Lago value,” he continued.
James’ pursuit of Trump’s alleged scamming appears to fall squarely inside her jurisdiction.
“The Attorney General’s Office is charged with the statutory and customary law powers to guard consumers and investors, charitable donors, the general public health and environment, civil rights, and the rights of wage-earners and businesses across the State,” the AG’s website says.
