Former President Donald Trump denounced New York Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday as “racist” after she filed a wide-ranging civil fraud suit against him, three of his children and their family real estate company.
“Another Witch Hunt by a racist Attorney General,” Trump wrote on his new social media site. “She is a fraud who campaigned on a ‘get Trump’ platform, despite the fact that the city is one of the crime and murder disasters of the world under her watch!”
Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, the two adult sons of the former president, also denounced the suit as a “witch hunt” even as other top Republicans mostly kept quiet.
“The bulls–t Dem witch-hunt continues!” Trump Jr. tweeted, along with an unflattering photo of James.
“Not a political ‘witch hunt?!’ What a joke …” Eric Trump tweeted.
