Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump Slam N.Y. AG's Fraud Suit on Social Media


By    |   Wednesday, 21 September 2022 03:12 PM EDT

Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, the elder sons of former President Donald Trump, took to social media to respond to the Wednesday news of the New York Attorney General office's fraud lawsuit against Donald Trump, the Trump Organization, and the adult Trump children — including Ivanka.

After hearing about the $250 million lawsuit — covering accusations of widespread fraud and claiming false financial statements related to the Trump Organization — Donald Trump Jr. produced four consecutive posts for his Twitter audience of 8.5 million followers.

The first tweet was a retweet of an old video, when then-New York AG candidate Letitia James promised she would prioritize the targeting of former President Trump once she got into office.

It's unclear if James had full access to documents pertaining to the Trump Organization or former President Trump at the time of that video.

The second Tweet was a response to a @TrumpWarRoom post about James. For this post, James was giving another speech about her plans to sue Trump.

This prompted Donald Trump Jr. to write, "This is all about politics. Weaponizing her office to go after her political opponents!"

In a third tweet, which was pinned to the younger Donald's account, Trump Jr. shows more video evidence of James seeming to lock onto the notion of suing the elder Trump even before taking office.

Above the video, Trump Jr. wrote, "The [expletive] Dem witch-hunt continues!"

And for the fourth tweet, younger Donald produced a poll graph — courtesy of Insider Advantage — that had AG James trailing her Republican challenger by 1.2 percentage points for the November general election. And above the graph, Trump Jr. wrote: "Letitia James doesn't care about the law. She's a Dem activist, who only cares about politics.

"Here's the most recent poll in her reelection race. So she's now desperately trying to fire up her leftwing base with this BS. This is ALL politics, nothing more.


On the TruthSocial app, Eric Trump showed similar videos of James making campaign promises of bringing down the Trump family some time before she'd taken office.

Eric Trump did include editorial notes in two posts:

Post #1: "'Not a political “witch-hunt?!' What a joke!"

Post #2: "Letitia James is the most corrupt Attorney General in United States History — she campaigned on the promised to sue my father ... watch for yourself!"

And for the third Truth post, Eric Trump shared the same poll graph of Republican challenger Michael Henry currently appearing to edge out James in the Insider Advantage poll.

Eric Trump included a brief message to support the post, saying, "Letitia James Polls — not shocking that she is filing a lawsuit against @realDonaldTrump 49 days before her election."

In a Wednesday statement provided to Newsmax regarding the $250 million lawsuit, Trump attorney Alina Habba said, "Today's filing is neither focused on the facts nor the law — rather, it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General's political agenda.

"It is abundantly clear that the Attorney General's Office has exceeded its statutory authority by prying into transactions where absolutely no wrongdoing has taken place.

"We are confident that our judicial system will not stand for this unchecked abuse of authority, and we look forward to defending our client against each and every one of the Attorney General's meritless claims."
