Donald Trump Jr. returned to the witness stand during his family’s civil fraud trial in New York, where he painted his father, the former president, as a real estate “artist” with the ability to create luxury out of thin air.
In his testimony, the younger Mr. Trump aimed to defend the Trump Organization against allegations by prosecutors that the company had inflated property valuations to secure advantageous loans. The outcome of this trial could potentially jeopardize the Trump real estate empire’s ability to conduct business in New York.
Donald Trump Jr. appeared at ease, displaying confidence and good humor throughout his testimony. He even lightened the atmosphere with humorous comments, including joking about potential lawsuits for perjury and his dissatisfaction with courtroom sketch artists.
As the trial continues, the Trump family’s legal battles remain in the spotlight, with potential implications for their business ventures in New York.
