According to a report by AP News on Monday, October 2, 2023, former President Donald Trump took to his new social media platform, Truth Social, to rage ahead of his trial in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ fraud lawsuit.
The former president, who has denied the allegations, is expected to face allegations that he, his adult sons, and their family business inflated his wealth by billions to secure favorable terms from banks.
However, a legal expert has warned that the judge overseeing the case is becoming increasingly frustrated with Trump’s behavior on social media.
The former president’s tweets and posts on Truth Social have been increasingly erratic and inflammatory, leading the judge to question his fitness to stand trial.
Trump is eventually expected to be called to testify in the case.
However, his behavior on social media has raised concerns about his ability to remain calm and composed under questioning.
The judge has reportedly expressed concerns about Trump’s mental state and his ability to participate in the trial.
The legal expert, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the judge is becoming increasingly frustrated with Trump’s behavior on social media.
“The judge is very concerned about Mr. Trump’s mental state and his ability to participate in the trial,” the expert said.
“He is becoming increasingly frustrated with Mr. Trump’s behavior on social media, which is erratic and inflammatory.
The judge is worried that Mr. Trump’s behavior could jeopardize the fairness of the trial.”
The expert added that the judge is considering a number of options to address Trump’s behavior on social media.
“The judge is exploring a number of options, including limiting Mr. Trump’s access to social media during the trial,” the expert said.
“He is also considering appointing a special master to monitor Mr. Trump’s social media activity and report back to the court.”
The expert said that the judge’s concerns are not unfounded.
“Mr. Trump’s behavior on social media has been increasingly erratic and inflammatory,” the expert said.
“He has been making baseless claims and attacking his opponents in a way that is not conducive to a fair trial.
The judge is right to be concerned about this.”
The expert added that Trump’s behavior on social media could also have legal consequences.
“If Mr. Trump continues to make inflammatory statements on social media, he could be held in contempt of court,” the expert said.
“This could result in fines or even jail time.”
