WATCH: Trump lays into ‘corrupt’ New York AG Letitia James for being ‘stuck’ off campaign trail at fraud trial

Former President Donald Trump laid into Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James after leaving a Lower Manhattan Court on Wednesday, the third day of his civil fraud trial concerning the alleged overvaluation of his assets.

After exiting the courtroom, Trump stopped to address members of the media waiting outside and lamented being “stuck” at the trial rather than campaigning for president. He accused James of coordinating with the Justice Department to keep him off the campaign trail.

“I’m here, stuck here, and I can’t campaign. I’d rather be right now in Iowa. I’d rather be in New Hampshire or South Carolina or Ohio or a lot of other places. But I’m stuck here because I have a corrupt attorney general that communicates with the DOJ in Washington to keep me nice and busy, because I’m leading Biden in the polls by a lot,” Trump said.
