Trump says legal woes are a Biden, Democratic Party setup: 'new form of cheating'

Former President Donald Trump said Thursday that his “legal issues” have been “set up” by President Biden and the Democrats, declaring that it is “their new form of cheating” in the election.

Trump held a press conference at his Manhattan property at 40 Wall St. on Thursday after closing arguments were delivered in the non-jury civil trial stemming from New York Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit against him. 

James sued Trump, his family and his business empire, claiming he inflated his financial statements and deceived banks. Trump has denied any wrongdoing. The former president has repeatedly said his assets were actually undervalued. Trump has repeatedly said his financial statements had disclaimers, requesting that the numbers be evaluated by the banks.
