Trump’s NY Civil ‘Fraud’ Trial Ruling Triggers Backlash: ‘Un-American’ – ‘Banana Republic’

On Friday, radical New York Judge Arthur Engoron delivered his ruling on the Democrats’ civil “fraud” trial against President Donald Trump.

Unsurprisingly, Engoron hit Trump with a grotesquely partisan verdict.

Engoron found Trump liable for over $350 million in damages and barred him from running his businesses in the state for three years.

However, the judge’s decision triggered an immediate backlash on social media and was slammed as “blatantly un-American” and “more fitting in a banana republic” than in this country.

The ruling came Friday afternoon at the end of a months-long civil fraud trial brought against the 45th president, his family, and the Trump Organization.

The case was led by New York Attorney General Letitia James, a career Democrat who ran her election campaign on a “get-Trump” promise.

In a statement following Engoron’s decision, Trump issued a statement declaring:

“A crooked New York judge working with the very corrupt attorney general of New York State, who ran on the basis of ‘I will get Trump’ before knowing me — before even knowing anything about me — just ruled that I have to pay a fine of $355 million based on absolutely nothing.”

Trump noted that the politically motivated case was stacked against him from the beginning and served only to to target the main threat to Democrat President Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign.

“No victims. No damages,” he highlighted.

“Great financial statements, with full disclaimer clauses, only success.”

Conservatives and Trump allies took to X to voice their similar discontent with the New York court’s ruling.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) trashed the ruling, saying:

“The New York case against President Trump is a farce.”

“And the continued lawfare isn’t about justice or the law — it’s pure politics,” he added.

“It’s more fitting in a banana republic than America.”

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich described it as “An absolutely despicable political persecution with zero basis.

“Blatantly un-American.”

Conservative entertainer and podcast host Chad Prather called the case a “WITCH HUNT.”

“Corrupt Judge Engoron has ordered a total fine in the Trump New York Fraud case to be $364M and a 3-year ban on real estate in New York,” he added.

“Trump’s support will go higher. Don’t do biz in a blue state.”

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) declared:

“This is what lawfare looks like.

“This isn’t justice — this is injustice.”

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton wrote:

“The persecution of Trump by Democratic politicians Judge Engoron and Letitia James is a massive scandal.

“Both have misused their public offices to try to rig an election and violate the civil rights of Trump and his family.

“Engoron’s outrageous decision to impose unprecedented fines on Trump, while effectively destroying his business, is one of the worst abuses of judicial power in modern American history.  #BananaRepublic #ElectionInterference”

“This case wasn’t brought to vindicate any harm suffered by anyone, because no one suffered any harm It was brought to inflict pain on Donald Trump,” conservative commentator Will Chamberlain said.

And former Democrat Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich claimed:

“Of course, the Trump family got screwed in the NY court by Judge Engoron, the partisan Democrat political hack.

“Trump never had a chance.

“It’s another example of a politicized court butchering the rule of law, suffocating justice, and turning America into a fascist country.”

After the ruling, Trump’s attorney Alina Habba appeared on Newsmax where she blasted the verdict.

“Corruption runs deep,” she warns.
