It is safe to say that former U.S. president Trump is not happy with the results of his fraud case, which was brought against him by New York State Attorney General Letitia James.

Speaking on the verdict, Trump said, "A crooked New York State just ruled that I have to pay a fine of $355 million for having built a perfect company. Great cash, great buildings, great everything."

Trump then blasted AG Letitia James as corrupt, claiming that she campaigned on the fact that "I will get Trump, I will get Trump."

The business mogul then described the verdict as something that has never been seen in the United States of America.

"This is Russia, this is China, this is the same game. It all comes out of the DOJ; it all comes out of Biden. It is a witch hunt against his political opponent, the likes of which our country has never seen before. You see it in third-world countries, banana republics, but you don't see it here."

He then proceeded to state that he planned to appeal the verdict and used the opportunity to campaign against President Joe Biden, claiming that he would have never been hit with lawsuits if he weren't running for president.

Over on his app Truth Social, Trump echoed the same sentiments, writing: "A Crooked New York State Judge, working with a totally Corrupt Attorney General who ran on the basis of 'I will get Trump,' before knowing anything about me or my company, has just fined me $355 Million based on nothing other than having built a GREAT COMPANY. ELECTION INTERFERENCE. WITCH HUNT."
