In a dramatic turn at the Manhattan Court on Monday, November 13, Donald Trump Jr. took the stand to defend his father, portraying the former US president as a visionary “artist of real estate” amidst a $250 million civil fraud trial.
Facing friendly questioning from Trump’s defense lawyers, Don Jr., 45, aimed to counter New York Attorney General Letitia James’ allegations that the Trump family, the Trump Organization, and executives falsified financial statements for a decade to manipulate banks and secure advantageous loan and insurance terms.
The testimony shed light on Trump’s real estate acumen, with Don Jr. emphasizing his father’s ability to perceive potential where others couldn’t.
The defense presented a slideshow titled “The Trump Story,” tracing the family’s real estate history to Don Jr.’s great-grandfather.
According to Don Jr., Trump learned valuable business insights from his grandfather and transformed New York City and Manhattan into what he saw as the ultimate frontier.
The defense strategically used visuals to showcase the family’s real estate empire, illustrating Trump’s impact on the development industry with luxury amenities.
Don Jr. shared anecdotes about various Trump Organization properties, passionately describing Trump World Tower in Manhattan, the Trump National Golf Course in West Palm Beach, Florida, and the transformation of a “flat swamp” into the renowned Trump National Golf Course.
Despite objections from New York government lawyers, the court allowed the presentation, citing its relevance for historical context.
Justice Arthur Engoron permitted Don Jr. to extol the virtues of the Trump Organization, setting the stage for a robust defense in the ongoing legal battle.
