The judge presiding over the corporate fraud trial against former President Donald Trump in New York reprimanded him this Tuesday for publishing a personal attack against his secretarywho is present in the room, and limited his use of social networks.
Trump, who appeared in court for the second consecutive day, published a message on Truth Social, later deleted, in which romantically linked Engoron’s secretary to a Democratic senator and accused her of launching a politically motivated persecution against him.
The message, which I had a photo of the secretarywas published during the lunch break in the trial and deleted shortly after, but several media outlets picked it up, including the New York Post.
According to accredited media, the former president entered and left the courtroom several times during the break, which was initially going to last about two hours but lasted nearly three, and the parties appeared to meet behind closed doors with the judge, without any knew the reason.
It was clear upon return: Engoron denounced as “unacceptable and inappropriate” the “personal attacks” against his court staff and issued a “gag order” against “all parties,” which may sanction future messages containing references to workers.
