Forty-fifth President Donald Trump slammed far-left New York Attorney General Letitia “Peekaboo” James during a “Save America” rally in Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday as a “racist,” “raging maniac” who is “out of control.”
On Wednesday, James filed a civil lawsuit against Trump and his three adult children, accusing all of them of evading taxes, undervaluing properties, and more. James’s goal is to prevent Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr, and Eric Trump from executive positions of not only the Trump Organization, but any company in New York.
“There’s no better example of the left’s chilling obsession with targeting political opponents than the baseless, abusive, and depraved lawsuit against me, my family, and my company by the racist Attorney General of New York State, Letitia Peekaboo James,” Trump said at his rally.
“This raging maniac campaigned for office ranting and raving about her goal. Her only goal is we’ve gotta get Donald Trump. We’re gonna get him! She knew nothing about me. I never heard of her,” Trump continued.
“In fact, I was watching it and I said, ‘Boy, that woman is angry. I don’t think she likes me too much.’ All without having any evidence. She knew nothing about me. Before she had even begun her phony investigation, she went around boasting her plan to weaponize her office against me,” Trump said.
“Probably working with the Federal Government, of course. Declaring, ‘I look forward going into office of Attorney General of New York State every single day and suing him. I’m gonna sue him. I’m gonna go home and be so happy because I sued him,’” Trump added.
Trump also slammed James on his social media platform, Truth Social, on Thursday, writing, “Racist A.G. Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James, the failed Gubernatorial candidate, is now running second to strong crime fighter MICHAEL HENRY.”
“This could be a big upset because she has been a terrible A.G. when it comes to protecting the people of New York State. Murder, Rape, and Drugs are totally out of control-There has never been a more dangerous time than this. She is grossly incompetent, her staff knows it, and so does everyone else. MAKE NEW YORK SAFE AGAIN,” Trump added.
Trump, of course, is right. In 2018, when James was running for Attorney General, she promised to target “illegitimate President” Trump because he’s an “embarrassment,” as she said.
“I will never be afraid to challenge this illegitimate president. I believe that this president is incompetent. I believe that this president is ill-equipped to serve in the highest office of this land. And I believe that he is an embarrassment to all that we stand for,” James claimed.
