New York, USA - In a recent announcement on social media platform Truth Social, former President Donald Trump declared that he will not be testifying for a second time at his ongoing civil fraud trial in New York. Trump confidently claimed that he had already given a successful and conclusive testimony last month, stating that there is no need for him to appear again.

Scheduled to take the witness stand as the final major defense witness, Trump's decision not to testify may have significant implications for the trial. The lawsuit, brought forth by New York Attorney General Letitia James, poses a threat to Trump's real estate empire and strikes at the core of his public persona as a prosperous businessman.

In his multipart statement posted on Truth Social, Trump emphasized his decision by writing, "I WILL NOT BE TESTIFYING ON MONDAY" in all capital letters. He further reiterated his belief that James and other Democrats are wielding the legal system as a political weapon against him, hindering his chances of reclaiming the White House.

During his previous testimony on November 6, Trump displayed a defiant and combative demeanor. Alongside vehemently defending his wealth and repeatedly denying any wrongdoing, he engaged in heated exchanges with Judge Arthur Engoron, who he criticized as an "extremely hostile judge." Additionally, he referred to James as "a political hack."

Throughout the approximately 3½ hours of questioning by state lawyers, Trump provided lengthy responses, often deviating into tangential diatribes. This verbose style frustrated Judge Engoron, who sternly reminded Trump that the courtroom was not a political rally.

Although Trump's defense lawyers would have led the questioning had he returned to the stand on Monday, state lawyers would have had the opportunity to cross-examine him, potentially unearthing new insights into the case.
