Trump Defends Himself and Honors Veterans in Memorial Day Post


Donald Trump utilized a Memorial Day post to lambaste a federal judge and E. Jean Carroll, who recently secured a defamation verdict against him.

In a Monday morning post on Truth Social, Trump’s media platform, the former president attacked Carroll and the judge overseeing the case. In January, Trump was mandated to pay $83.3 million in a defamation lawsuit stemming from his denial of Carroll’s claim that he raped her in the mid-1990s.

“Happy Memorial Day to All, including the Human Scum that is working so hard to destroy our Once Great Country, & to the Radical Left, Trump Hating Federal Judge in New York that presided over, get this, TWO separate trials, that awarded a woman, who I never met before (a quick handshake at a celebrity event, 25 years ago, doesn’t count!), 91 MILLION DOLLARS for ‘DEFAMATION,’” Trump wrote.

“She didn’t know when the so-called event took place — sometime in the 1990’s — never filed a police report, didn’t have to produce the ‘dress’ that she threatened me with (it showed negative!), & sung my praises in the first half of her CNN Interview with Alison Cooper, but changed her tune in the second half — Gee, I wonder why (UNDER APPEAL!)? The Rape charge was dropped by a jury!”

In addition to U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who presided over the Carroll case, Trump also criticized New York Judge Arthur Engoron, the presiding judge in a case against the Trump Organization.

Trump’s post about his legal issues was followed by another Memorial Day post showing a picture of the former president saluting what appears to be the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier alongside a message commemorating U.S. military personnel who have died while serving.
