Trump appears for day 2 of New York fraud trial, says AG should instead focus on crime, immigrants

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared for a second day in a row before New York Judge Arthur Engoron in Manhattan for his civil fraud trial on charges brought by Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James, whom he slammed for prosecuting him rather than focusing on crime and illegal immigrants.

Before heading into the courtroom Tuesday, Trump called James "grossly incompetent" and said Engoron was using "misleading information and corrupt information" for the case.  

Engoron ruled last week that the former president was responsible for defrauding banks and insurers by inflating the value of his properties, which would have secured benefits such as better loan terms and cheaper insurance.
