President Trump didn’t hold anything back in his latest statement.
In a statement titled “the Political Persecution of Donald J. Trump”, Trump stated the Supreme Court’s latest decision to allow his taxes to be looked at by NYC prosecutors is a direct attack from Democrats who are “headhunters” looking to use the law as a weapon against their political opponents.
He also said that NYC’s investigation on his taxes is just a continuation of the Russian witch hunt and “Crazy Nancy’s” failed impeachment attempts.
Trump concluded the letter by saying “despite all the election crimes that were committed against me, We will win!”.
My friends we have his full statement below, and I must say you got to read this:

OANN covered Trump’s statement see what they had to say:
President Trump called the Supreme Court’s recent decision to allow the release of his tax returns “continuing political persecution.” In a statement on Monday, he said the decision is “Democrat-inspired.”
The 45th President also asserted New York officials are distracting the public from the actual crime in the city, where violence has been reaching new record highs.
President Trump continued, noting the move was politically motivated. He then compared it to the Mueller probe, where Democrats tried to accuse him of collaborating with Russia during the 2016 election.
Nonetheless, President Trump promised he would continue to “fight on” just like he did throughout his presidency. Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. also blasted the court’s decision as another witch hunt against his father.

Fox News didn’t stay silent and had this to say:
Former President Trump on Monday slammed the Supreme Court for declining to halt the turnover of his tax records to a New York prosecutor, calling it “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country.”
The court’s action is the apparent culmination of a lengthy legal battle that had already reached the high court once before.
Trump’s tax records are not supposed to become public as part of prosecutor’s criminal investigation, but the high court’s action is a blow to Trump because he has for so long fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view. The ongoing investigation the records are part of could also become an issue for Trump in his life after the presidency. Trump has called it “a fishing expedition” and “a continuation of the witch hunt.”
Instead of investigating Trump, NYC prosecutors should go after Gov. Andrew Cuomo for hiding the amount of Nursing Home deaths in New York.
I’m sure Democrat’s will use this win in the Supreme Court to distract people from looking at their mess they created in New York.
