Donald Trump raged ‘leave my children alone’ as he launched an early morning tirade against New York Judge Arthur Engoron while the ex-president’s eldest son prepares to testify today.
In one Truth post likely sent just as his Mar-a-Lago Halloween party was wrapping up in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Trump demanded the case be dismissed as he repeated he never inflated the value of his properties.
Donald Trump Jr., the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, is set to take the stand in New York court on Wednesday, but the former president is skipping out on coming to the Big Apple to support his son.
Trump’s middle son Eric is called to testify on Thursday. Then on Monday the ex-president is slated to take the stand, followed by his eldest daughter Ivanka, a former Trump Organization executive who has since stepped away from the business.
Meanwhile, Donald and former First Lady Melania Trump seemed unbothered by the upcoming testimonies while flashing smiles as they joined a raucous Halloween party at Mar-a-Lago Tuesday night.
The couple was pictured together Tuesday for the first time in five months. The two have been spotted together at other points since then, but no photos have been made public.
Melania Trump and son Barron were pictured leaving Trump Tower in New York on Donald Trump’s 77th birthday in June.
In a second post Wednesday morning, likely after a few hours of sleep, Trump wrote:
‘Judge Engoron is a political hack who ruled against me before the trial even started. He is doing the dirty work for the Democrat Party.’

Raging Truth posts come as Trump’s three eldest children are set to testify in the civil fraud case in New York. Donald Trump Jr. (pictured) will be the first to take the stand on Wednesday, followed by Eric Trump on Thursday, ex-President Trump on Monday and his daughter Ivanka next Wednesday
Although Don Jr. is set to testify in a Manhattan courtroom, his partner Kimberly Guilfoyle also appeared unfazed Tuesday night as she attended the ex-president’s Florida bash.
In an Instagram picture taken with an attendee in a Red Riding Hood costume, Guilfoyle beamed in a red and yellow Snow White tribute.
Making a grand entrance to Metallica’s metal hit ‘Enter Sandman’, Trump chose not to dress up, wearing a suit and his signature red tie as he gave a thumbs up to the cheering crowd.
Melania, also skipping out on a costume, donned a black dress paired with a neck choker and stilettos, waving at the resort’s guests while Trump could be seen pointing to one attendee and declaring: ‘There you go!’
Her appearance comes as a surprise to many, with the former First Lady notably absent from a number of landmark moments in recent times including all of Trump’s indictments this year. The pair were last seen in Easter when they lunched together at the Palm Beach club.
The couple appeared relaxed as they strolled through the dining room, despite several key family members preparing to take the stand in their father’s fraud trial in New York.
Trump raged on in a three-part tirade on his Truth Social platform that his former fixer attorney Michael Cohen said on the stand he was never instructed to inflate values for the Trump Organization.
‘SleazeBag Lawyer (for many people) Michael Cohen, admitted last week on the stand that he LIED, and also that your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, or anyone from the Trump Organization, NEVER TOLD HIM TO INFLATE VALUES ON FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, the opposite of what he told the A.G. in order to get this HOAX started,’ the ex-president wrote.
‘Leave my children alone, Engoron. You are a disgrace to the legal profession!’
He added in the third part of his raging posts: ‘Engoron is crazy, totally unhinged, and dangerous – Our Judicial System has gone to HELL.’
Mar-a-Lago launched into the Halloween spirit Tuesday evening as the ritzy resort was decked out in festive garb, as hilarious footage saw guests dressed as Joe Biden and his troubled son Hunter.
After not being pictured together for five months, Trump and former first lady Melania walked out and partied together at Mar-a-Lago’s Halloween party. The two have been seen together since June, but no pictures were made available from those times

Mar-a-Lago launched into the Halloween spirit as the ritzy resort was decked out in festive garb, as hilarious footage saw guests dressed as Joe Biden and his troubled son Hunter.
The former president was seen taking on DJ duties as the party stretched into the night, choosing songs from a Spotify playlist while guests danced around him.
When he walked into the golf club’s main room, Trump triumphantly raised his fists to the audience, seemingly unfazed by his sons imminent testimony over his business dealings at his fraud trial in New York.
Both sons took over the day-to-day handling of the Trump organization when their father was elected president, offering an intimate knowledge of the company’s inner workings.
Prosecutors allege that Trump artificially inflated his wealth by billions of dollars throughout his career to secure better deals on loans.

Notably, Trump has faced his high profile trial in Manhattan without his wife by his side, amid rumors that the couple have been living disjointed lives dating back to their time in the White House.
The last time the couple had been seen together was also at Mar-a-Lago, when they enjoyed an Easter brunch at the ritzy golf club on April 9, 2023.
At the time, Melania’s appearance was also cited as a rarity after she was missing when he was arraigned the week before for allegedly making hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Despite Melania failing to show up for that arraignment, her father, Viktor Knavs, was front and center when Trump made a combative speech following his arraignment.
Amid a media frenzy over her decision to skip, sources told DailyMail.com that Melania was hurt and angry by allegations that Trump had cheated on her with a porn star.
Following that first indictment, Melania has been MIA for her husband’s three subsequent legal battles.
Three months later in June, Trump was indicted in Florida for his alleged mishandling of classified government documents.
While he stared down another 40 criminal charges, Melania was again nowhere to be seen, amid reports she is spending most of her time in New York.
The last time Melania and Trump were seen together in April 2023, it came after she was notably missing from his indictment for alleged hush money payments the week before
In perhaps his most scrutinized court appearance yet, Trump captured headlines in August as he was indicted in both Washington DC and Georgia for alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
Although 18 accused co-conspirators were hauled down to the South to also face charges – leading to Trump’s historic mugshot image being taken – Melania declined to make the trip to lend her support.
Don Jr. and Eric were subpoenaed by Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James in the civil fraud case, as she alleges that Trump and his top executives exaggerated his wealth by billions to secure loans on his business deals.
After Ivanka takes the stand next week the state is expected to rest their case, offering Trump’s legal team the chance to mount a challenge and call their own witnesses.
