A lawsuit from the New York attorney general is the latest legal headache for former President Trump and arguably the most personal, as it targets both his business and his image as a skilled dealmaker.

The lawsuit has triggered a furious response from Trump, but many Republicans think it could ultimately solidify Republican support as he mulls whether to run for president in 2024.

“They’ve demeaned me for years with this stuff. And now they find out that I have very little debt — very, very little — a lot of cash,” Trump told Sean Hannity of Fox News this week. “We have a great company, and we have among the best assets anywhere in the world. But I went through, they were demeaning me, you know, constantly these people. There’s something wrong with them. I really believe they hate our country.”

Trump has spent days posting criticisms of New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) on his Truth Social platform, demeaning her as a “racist” and sharing old videos of James pledging to go after him if elected.
