After current New York Attorney General Letitia James dropped out of the race for governor, President Trump released a statement claiming that she had acted unfavorably to him, “It’s called Prosecutorial Misconduct.”
James said in a statement last week, “I have come to the conclusion that I must continue my work as attorney general.”
“There are a number of important investigations and cases that are underway, and I intend to finish the job. I am running for re-election to complete the work New Yorkers elected me to do,” she said.
President Trump rebutted in his statement, “While she pretends that she suspended her short-lived campaign for New York Governor to go after me, she conveniently fails to mention that she couldn’t garner any support and her poll numbers were abysmal.”
It is rumored that the attorney general decided to stay in her position of power because of some high-profile cases investigating the alleged fraud in the Trump Organization, according to Politico.
Trump continued, “She was losing to Governor Hochul by what would have been a massive landslide. She didn’t drop out of the race for some higher purpose, or to “finishing exiting business” (I wonder what that would be?). She dropped out because her campaign was a complete failure.”
He also accused James of wasting taxpayer dollars on “witchhunts against the Republican Party and me.”
“She should focus her attention on helping to resurrect the once-great State of New York,” the 45th president said, “where crime and poverty continue to wreak havoc, with murder, rape, drug sales, and just about every other form of crime at record levels and now with a just-announced highest unemployment rate in the Nation.”
The polls showed James about 18 points behind incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul. Other Democrats are rumored to be entering the race, even outgoing Mayor Bill DeBlasio of New York City.
