President Donald Trump lashed out at New York’s governor and attorney general Monday, accusing the Democrats of going after him in a “political Witch Hunt.”
In four tweets, Trump accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Letitia James of “harassing all of my New York businesses in search of anything at all they can find to make me look as bad as possible.”
It wasn’t immediately clear what prompted the barrage, which came the day after Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to step into North Korea.
A James predecessor, Eric Schneiderman, sued the Trump Foundation a year ago last month, alleging it was improperly involved in the president’s political campaign and private business affairs. Her office has continued that suit.
James is also investigating whether Trump exaggerated his wealth to obtain loans. She issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank seeking loan applications and other records related to Trump real estate projects and his failed 2014 bid to buy the Buffalo Bills.
The Trump Organization didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
