Trump's Niece Says Her Uncle's 'Flailing Accordion Hands' Signals Humiliation Because 'His Net Worth Was Exposed'

Zinger Key Points
  • Donald Trump says his Mar-a-Lago residence could be worth up to 100 times as much as the $18 million valuation used by NY court judge.
  • The case seeks to debar Trump and his companies from doing business in New York.

Donald Trump’s niece Mary Trump took aim at her uncle amid the events that are unfolding in the wake of his civil lawsuit in New York.

What Happened: “While Donald [Trump] admitted on TV he undervalued his assets….his flailing accordion hands mean he’s humiliated because his net worth was exposed,” Mary Trump said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

The fraud trial entered its third day as Donald Trump’s lawyers tried to shift the blame of misrepresenting the financials on auditors. But lawyers of New York Attorney General Letitia James argued that the accountants relied on information provided by Trump and his company. James has accused Donald Trump and his company of fraudulently overstating the financials for procuring loans.

The former president claimed in a video clip shared by Mary Trump that the “highly partisan Democrat Judge” has wrongly apprised the Mar-a-Lago residence as valued at $18 million while in reality, it is worth up to 100 times as much.

Why It’s Important: Attorney General James is striving to ban Donald Trump and his companies from doing business in New York. This is one of the multiple legal challenges the former president is facing. These trials are scheduled to start over the first half of 2024 and will likely interfere with his campaign schedule.

Donald Trump is contesting in the Republican presidential primary race and is leading a crowded field as he seeks a second term in office.

In a separate substack post, Mary Trump said she would take part in the New Republic’s “The Stop Trump Summit” to be held on Oct. 11 in New York City.

“We'll examine the disasters of Trump's first term, the state of the legal cases against him, his own strange psychology and that of his MAGA followers, the messaging and polling on his 2024 campaign—everything concerned American citizens want to know about making sure he never takes office again,” she said.
