“…I can finally show you a great, profitable and valuable company that I’ve built with some of the largest real estate assets anywhere in the world,” Trump said in another Truth social post on Thursday.

Trump, who is seeking re-election in 2024, was indicted earlier this month by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.

He was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records before the 2016 election after he allegedly paid two women to suppress disclosure of sexual encounters with him.
