Speaking outside the Manhattan courthouse where the civil fraud trial brought forth by New York Attorney General Letitia James against 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, his family, and business, son Eric Trump told reporters, "we’re going to win this thing."

"We have come of the best assets in New York. We’ve never had a default. We’ve never missed a loan payment. We have thousands of employees, there are thousands of employees that rely on our company every single day to put food in their mouths in the state of New York," Trump said, noting the "witch hunt" against his father and family.

"We’ve done absolutely nothing wrong, we have a better company than they could ever imagine. And this is a big charade that is a huge waste of taxpayer money, and is the very reason everyone is moving out of New York State."

This state is absolutely going to hell and it’s because of people like the attorney general of New York," he added, noting crimes across the state and especially in New York City.

"New York is failing, and we’ve got to bring our state back to life. And charades like this have to stop because the only reason she’s doing this is she wants to run for another political position or she wants to fundraise for her own political campaigns," Trump said.

"We're going to win this thing. I promise you we're going to win it because we haven't done a damn thing wrong."

The comments came after Eric Trump took the stand on Friday morning, being questioned about his involvement in his father’s financial statements that he signed for.

"I believe everything in the statements was accurate," Eric Trump said, adding that what Deutsche Bank did with the statements was "within their purview."

Assistant Attorney General Andrew Amer asked Trump if he intended for the compliance certificate he submitted with forms to Deutsche Bank to be accurate, to which he replied, "I would not sign something that was not accurate," according to CNN.

"I relied on our accounting office. I relied on one of the biggest accounting firms in the country and I relied on a great legal team, and when they gave me comfort that the statement was perfect, I was more than happy to execute it."

Eric Trump's brother, Donald Trump Jr, testified before the court room on Wednesday, saying that the Trump Organization "relied heavily" on former accountant Donald Benter, saying, Bender "worked for us for decades. He handled practically everything. He was an outside accountant that we relied heavily on for our accounting needs,"
