Former President Donald Trump has arrived in Manhattan for a deposition with New York Attorney General Letitia James. The deposition, which is set to take place on Thursday, will provide evidence that Trump and his children intentionally misrepresented the value of real estate properties to obtain favorable loans and tax benefits. James filed a lawsuit in New York State court in Manhattan accusing the former president and three of his children of fraud in September.

Trump blasted James on social media on Thursday, calling her "racist" and accusing her of leaking details about his arrival time for the deposition. He also criticized the lawsuit as "ridiculous" and claimed that he would use the case to prove his own business successes, according to the Daily Mail.

"I will be heading downtown to meet with a Racist who leaked that I would be there at 9:30 A.M. The leak makes it much more difficult for the Police and Secret Service to do their job," Trump posted to Truth.

"This civil case is ridiculous, just like all of the other Election Interference cases being brought against me. If I had a fair judge, this case would have never happened. MAGA!," he wrote. 

The former president faces another case in New York with District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who charged him with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to allegedly repay his former attorney, Michael Cohen. Trump is also suing Cohen.

In a federal lawsuit filed on Wednesday, Trump's legal team is seeking more than $500 million from Cohen for breaching his attorney-client relationship and unjust enrichment, among other allegations.

Trump's arrival in Manhattan on Thursday was met with a small group of protesters outside James' office, who held up a banner reading "No One Is Above the Law." The former president left Trump Tower and headed to James' downtown office, waving to crowds and pumping his fist in the air.

Throughout the day, Trump took to his Truth Social media platform to continue criticizing James and her case against him. He called the lawsuit "another unjust & ridiculous persecution of The 45th President of the United States" and accused James of campaigning on an "I will get Trump" platform.

Trump also said that he had built a "GREAT & prosperous company" and employed thousands of people, and that he would finally be able to prove it to James. He added that the case should be tried in front of the Commercial Division, not in front of a "highly partisan, Trump-hating judge."

"I built a GREAT & prosperous company, employed thousands of people, built magnificent structures all over the World, but particularly in New York, & now have to prove it to this LOWLIFE who campaigned on [an] ‘I will get Trump’ platform, even before knowing anything about me!" Trump wrote.

He added: "I will finally be able to show what a great, profitable, and valuable company I built, actually, some of the greatest real estate assets anywhere in the world."
