Donald Trump’s interaction with the public at large has been largely diminished after he returned to Mar-a-Lago after his first term in the Oval Office. Not only is he surely enjoying a bit of a reprieve from the constant, daily grind of being the leader of the free world, but he has also been largely muted by the media.
CNN and the like are only covering the bits and pieces of Trump’s story that fit their agenda, and social media companies continue to refuse to give Trump an outlet on their platforms.
Trump has been forced to use his political action committee to issue press statements in the interim.
On Monday, after a ruling by the Supreme Court that could allow New York prosecutors access to Trump’s personal tax returns, the ex-President emailed out a statement blaming Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Former President Donald Trump lashed out at the Supreme Court on Monday after it declined to stop the release of his tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, saying the decision allows the “greatest political Witch Hunt” in the country’s history to continue.
“Whether it was the never ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, ‘Russia Russia Russia,’ where there was a finding of ‘No Collusion,’ or two ridiculous ‘Crazy Nancy’ inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY. It just never ends!,” Trump said in an emailed statement.
That wasn’t all…
“So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S.,” Trump continued in the statement.
“The Supreme Court never should have let this ’fishing expedition’ happen, but they did.”
The former president then went on to suggest it was part of a vendetta by Democrats and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a heavily reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo,” Trump said.
Trump and Cuomo have been at each other’s throats for years, but their longstanding feud was turbocharged by Cuomo’s daily coronavirus briefings back in the first half of 2020, in which the Empire State Governor often used his time to steer the conversation toward presidential politics.
