Trump’s lawyer suggested his client has taken his social media posts against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg too far. While former President Donald Trump is no stranger to making controversial comments online — even leading him to be banned from social media platforms like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook for a time — some of his recent posts against Bragg, who may be bringing hush-money charges against Trump, have raised concerns.
One post on Trump’s Truth Social platform featured a composite picture of the former president and the district attorney, with Trump swinging a baseball bat in Bragg’s direction. It was later taken down. But in another post, Trump referred to Bragg as an “animal,” which has been called out for racist undertones. Trump has also called those prosecuting him “human scum.”
“‘I think that was an ill-advised post.’”
