Trump storms out of court during closing arguments in damages trial

US News

Donald Trump stormed out of a courtroom on Friday as closing arguments began in a damages trial in New York.

A jury found Trump liable last year for sexually abusing E Jean Carroll in a New York department store in the 1990s and defaming her after she wrote about the incident.

The current trial focuses only on what damages Trump will have to pay for defaming Ms Carroll, 80.

She is seeking at least $10m in compensatory damages and an unspecified amount in punitive damages. The jury could reach a verdict as early as today.

“The record will reflect that Mr Trump just rose and walked out of the courtroom,” District Judge Lewis Kaplan said after Trump left during Ms Carroll’s lawyer’s closing arguments.

The former president left as her lawyer told jurors Trump is a liar who thinks “the rules don’t apply to him”.
