CHICAGO — A Chicago federal judge is scolding Donald Trump and an attorney questioning the developer-turned-TV personality to stop their verbal “boxing match.”
The warning came today during Trump’s second day testifying at a civil trial. He’s accused of making false promises to an investor in his Trump International Hotel & Tower in downtown Chicago.
Trump and the plaintiff’s attorney, Shelly Kulwin, repeatedly talked over each other. A visibly agitated Trump scowled, and Kulwin rolled his eyes at Trump’s answers.
After an hour, Judge Amy St. Eve told the men, “This is not a boxing match.”
After jurors left the room, the judge said Trump’s testimony would run into a third day if the sparring continued. She told them, “Let’s get control of ourselves.”
Trump hosts the reality television show, “The Apprentice.”
