Judge scolds Trump, attorney during testimony

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.”
