( – Investor Kevin O’Leary, known for his participation on “Shark Tank” blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) over her push to seize former President Donald Trump’s assets following the ruling in his civil fraud trial. 

In an appearance on Friday, March 22, O’Leary told “The Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham that the Constitution has 37 mentions of property rights, and questions why James would attempt to steal someone’s assets within 27 days. He proceeded to ask why she would not allow more time for Trump to come up with the money. 

O’Leary proceeded to say that his perspective in this case did not relate to Trump at all, but rather that the case was about the dissolution of “the American brand” essence. The investor is currently looking to construct a data center in the United States and is traveling around the globe in order to raise $3 billion. 

O’Leary pointed out that the first question that he is always asked when visiting other countries in order to raise capital, has to do with what is going on in New York. In response, he usually tells them that this is not representative of the United States and that it is just an “anomaly.” 

Earlier this month, James’ office filed judgments where it was shown that Trump’s private estate and golf resort would be the first assets that they would look to seize. Trump initially had only until Monday, March 25, to pay off a $454 million bond. However, a New York court this week gave him a 10-day extension and lowered the bond to $175 million.
