Back in September, James announced that she had filed a civil lawsuit for $250 million against Trump with the Manhattan Supreme Court. It alleged that "Trump, his family, and the Trump [Organization] used fraudulent and misleading asset valuations over 200 times in 10 years on his annual financial statements."

Now, Trump has clapped back with a lawsuit of his own in yet another attempt to derail his growing legal woes.

On Wednesday, Trump's team requested that a court in Florida block James' access to his revocable trust, which took ownership of the Trump Organization when he became president.

The suit claims that James is attempting to "steal, destroy or control all things Trump" and accuses her of using "intimidation and harassment."

"These are private matters to President Trump, and under Florida law, revelation of a settler's revocable trust while the settler is still alive threatens the settler's right to privacy guaranteed by Article I, Section 23 of the Florida Constitution and the common law," the suit also states.

Trump announced his suit on Truth Social, where he bashed New York as "one of the most crime-ridden places on earth" and accused James of trying to "pry" into his private estate plans and "recklessly injure me, my family, my business, and my tens of millions of supporters."
