According to a Newsweek article published on August 5, 2023, Trump was "screaming and yelling" at his children after their testimony, which he believed was damaging to his case. He was also reportedly upset with his lawyers for not preparing his children better for the trial.

A source close to Trump told Newsweek that the former president was "very disappointed" in his children, and that he believed they had "failed" him. The source also said that Trump was "furious" with his lawyers, and that he believed they had "betrayed" him.

The New York Attorney General's Office is alleging that Trump and his company engaged in a "decade-long pattern of fraudulent and deceptive conduct" by inflating the value of their assets. The Attorney General's Office is seeking to bar Trump and the Trump Organization from doing business in New York and to recover $250 million in damages.

Trump has denied all allegations of wrongdoing. He has accused the New York Attorney General's Office of conducting a politically motivated witch hunt.

The testimony from Trump's children could be used by the prosecution to show that Trump was aware of and involved in the alleged fraudulent activities. For example, Donald Trump Jr. testified that he was aware of his father's practice of inflating the value of his assets, and that he had discussed this practice with his father on multiple occasions.

Trump's anger over his children's testimony is likely to make it more difficult for him to defend himself against the allegations of fraud. The fact that his own children are testifying against him could damage his credibility with the jury.

The trial is expected to last for several weeks. It will be up to the jury to decide whether Trump and the Trump Organization are guilty of fraud.
