Martina Navratilova condemns Donald Trump as a ‘coward’ for avoiding civil fraud trial testimony

Martina Navratilova, renowned for her tennis prowess and activism, has condemned Donald Trump, calling him a “coward” for refusing to testify in his civil fraud trial. The lawsuit, filed by the New York Attorney General, accuses Trump and his company of deceiving banks and insurers by inflating his wealth on financial statements. Despite these allegations, Trump has denied any wrongdoing and criticized the judge and attorney general involved. While the trial has sparked significant controversy, Navratilova has publicly expressed her disapproval of Trump’s political ambitions, labeling his proposed policy agenda as a “disaster.” Trump’s plans include controversial measures such as mass deportations, bans on Chinese and Muslim visitors, and restrictions on transgender health care and education. Given Navratilova’s ardent advocacy for LGBTQ rights and democracy, her scathing criticism of Trump’s agenda comes as no surprise.
