Former President Donald Trump answered questions Thursday for about seven hours during his second legal deposition in a lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James about the Trump Organization.

Trump's attorney, Alina Habba, said her client was “not only willing but also eager to testify," according to the Associated Press.

James' lawsuit, which was filed last year, alleges the former president and his family deceived banks and different business associates by providing false information about his net worth and value of assets. 

According to a lawyer for Trump’s businesses, Christopher Kise, the former president had spent the seven hours “describing in detail his extraordinary business success.”

James' lawsuit is expected to go to trial in October.

Trump referred to the suit as "unjust" in a TRUTH Social post Thursday.

"Just arrived in Manhattan for a deposition in front of New York State’s RACIST, TRUMP HATING Attorney General, Letitia “Peekaboo” James, in another unjust & ridiculous persecution of The 45th President of the United States," he posted.

"I built a GREAT & prosperous company, employed thousands of people, built magnificent structures all over the World, but particularly in New York, & now have to prove it to this LOWLIFE who campaigned on a “I will get Trump” platform, even before knowing anything about me!"
