Conservatives on social media are slamming Judge Arthur Engoron over his decision to deny former President Donald Trump’s trial after the loss of his mother-in-law.

According to Republic Defenders, the former president lost his mother-in-law following an undisclosed illness. The loss prompted the former president to ask Engoron to delay the ongoing case till after the funeral arrangement.

Engoron, who is currently presiding over the former president’s New York civil case has issued many rulings against the former president. Engoron continued that trend when he denied the former president’s request.

The judge’s decision to deny Trump’s request drew fierce backlash from Republicans, with Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) describing the civil trial as a joke.

“This trial has been a joke from the beginning and not delaying it because of a death in the immediate family only solidifies Judge Engoron’s political agenda,” Daines wrote on X.

“Can our ‘justice system’ stoop any lower? President Trump’s mother-in-law sadly passed away and leftist Judge Engoron just denied Trump’s request to postpone closing arguments. May First Lady Melania’s mother rest in peace and God, help our country!!,” Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) wrote on X.

Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) accused Engoron of being soulless for denying Trump’s request.

“These people are soulless. ‘Trump asked the court to postpone closing arguments due to the passing of his mother-in-law, but was denied,” Tuberville wrote.

Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) said the decision is another instance of hostility and bias against the former president.

“As a NY lawyer and daughter of a long-time serving NYS Supreme Court Justice, judges universally accommodate parties and/or their lawyers for unavoidable personal issues especially the death of a family member, Tenney wrote on X. “Judge Engoron’s contemptible decision to hold closing arguments immediately following @melaniatrump’s mother passing away is another instance of hostility and bias against President Trump.”

“Rep. Jim Banks said the decision proves that the trial is all about hatred of the former president and what he stands for,” Banks wrote. “President Trump’s mother-in-law passed away and the radical leftist judge in NYC is refusing to delay closing arguments a couple of days to accommodate the Trump family. This is all about HATRED of President Trump and everything he stands for!”
