Trump secures $175 million bond in New York civil fraud case.

Former President Trump Posts $175 Million Bond in Fraud Case

In a recent development, former President Donald Trump has managed to secure his assets by posting a $175 million bond in a civil fraud case in New York. This action prevents the seizure of his assets during the pending appeal process.

Reduction in Bond Amount After Court Ruling

The bond posting follows a decision by a state appeals court last week, which required Trump and his co-defendants to post the reduced amount within 10 days. Originally facing a $464 million judgment due by March 25, the bond amount was decreased to $175 million.

Looming Financial Obligations for Trump

Prior to the court’s ruling, Trump was facing a liability of $454 million, primarily from the fraud judgment. This amount was escalating daily by over $111,000 due to accrued interest.
