Former President Donald Trump has posted the $175 million bond in his New York civil business fraud case. With the payment, he has avoided a situation whereby the state seizes his assets as his lawyers appeal Judge Arthur Engoron’s judgment in which he was slammed with a $350 million fine. The penalty, in total, was increased to $464 million including interest.

Trump revealed the new development in a post on Truth Social, in which he wrote, “I’ve just posted a 175 Million Dollar Bond with the sadly failing and very troubled State of New York, based on a Corrupt Judge and Attorney General who used a Statute that was never used for this before, where no Jury was allowed, my financial statements were conservative and had a 100% perfect caution/non-reliance clause, there were no victims (except me!), there was no crime or damage, there was only success and HAPPY BANKS.”

Trump was initially meant to post a bond of about $550 million, 120% of the total penalty while the appeals play out on the ruling. However, a N​​ew York appeals court reduced the pledge to $175 million and gave him 10 days to come up with it.

After the appeal court’s decision to reduce the bond, Trump said that he would be posting the full amount in cash.

In his announcement of his bond payment on Monday night, Trump repeated his criticisms of the case, slamming them as “election interference” and a :witch hunt” as usual.

“The case was a fabricated ELECTION INTERFERENCE con job, so bad for New York, where businesses are fleeing & violent crime is flourishing. The Crooked Judge, to suit his narrative, valued Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, at $18,000,000, when it is worth 50 to 100 times that amount. He ruled I was guilty before he ever saw the case,” she stated.

“He should be disbarred, and Letitia James, who campaigned on getting TRUMP, Impeached. Also posted a 91 Million Dollar Bond on another New York Fake Case, money I can’t use on my campaign. Just what Crooked Joe wanted. WITCH HUNT!” she added.
