“Dumbest thing he could've done”: Experts say Trump’s Truth Social brag could backfire in court

March 23, 2024

Former President Donald Trump claimed on Truth Social that he has tons of cash days after his lawyers asked a court to stay his $454 million New York fraud judgment because he could not secure a bond. “Trump now claims that he has almost $500 million in cash, but his lawyers recently told the appellate court that he has no means to post a $454 million bond,” tweeted former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti. One of them is lying, and you can expect the court to ask Trump’s lawyers about this. AG Tish James can help herself, including to this supposed money!” wrote CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen. Everything that relates to him and all of that money is going to be tied up and frozen.
