Trump Warns of Big Losses From Asset Sales During Property Slump

March 01, 2024

A brutal market for many commercial property owners means he faces significant losses in his real estate empire if he unloads assets. To get an appeal bond, Trump will need to hand over cash, sell properties or use them as collateral, tying up most if not all of his liquid assets for months or longer. Unless Trump can convince the appeals court to put the verdict on hold during his entire appeal, he could find himself in a financial squeeze. A frenetic rally in a stock tied to Trump Media & Technology Group has minted a nearly $4 billion windfall for Trump. A full appeals court panel could rule any time after that.
