The eye-popping judgment against former President Trump in his New York fraud case has laid bare his precarious financial status, a matter that has sent the notoriously incensed real estate mogul off the rails.

In Truth Social posts, Trump has laid out mini diatribes lambasting the judge and attorney general in the case, claiming they want to swindle him out of precisely the amount of cash he has on hand to the tune of half a billion dollars.

Trump is known for his online rants and raucous rallies that frequently whip up his base, but the $454 million bond he must pay – or face the possibility of his assets being seized – appears to have sent the former president over the edge.

“They do not care about the Law, the facts, or anything, but tying up my money, and interfering in the Election!!” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post on Wednesday. “This case should be OVER, but instead, the Attorney General wants to abuse her power to steal my money!!”

Former aides said Trump appears to be particularly incensed by the New York fraud trial because of how personal the stakes are.
