Trump vows to fight New York AG case 'all the way up to the US Supreme Court,' as deadline to post $454M looms

EXCLUSIVE: Former President Trump said he will fight the ruling out of New York Attorney General Letitia James’ case "all the way up to the U. S. Supreme Court if necessary," telling Fox News Digital that "they can’t take away your property before you’ve had a chance to appeal."

Trump, the 2024 presumptive GOP presidential nominee, and his legal team have appealed and requested a stay on his $454 million civil fraud judgment. He is required to post that bond by Monday.

Trump said Engoron "openly and hostilely disrespects the decision of the appellate division, which ruled in my favor."

"Hopefully they will set the record straight — he has already been overturned four times on this case," Trump said. "A record.

Trump added: "The business community in New York is being devastated by this decision and businesses are fleeing New York — never to return, because they don’t want this to happen to them. In the meantime, violent crime is flourishing."... (Read more)
