In order to pay the judgment in his New York civil fraud lawsuit, former President Donald Trump posted a $175 million bond on Monday. The original bond was set at a whopping $454 million.

With the payment, the 2024 GOP presidential nominee has now most likely averted the worst-case scenario of having his assets seized and his bank accounts frozen.
