WASHINGTON, DC: Donald Trump declared on Monday, March 25 that he had never taken cash from a foreign government to cover his legal expenses, according to BBC.

A reporter questioned the former president about whether he took money from a foreign country to pay the bail, the fines, or any other legal fees after a New York appeals court decided that Trump had ten days to pay a reduced bond of $175 million in his civil fraud case, according to The Recount.

Trump states he didn't take money from foreign government

Trump replied to the reporter, "No, I don't do that. I think you'd be allowed to, possibly. I don't know. I mean, if you go borrow from a big bank, many of the banks are outside of this — as you know, the biggest banks, frankly, are outside of our country, so you could do that, but I don't need to borrow money. I have a lot of money."



 

In February, Judge Arthur Engoron rendered a decision ordering the former president to pay the state of New York a financial penalty totaling around $450 million, including interest, for falsifying financial statements about his holdings and fortune to deceive banks, insurers, and other parties.

Trump's business empire appeared to be more vulnerable on Monday, March 25, than it had ever been. Still, in terms of Trump's fortune, it was the largest day ever recorded. After a 29-month merger procedure, the Trump Media & Technology Group's shares are now officially valued at billions of dollars.

Trump allegedly saw a $4 billion increase in his net worth on Monday alone, bringing his wealth to $6.5 billion.
