Donald Trump has hit out at those who might seize his properties following his New York civil fraud trial as a key deadline looms on Monday.

The former president said that Judge Arthur Engoron and New York Attorney General Letitia James should not be allowed to take his assets, repeating his assertion that he has “done nothing wrong.” In February, Engoron ruled that Trump had to pay roughly $454 million, with interest included, in penalties for fraud.

Writing on Truth Social, his social media platform, Trump said: “Why should a Crooked, highly political New York Judge, Arthur Engoron, working in concert and coordination with an even more Corrupt Attorney General, Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James, his Puppet Master, and the White House, be allowed to take away, and sell off, very successful properties and assets that took me years to zone, build and nurture into some of the best of their kind anywhere in the World – WHEN I HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG!

“These Radical Left Lunatics and Communists ask me to pay a ridiculous and completely unheard of fine of over $450,000,000 only because they saw a similar amount in my bank account.

“I had intended to use much of that hard earned money on running for President. They don’t want me to do that — ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”

Trump has until March 25 to come up with a bond or James could begin seizing some of his assets and properties.

This is a breaking story. More to follow.
