Former U.S. President Donald Trump is facing a crucial deadline this Monday. He must post a bond worth $454 million as part of a civil judgment against him in a New York state case. Trump’s lawyers have informed the court that raising such a large sum of money is simply impossible.

Trump’s wealth, which includes cash, properties, and stakes in various ventures, has been a topic of debate, with estimates varying widely. Much of his wealth comes from real estate holdings, such as residential buildings, golf courses, hotels, and office buildings. However, some of these assets have decreased in value, partly due to the pandemic.

Trump’s involvement in Truth Social, a social media platform he founded, has also impacted his wealth. His stake in the platform’s parent company, Trump Media & Technology Group, could potentially be worth billions. However, his overall net worth has been a subject of contention, with legal challenges surrounding the valuation of his assets and allegations of inflating his net worth.

Despite these legal battles, Trump has never personally declared bankruptcy, although some of his businesses have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the past. Forbes estimates Trump’s net worth at $2.6 billion as of mid-March 2024, but his wealth has fluctuated over the years, with estimates ranging from $10 billion to $2.6 billion.

Requests for comment from Trump’s lawyers regarding these legal matters have gone unanswered. Additionally, Trump’s financial disclosures, which have been disputed in the New York civil case, include estimates and broad value ranges for his assets.

As the deadline approaches, the outcome of Trump’s legal battle and its impact on his financial standing remain uncertain.
