"This is the 5th time in this case that he has been overturned, a record. His credibility, and that of Letitia James, has been shattered."

Following a New York appellate court’s decision to allow Trump to pay a lowered $175 million in bond in the civil fraud case brought forth by Attorney General Letitia James, Trump criticized Judge Arthur Engoron, who delivered the decision in the case, and said that "I did nothing wrong."

"Judge Engoron has refused to obey the decision of the Appellate Division relative to the Statute of Limitations. This is a confrontation between a Judge and those that rule above him - A very bad situation in which to place New York State and the Rule of Law! Engoron has disrespected the Appellate Division and its very clear and precise ruling. He should be made to do so, and at the same time, release the GAG ORDER," Trump wrote.

"This is the 5th time in this case that he has been overturned, a record. His credibility, and that of Letitia James, has been shattered. We will abide by the decision of the Appellate Division, and post either a bond, equivalent securities, or cash. This also shows how ridiculous and outrageous Engoron’s original decision was at $450 Million.” 

Trump added, “I did nothing wrong, and New York should never be put in a position like this again. Businesses are fleeing, violent crime is flourishing, and it is very important that this be resolved in its totality as soon as possible. thank you!" 

Speaking outside the New York courthouse where Trump appeared for a hearing in a separate case, Trump said that Engoron has "done a terrible disservice to the state of New York." 

"I greatly respect the decision of the appellate division and I’ll post the $175 million in cash or bonds or security or whatever is necessary, very quickly within the 10 days and I thank the appellate division for acting quickly."
