Trump National Golf Club at risk after New York registers fraud judgment – Washington Examiner

Former President Donald Trump could be at risk of having his New York golf club seized by state Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, if he fails to post an appeal bond to cover his civil fraud trial judgment, according to Westchester County records.

The Empire State’s $454 million judgment against Trump was registered by James on March 6, though the filing did not state a reason for the registration or identify any Trump assets. Still, the procedural move would allow James to secure liens, if she chose to do so, on the Trump National Golf Club Westchester and an underdeveloped 212-acre Seven Springs estate.

The former president faces a deadline of March 25 to post a bond covering the $454 million civil judgment against him over his past business practices — or risk state authorities seizing his assets.

James has been candid that she would immediately begin enforcing the judgment if Trump fails to post an appeal bond by the deadline next week.

“And yes, I look at 40 Wall St. each and every day,” James said, referring to the former president’s prized Trump Building in New York City.


If Trump does not post a bond by Monday, he can still appeal the decision. But the verdict from a state judge could be enforced immediately starting on Monday, meaning James could begin seizing his New York assets in a matter of days.

A panel of appeals court judges will decide by March 25 whether the multimillion-dollar judgment against Trump can be paused while he appeals.
