Biden accuses Trump of lying about money

 March 26, 2024

On Monday, the reelection campaign of President Biden criticized former President Trump for asserting that he possesses the necessary funds to post a $175 million bond in his civil fraud case and ignoring the possibility that a conviction in another case could jeopardize his electoral prospects.

Earlier in the day, judges in New York Appeals Court halted the enforcement of the $464 million judgment against Trump, the Trump Organization, and senior executives on the condition that they post a $175 million bond within ten days. This was a significant victory for Trump, as The Hill reported.

However, a New York judge denied Trump and his legal team's request to delay the April 15 start of his hush money trial.

Trump's Cases

Approximately six months prior to election day, the former president's first of four criminal cases to proceed to trial will assemble in this setting.

“Donald Trump is weak and desperate – both as a man and a candidate for President,” Biden spokesperson James Singer said in a statement. “He spent the weekend golfing, the morning comparing himself to Jesus, and the afternoon lying about having money he definitely doesn’t have," Singer said.

"His campaign can’t raise money, he is uninterested in campaigning outside his country club, and every time he opens his mouth, he pushes moderate and suburban voters away with his dangerous agenda.

“America deserves better than a feeble, confused, and tired Donald Trump.”

Biden's Attempted Ridicule

On Sunday, Biden also ridiculed Trump for gloating that he had won two golf trophies at the awards ceremony of his own golf club.

Additionally, Biden and the campaign have labeled Trump "Broke Don" due to his recent fundraising totals in comparison to the incumbent.

Trump shared a Bible verse on Monday, and Biden took a swipe at the former president's religious comments: “It’s ironic that Christ walked through His greatest persecution the very week they are trying to steal your property from you.”

Regarding the $175 million bond payment, Trump responded that he had "a lot of cash" when questioned following the hush money hearing.

Prior Case Details

Prior to this, his attorneys had stated that Trump was incapable of posting the $464 million bond, despite his assertions to the contrary.

Ahead of the press conference, Trump hypothesized that a conviction in the hush money case might increase his popularity. Furthermore, he asserted, without substantiation, that Biden was to blame for his legal issues, stating, “It’s a Biden trial. There is no trial.”

In the New York case, Trump is accused of 34 counts of falsifying business documents pertaining to reimbursements given to his former fixer, Michael Cohen. Daniels, a pornographic actress, was allegedly paid $130,000 by Trump prior to the 2016 election in exchange for her silence regarding an alleged affair with the president.
