Is It Ethical To Make Donald Trump Pay Such a High Bond?

The law enforcement veteran discusses the $454 million bond deadline, and how it’s unfairly affecting the Presidential candidate.

All eyes are on Donald Trump today as his legal team is hard at work on paying the $454 million bond asked of him following the multimillion-dollar civil fraud judgment found against him. If he is unable to do so, then there’s a possibility that his assets could be put in line, in an effort to pay the bond.

While Trump awaits word on a state appeals court to see if he can post a smaller bond, criticism has arisen from a number of supporters, believing that the large amount being asked for is near impossible to get together – especially considering that the former President is busy with his re-election campaign.

So is it fair or not? Joining us to make sense of this further is Michael Letts, a law enforcement veteran with over 30 years of experience under his belt. Letts is President, Founder and CEO of InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. His knowledge in all things law and order – as well as real estate, the same market as Trump – make him an ideal guest for the show.

Welcome, Mr. Letts!


  1. First off, what do you personally think of the $454 million being asked by Trump surrounding the civil fraud judgment found against him?
  2. Even with so many assets in your disposal, do you personally think it’s tough to come up with that kind of money? Especially in a short time frame?
  3. You’ve noted that the judge with “ethical problems” shouldn’t be positioned to ask such a high amount from someone like Trump. Why do you think this is the case?
  4. Do you believe this should’ve gone to a jury trial before such a bond could be imposed?
  5. It’s interesting how originally, in the trial, they weren’t in favor of Trump’s “high property” value, but now suddenly they’re taking advantage of it. Why do you think that is?
  6. If Trump is unable to meet bond, what do you believe will happen next? Could it open the door for more criticism?
  7. You’re the creator of InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers across a number of programs. Tell us more about it.
  8. Where can we learn more about InVest USA, and how those interested can help their fellow officers, especially in their time of need?
