Judge Arthur Engoron ruled in favor of the New York Attorney General’s Office on Wednesday, saying Trump and the Trump Organization increased the value of his properties by more than $400 million. The ruling also found that Trump inflated his net worth to mislead insurers and banks.
“In the world of the defendants: Rent-regulated apartments are worth just as much as unregulated apartments; restricted land is worth the same as unrestricted land; Restrictions can evaporate; “A disclaimer by one party that assigns responsibility to another party exonerates the other party’s lies,” the judge said. “This is a fantasy world, not the real world.”

Trump responded to the ruling in a series of posts on Truth Social, in which he wrote: “I have a deranged, Trump-hating judge who rushed this FALSE CASE through a New York court at an unprecedented rate and refused to hear it “The commercial department, where it belongs, denied me everything: no trial, no jury. He came up with this crazy “KILL TRUMP” decision and assigned insanely low values to properties despite overwhelming evidence.”
“This political hack judge who values Mar-a-Lago, the most spectacular property in Palm Beach and perhaps all of Florida, at $18 million to lower the valuations on my financial statements, which are actually so high, the lower is than my actual net worth, needs to be stopped. I’ve had very unfair judges since I entered politics, but no one has been as unhinged as this guy. Mar-a-Lago may be worth 100 times more than he estimates,” Trump wrote in another post.
During the broadcast on Wednesday of The viewFormer Trump adviser Alyssa Farah Griffin said: “He increased the value of Mar-a-Lago by 2,300 percent. That would be like saying my two-bedroom apartment is a multi-story penthouse. An average person would end up in jail for doing it.”
