Donald Trump's lawyers argue he shouldn't have to pay a bond in

the E. Jean Carroll defamation case because of his wealth.

They claim Carroll admitted to his financial resources during the trial,

making it unnecessary for him to post a bond.

They also believe Trump will succeed in his appeal, potentially reducing

the judgment to $22 million, requiring a lower bond.

Judge Kaplan is awaiting Carroll's response before making a decision.

Trump faces other financial liabilities, with legal fees totaling over $600 million.
