In just three weeks, Trump will stand trial and become the first former president to do so.

Donald Trump avoided a financial and personal catastrophe in sixty bizarre minutes in New York, but he came dangerously near to historical shame. On Monday, things didn’t go too badly for the former president. An appeals court more than cut in half the amount of a half-billion dollar bond commitment that was required to prevent prosecutors from taking possession of some of his properties, or what he candidly referred to as his “babies” on social media, giving him a victory in the legal realm. Things might become much better on Tuesday when a combined firm that included Trump’s media company goes public, potentially increasing his net worth by $3 billion. However, the scene that the world will most likely remember was in a Manhattan courthouse, where Trump was sitting irately while a judge blocked his most recent attempt at postponement and scheduled his hush money trial.

If nothing unexpected happens, Trump will go on trial for the first time as an ex-commander in chief on April 15. This will add a surprising element to the election in November and break yet another presidential record. His plan to use his political movement to undermine his opponents and cast doubt on the integrity of the court system will be put to the test in the upcoming trial. However, in spite of all of Trump’s attempts to stall the concurrently ticking legal clocks, there is now a genuine chance that one of the presidential contenders is a convicted felon. Of course, Trump can also be found not guilty in this criminal case. Thirty-four counts of fabricating company documents pertaining to hush-money payments made prior to the 2016 election in order to conceal an alleged relationship with adult film actress Stormy Daniels are brought against him. (Trump has denied the affair and entered a not guilty plea.)

Trump’s appearances on Monday during and after a pre-trial hearing in the hush money case were driven by his conflicting emotions: relief that he isn’t losing the empire that made him famous, at least for the time being, and rage at the humiliating trial that will now take place in just three weeks. He congratulated the judges who, in his opinion, gave him good decisions and chastised those who, in his opinion, mistreated him. Regarding the result pertaining to the civil fraud case, Trump declared, “We will, I think, do very well. We appreciate and respect the appellate decision very much.” He replied, “It will be an honor to post.” The fact that a lower $175 million bond posting requirement is considered a significant victory speaks something about how far down Trump’s legal road he has gone. However, the court ruling was a lifesaver for him because he had been struggling for a month to find an insurance company to pay the huge original bail amount and was in serious danger on Monday morning.

Even yet, Trump will be required to pay New York state more than $450 million to cover the unjust gains he made by inflating his assets in order to obtain better loan and insurance agreements, should his appeal against the civil fraud judgment ultimately be unsuccessful. Keeping that in mind, Trump sided with the prosecution’s attorney general, Letitia James of New York, and judge Arthur Engoron in an attempt to support his claim that he is the victim of Democratic persecution. We have an incredibly crooked attorney general and a judge who, in my opinion, is corrupt. According to the former president, we did nothing improper at all. Turning to Judge Juan Merchan, who had ruined the former president’s day by announcing the trial date, Trump leveled yet another venomous grievance. “I’m not sure if you’ll be having the trial. I’m not sure how a trial of this nature can take place during a presidential election.
