New Delhi: Former US President Donald Trump saw a significant improvement in his business situation, making it his most profitable day yet. While dealing with a lawsuit in New York over fraud allegations, where he was expected to post a bond of over $500 million, a court lowered the requirement to $175 million. Trump committed to covering this amount. At the same time, his social media company, Trump Media & Technology Group, completed a long merger process, resulting in Trump officially owning shares worth billions of dollars.
