New York Judge Orders Trump and His Business to Pay $355 Million in Fraud Penalties

The penalties include a financial punishment, a three-year ban from executive positions in New York companies for Trump and his sons, and a three-year prohibition from applying for loans in New York State. An independent monitor has also been appointed to oversee the Trump Organization’s operations.
