When the news first broke of Judge Engoron’s verdict against Donald Trump today, the number that was reported was $364 million. Now it turns out that number is apparently a lot higher than $364 million, thanks to the fine print.

For starters, it turns out the $364 million verdict was the combined total of the penalties against Donald Trump, his two adult sons ($4 million each), and Allen Weisselberg ($1 million). So the verdict against Donald Trump himself was only $355 million. Except it was actually much larger than that.

NBC News says that the $355 million doesn’t include the interest that Judge Engoron has assigned, dating back to when Trump committed the acts of fraud. That interest adds up to about $98 million. So Trump appears to actually owe $453 million to the state of New York.

This is in addition to the $83 million he already owes E. Jean Carroll. That puts the combined number at well over half a billion dollars. Trump’s day just keeps getting worse for him.
