“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin expressed her support on Tuesday for the slashing of former President Trump’s court-ordered bond, emphasizing its appropriateness within legal norms.

Trump’s bond, initially set at $454 million, was reduced to $175 million on Monday, a move Hostin found fitting, as reported by Fox News Digital. Prefacing her statement, Hostin acknowledged that her stance might surprise some.

“I’m going to take $175 million instead of over $400 million so that you can continue your appeal so that you can continue living your life and doing your business, but to be clear, if he loses that appeal, they get to keep that $175 million, and then he got to pony up with the rest of the money, so this is how it is supposed to work. This is the process,” the liberal co-host continued.

She went on to clarify, “I’m going to take $175 million instead of over $400 million so that you can continue your appeal so that you can continue living your life and doing your business, but to be clear, if he loses that appeal, they get to keep that $175 million, and then he got to pony up with the rest of the money, so this is how it is supposed to work. This is the process,” the liberal co-host continued. 

Hostin asserted her comfort with the decision, as co-host Joy Behar expressed gratitude. Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, insisting,”Is it not freaking people out how we’re talking about this? This is a man who said, ‘I’m going to perpetrate a coup on the country.’

Now, when I was a kid, nobody, if somebody had said that, your face would fall off. Your head would explode. But we talk about this like it’s normal now,” Goldberg said.

The conversation pivoted to other charges Trump currently faces, prompting Goldberg to express disbelief at the normalization of such discussions.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Tristan Snell, a former assistant New York attorney general, criticized the judicial process, asserting Trump’s preferential treatment. “Do we even need to ask? Honestly, this is so infuriating I don’t even know what to do.

I don’t even know if I care what the process is that these judges are arriving at. Whatever it is, it’s flawed. I can tell you that much,” Snell said. “This is a different process for this person. We have decided that he gets his own private court of justice.

A New York Appeals Court significantly reduced the bond hours before Trump’s bond deadline, ordering Trump to post $175 million within ten days. Trump committed to complying with the appeals decision, effectively thwarting AG Letitia James’ attempts to seize his assets as he appeals Judge Arthur Engoron’s judgment.
