Everyone is talking about how Donald Trump is struggling to pay his enormous legal bills, but one man is actually doing something about it. Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis is urging Trump to claim $54,000 the state is holding in Trump’s name.

That’s the total amount of unclaimed funds that belong to either Donald Trump or his businesses or properties, reported the Orlando Sentinel.

“There are some very, very nasty people coming after you, and every dollar matters in your efforts to fight back against these radical state attorneys who have weaponized the courts,” Patronis wrote in a fawning letter to Trump on official state letterhead bearing the CFO seal.

“In January, [Patronis] promoted a bill to create a ‘Freedom Fighters Fund’ that would provide up to $5 million in ‘financial support to Florida residents running for President who face legal, partisan, political attacks by the Department of Justice or State Attorneys.,'” reported the Sentinel.

Florida Gov. and former Trump Republican primary rival Ron DeSantis threatened to veto the bill if it came to his desk, and it died in committee.
