In the content version, there is a Last Modified Date that populates both the date and time, so I created a custom field called Last_Modified__c with a field type Date that is set to create only date not time.

Now I need a trigger that populates the last modified date, & not the time in Last_Modified__c based on the LastModifiedDate field in the content version.

trigger updateLastModifiedField on Last_Modified_Date__c (after insert) {
List<ContentVersion> LastModifiedToUpdate = new List<ContentVersion>();
for(Last_Modified_Date__c  cv: Trigger.new){
    if(nt.ParentId != null && nt.ParentId.getSObjectType() == schema.ContentVersion.sObjectType){
        ContentVersion cv=new ContentVersion(Id=cv.parentId,RecentNoteContent__c=cv.Body);


    update LastmodifiedToUpdate;

    You should edit your question to include that. It's hard to read code in comments (and the length of comments is very limiting). After you copy/paste your code into your question, click the {} button to format it so it shows up nicely.

Your OP is confusing as the trigger isn't on ContentVersion so I'm assuming that is what you wanted based on your description

trigger updateLastModifiedField on ContentVersion (after insert) {
  List<ContentVersion> cvs = new List<ContentVersion>();
  for(ContentVersion  cv: Trigger.new){
    cvs.add(new ContentVersion (Id = cv.Id,
                                Last_Modified_Date__c = cv.LastModifiedDate.dateGMT()));

  update cvs;
