NEW YORK CITY: Republican’s Donald Trump made his way to a New York criminal court on Monday to face a criminal trial, marking the first time a former or current US president has faced such charges.

The allegations against Trump revolve around a $130,000 hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election.

Trump is accused of trying to cover up a $130,000 hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. Daniels alleges that she and Trump engaged in a sexual encounter in 2006 and was subsequently paid by Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to keep quiet about it.

Trump, aged 77 and marred by numerous scandals, faces accusations of falsifying business records as part of a scheme to conceal the alleged affair with Daniels and protect his 2016 election campaign from negative publicity.
