Former US president accused of financial fraud in New York state.
Donald Trump has branded himself as the ultimate self-made billionaire; a man who created an empire on the back of his impeccable business skills.
However, New York’s attorney general says his success was built on lies and deception.
The state is suing the former US president, his family business and his children for financial fraud.
They are accused of inflating assets to secure better loans and insurance policies.
Trump has dismissed the lawsuit as a politically motivated witch-hunt.
So will the latest legal woes weaken, or cement, the former president’s political standing?
