Watch again as Donald Trump’s hush money trial enters seventh day

Watch again as Donald Trump’s hush money trial entered its seventh day on Thursday (25 April) .

The former US president made a surprise campaign stop at a construction site in New York early on Thursday morning en route to day seven of his hush money trial, where further testimony is expected from a former tabloid mogul who detailed the “catch-and-kill” scheme central to the case.

Former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker testified on Tuesday about his agreement with Mr Trump and former attorney Michael Cohen to “kill” stories about the defendant’s alleged affairs.

Prosecutors say Mr Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen’s $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump a decade earlier deceived voters in the waning days of MrTrump’s 2016 campaign when his candidacy was struggling from other revelations of sexual misbehavior.

Mr Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsification of business records brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and denies having had a sexual encounter with Daniels.
