Watch as Donald Trump's hush money trial continued in New York on Tuesday, 23 April.

Today saw key witness David Pecker return to the witness stand.

Prosecutors say the tabloid media mogul and former publisher of the National Enquirer worked with the former president and his then-lawyer, Michael Cohen, on a “catch-and-kill” strategy to buy up and then spike negative stories.

Allegations that Mr Trump orchestrated a scheme to bury unflattering stories about his personal life that might damage his campaign are at the heart of the case.

Mr Trump is alleged to have obscured the true nature of the payments in internal business documents.

He has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

Judge Juan Merchan will soon rule on complaints raised by Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg’s team about numerous instances of the former president allegedly violating the terms of his gag order by posting bitterly about the case and its key participants on his Truth Social platform.
