Former US president accused of financial fraud in New York state.
Donald Trump has considered himself the best self-made billionaire; a man who has created an empire thanks to his impeccable business skills.
However, New York’s attorney general says his success is built on lies and deception.
The state is suing the former US president, his family business and his children for financial fraud.
They allegedly inflated 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 strengthen, the former president’s political standing?
