Judge threatens to ‘excuse’ Trump from court for ‘making speeches’ as he gives evidence in New York trial

Donald Trump is giving evidence at his civil trial in New York.

It comes after his sons, Eric and Donald Jr, both gave evidence to the trial last week.

The former US president is accused of inflating his net worth. He denies any wrongdoing.

Trump briefly appeared in the dock last week and was fined $10,000 (£8,200) for breaching a gag order that barring him from personally attacking court staff in his fraud trial.

Before arriving at court on Monday, Trump wrote on his social network Truth Social: “Got a really Biased, Nasty, Club controlled, but often overturned, Judge, a Racist, Evil, and Corrupt Attorney General, BUT A CASE THAT, ACCORDING TO ALMOST ALL LEGAL SCHOLARS, HAS ZERO MERIT. A dark day for our Country. WITCH HUNT!”
