Donald Trump has been found guilty on all 34 charges of falsifying business records in his historic trial in New York.

This marks the first time a former or current US president has been convicted of a criminal offense.

He is set to be sentenced on July 11th, with the possibility of facing imprisonment, although legal analysts suggest a fine is more probable.

Trump denounces the verdict as a “disgrace” and criticizes Judge Merchan, who presided over the proceedings.

This ruling coincides with his campaign to defeat Joe Biden in the upcoming election and reclaim the presidency.

During the six-week trial, 22 witnesses testified, including Stormy Daniels, whose alleged affair with Trump was central to the case.

Trump was accused of concealing a payment from his former attorney to silence the ex-adult film star just before the 2016 election.

After deliberating for two days, the 12 jurors reached a unanimous decision.
