Watch as Donald Trump's criminal trial on charges of falsifying business records to conceal a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels continued in New York on Monday, 20 May.

The former president's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen concluded his testimony and the prosecution rested its case against the former president.

It comes after Mr Cohen was accused of lying by Trump attorney Todd Blanche and challenged over inconsistencies in his public statements about the Ms Daniels payoff at the heart of the case.

Mr Trump has pleaded not guilty and denies any sexual encounter with Ms Daniels.

He has portrayed the case as an effort to harm his 2024 presidential campaign.

It is still unclear if Mr Trump plans to testify himself or how many witnesses, if any, the defence might call.
