Trump liable for fraud, judge finds in New York civil case

Donald Trump committed fraud by repeatedly misrepresenting his wealth by hundreds of millions of dollars, a New York judge has ruled.

The ruling, part of a civil case brought against the former president and his family business, said he defrauded banks and insurers for years.

It is a major blow to Mr Trump that will likely hamper his ability to do business in the state.

In his ruling, Judge Engoron said “the documents here clearly contain fraudulent valuations that defendants used in business”.
