What are the charges against Donald Trump?

NEW DELHI: Donald Trump has become the first former President in US history to face criminal charges. On Tuesday, he appeared before a court in Manhattan and pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the run-up to the 2016 elections. This after a jury set up by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg voted last week to indict Trump. Theoretically, the former President who will seek re-election next year can carry on with his campaign. Even if he is jailed, he could still run for the presidency. But a legal case and trial will be a drag on the presidential campaign and may also dent his image.
