Trump indicted, first US president to face criminal charges

A NEW York grand jury yesterday indicted Donald Trump over hush money payments made to a porn star, making him the first ever serving or former US president to face criminal charges.

The historic indictment of the 76-year-old Republican – who denies all wrongdoing in connection with the payments made ahead of the 2016 election that sent him to the White House – is certain to upend the current presidential race in which Trump hopes to regain office.
