Watch a view of Trump Tower in New York City as Donald Trump's criminal trial continued in a Manhattan court.

The proceedings on Thursday, 16 May, saw the ex-president's former “fixer” Michael Cohen return to the witness stand for further cross-examination by the defence.

On Tuesday, Mr Cohen was grilled about his changing attitudes towards his former boss, referencing insults thrown at Mr Trump on podcast and social media and the idea that he has profited from publicly attacking the former president through merchandise sales.

Mr Cohen previously told jurors that the former president personally authorised him to make a hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels weeks before the 2016 election, to stop her from telling a story about an alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump.

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.

Prosecutors do not anticipate calling any more witnesses.
