According to the AP, Trump faces federal charges connected with trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

However, the case in New York centers on accusations that the former U.S. president made hush money payments in an attempt to hide his extramarital affairs.

These payments were allegedly made during his presidential campaign in 2016 — this is the first of four criminal trials Trump is facing.

Judge Merchan explained that he made the decision after consulting with the judge in the D.C. case.

A hearing to confirm that Donald Trump’s hush money trial will begin on March 25 will take place in the same Manhattan courtroom where he pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records.

Thursday was the first time Trump had returned to that courtroom since he became the first ex-president to be charged with a crime in the U.S.

Trump is currently facing four criminal indictments.

He has been charged in Florida, Georgia and Washington, DC.

The recent postponement of the trial in Washington removed a major obstacle to starting the case in New York on time.

This means he will likely be embroiled in court cases throughout the remainder of his run for president.

Trump’s legal troubles have increasingly become a prominent aspect of his political campaign.

He has complained that his court appearances have made it difficult to schedule campaign events, according to El Universal.

The hush money trial in New York is just one of Trump’s many legal problems.

A presidential candidate facing this many court cases is a first in U.S. political history.

The NY case has to do with payments that Trump allegedly made to Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, in order to buy their silence.

He is also accused of paying a Trump Tower doorman who claimed to have a story about Trump having a child out of wedlock, according to The Associated Press.
