Donald Trump’s growing list of criminal indictments is putting his “time-honoured strategy of delay, denial and distraction to its ultimate test”, said CNN. The former president, who is seeking re-election next year, will have to run his campaign while fighting “converging legal battles”.

Some will play out in public. A judge in Georgia ruled this week that the trial of Trump and his co-defendants on election fraud charges will be televised and live-streamed on YouTube. It would be the first time cameras would be allowed to “capture full proceedings in one of the four criminal cases brought against Trump this year”, said CBS News.
