The Latest | Trump’s hush money trial enters its final leg with closing arguments set to begin

NEW YORK (AP) — Closing arguments in Donald Trump’s historic hush money trial are set to begin, giving prosecutors and defense lawyers one final opportunity to convince the jury of their respective cases before deliberations begin. Arguments are expected to last all day Tuesday with jury deliberations starting as early as Wednesday.

He has denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty to all 34 felony counts.
