Trump’s News Live: The latest updates as president must hand over financial documents

The Trump administration has been ordered to hand over financial documents relating to a property in New York after allegations that the president’s family and their associates swindled assets to collect millions of dollars in tax benefits.

A New York County State Supreme Court judge handed down the verdict on Tuesday, on the condition that the documents be handed in by Dec. 18.

In a statement, the attorney general investigating the allegations of injustice said “justice and the rule of law prevailed”, adding that the Trump administration must comply with the order.

Elsewhere, the first lady, Melania Trump, was accused of violating health guidelines while reading stories to patients after she removed her mask while going to a children’s hospital in Washington, DC.

The White House has denied that any rules have been broken, insisting that public speakers do not have to wear masks if their audience is more than six feet away from them.
