Donald Trump and three of his children will soon take the stand in a New York business fraud case.

A judge ruled yesterday that Mr Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, must testify in the case against her brothers and father.

She was dismissed as a defendant in the case earlier this year – but her brothers Eric and Donald Jr were not.

The New York Attorney General’s Office said the former president will testify on November 6 and his three children will take the stand before him.

Their testimony is expected over three days from Wednesday next week, starting with Donald Trump Jr.

Judge Arthur Engoron has already ruled that Mr Trump inflated the value of his properties to secure favourable loans.

The trial focuses on six other claims made in the lawsuit, including falsification of business records, insurance fraud and conspiracy.

Mr Trump has previously said he would take the stand at the earliest opportunity. He and the other defendants have denied the allegations.
