Former U.S. President Donald Trump is set to testify in his own $250 million civil fraud trial, brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Trump's testimony is expected to be a major turning point in the trial.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has accused James of conducting a politically motivated witch hunt.

James has said that the trial is about holding Trump and his family accountable for their actions.

The trial is expected to last several weeks.

If Trump is found guilty, he could be banned from doing business in New York State

The outcome of the trial could have a significant impact on Trump's business empire.
