Trump declares he 'did nothing wrong' as he arrives to Manhattan courthouse

Former President Trump arrived to the Manhattan courthouse for his New York criminal trial on Tuesday, speaking briefly to reporters outside the courtroom.

The trial resumes Tuesday with both the prosecution and defense offering their closing arguments, which judge Juan Merchan says will last the entire day. Trump argued that the verdict in the case could be a "dangerous day for America."

Merchan also must hand down a ruling on a motion to dismiss from the defense. Trump's legal team had filed the motion last week, but Merchan did not address it.

Trump was joined at the courthouse by Eric Trump, Don Jr., Tiffany Trump and Laura Trump.

In order to convict the former president, prosecutors need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump falsified records to conceal a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, a pornographic performer, in the lead-up to the 2016 election to silence her about an alleged affair with Trump in 2006.
