US Supreme Court debates Trump immunity claim | BBC News

The US Supreme Court has heard pointed arguments on whether a former president is immune from criminal prosecution over acts carried out while in office.

Donald Trump, who is facing dozens of criminal charges across four cases, claims he – and all presidents – should have presidential immunity.

Trump’s trial on charges he tried to overturn the 2020 election is on hold while the Supreme Court considers his immunity claim.

It may take several weeks to receive the Justices’ decision, which will likely set a precedent for future US presidents.
