A judge has ordered that Donald Trump’s trial in Georgia on charges of election fraud be livestreamed and televised.

Fulton County Court’s YouTube channel will stream all hearings live, said Judge Scott McAfee.

When Mr Trump runs for re-election next year, it may be next year that the trial takes place.

The state’s 2020 presidential election results are being overturned by Mr Trump and 18 others.

He has pleaded not guilty to 13 charges in Georgia, where he faces three other criminal trials.

Livestreaming is usually available for all court proceedings in Fulton County.

Despite this, it could be one of the most watched trials in recent years because it is the only one of Mr Trump’s four trials that will be broadcast.

Last week, Mr Trump went to Atlanta to have his mugshot taken at Fulton County Jail. During his arraignment, a short hearing at which the plea is entered in court, he waived his right to appear in court next Wednesday.

In the state of Georgia, he lost the election to Democrat Joe Biden, according to prosecutors.

The prosecution’s case revolves around a phone call he made to the state’s secretary of state to recalculate the vote count.

“I just want to find 11,780 votes,” he says on the recording.

During the call, Donald Trump said it was “perfect”, and none of his lawyers raised any concerns.

As the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, the former New York real estate tycoon’s mounting legal issues have not diminished his popularity.

The case in Georgia, as well as the other three criminal cases he faces, are politically motivated.
