Donald Trump will face federal charges after the US Department of Justice on Thursday night moved to prosecute the former president over claims he mishandled classified documents.

This could be a massive blow to his attempts to get the Republican nomination for the presidential election.

On social media he wrote, “I’m an innocent man. I did nothing wrong. I will fight this, just like we’ve been fighting for seven years”.
