April 13 (Reuters) – Former U.S. President Donald Trump has arrived in Manhattan to testify before New York Attorney General Letitia James, he said in a post on his social media site Truth Social on Thursday.

“…I can finally show you a great, profitable and valuable company that I’ve built with some of the largest real estate assets anywhere in the world,” Trump said in another Truth social post on Thursday.

Trump, who is seeking re-election in 2024, was indicted earlier this month by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.

He was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records over allegations he paid two women to suppress publication of sexual encounters with him before the 2016 election.
