Former US president Donald Trump says he declined to answer questions while appearing under oath in a New York state attorney general’s civil probe into alleged fraud at his family business.

“I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution,” Trump says in a statement.

“When your family, your company, and all the people in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors, and the Fake News Media, you have no choice,” he adds.
