Donald Trump’s company has been fined $1.6m (£1.3m) after top bosses at the firm dodged taxes.

A judge could only impose a fine on the Trump Organization after its conviction last month for 17 tax crimes, including conspiracy and falsifying business records.

Mr Trump himself was not on trial and denied any knowledge of his executives evading taxes illegally.

Neither the former president or his children, who helped run the company, were in court for the sentencing hearing.
