LAGOS APRIL 13TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Former President Trump is back in the Big Apple.

The 76-year-old landed in New York City Wednesday night ahead of his expected deposition Thursday morning in the $250 million business fraud lawsuit brought against him and his company by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The embattled 45th president’s arrival comes a week after he was arraigned in a Manhattan court on a 34-count indictment in a separate criminal case from District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Trump is expected to be grilled a second time by James, who is suing the Trump Organization over alleged wrongdoing, including misleading banks and others that inflated the value of golf courses and hotels that bear his name.

As when he was first questioned in the case last year, Trump is expected to plead the Fifth — or refuse to answer questions to avoid potentially incriminating himself — on Thursday, sources from multiple agencies previously told The Post.

He invoked the Fifth more than 400 times last summer.

James, a Democrat who Trump has blasted over her probe, is seeking $250 million from his business and to block him from doing business in the state.

She filed the civil case that includes three of his adult children in 2022 after her office launched the investigation in 2019. The probe was jump-started when ex-Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen testified before Congress and implicated Trump and his business practices.

The judge presiding over the civil case remains committed to an Oct. 2 trial date, but he recently agreed to move some pretrial deadlines so lawyers had more time to comb over evidence, speak to witnesses and file motions

The former president was photographed departing from West Palm Beach International Airport on his private plane before landing in his former hometown.

He’s expected to stay overnight at Trump Tower in Midtown.
