How protected is the president from lawsuits?

President Bill Clinton claimed in the 1990s that he couldn’t be sued for his actions as a private citizen until after his presidency ended. That comment drew criticism, as Clinton was involved in a legal battle with Paula Jones, who accused the former Arkansas governor of sexual harassment. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled against the president in 1997. Now, President Trump’s lawyers are asking a New York judge if he should face a lawsuit brought late last year.
