Big Apple Preps for Protests Ahead of Trump Arrest
What will Tuesday bring?
American history will be made this week, as former President Donald Trump believes he is to be arrested by authorities in Manhattan in regard to their ongoing investigation into his payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
Trump himself made the prediction on Truth Social over the weekend, and it now appears as though New York City is preparing for the chaos that his arrest could bring.
The NYPD and US Secret Service are huddling to prep for Donald Trump’s possible indictment in Manhattan after the former president said he expected to be arrested this week and told supporters to protest, sources told The Post.
The FBI, state court officers and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office have also been kept in the loop on security discussions, with the Big Apple bracing for the worst after Trump, 76, urged his followers to “take our nation back” in light of his looming indictment, police sources said.
“We will use all of our available resources,” one NYPD source said Sunday, noting that the department’s Strategic Response Group — which responds to civil unrest and major events — “has a role in this agency and when needed they will be called in.”
Authorities were confident in their preparations.
“We’ll handle it like we do anything else,” NYPD Chief Kevin Maloney told The Post. “It’s Lower Manhattan, there’s always plenty of police presence down there anyway. So we’ll monitor the situation. We’ll have ample resources. We’ll see what Tuesday brings.”
Trump supporters online have been discussing potential ways to attempt to impede the 2024 candidate’s arrest, but Trump has suggested that he’ll turn himself in peacefully.
