Tuesday, April 4th will be a date that forever lives in the annals of American history, as former President Donald Trump becomes the first person to ever hold the office and also be criminally indicted.
Trump has been largely defiant in the fact of his arrest, suggesting that the DA charging him is simply running a partisan witch hunt aimed at eliminating Trump from the 2024 presidential race, where he is the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party, and by a long-shot.
The former Commander in Chief’s attitude hadn’t changed much on Tuesday, with Trump posting a rather powerful message to Truth Social as he was being driven to the Manhattan court house.
During the brief, minutes-long journey, he couldn’t resist taking to his social media platform to document his travels.
Trump was having a rather unique day.
“Heading to Lower Manhattan, the Courthouse. Seems so SURREAL — WOW, they are going to ARREST ME. Can’t believe this is happening in America. MAGA!” he posted.
The former president arrived at Manhattan Criminal Court at 1.24pm on Tuesday afternoon where he was met with both supporters and counterprotesters who have clashed outside throughout the historic day.
The courthouse was heavily fortified by law enforcement officers and metal barricades encircling the area as he raised his hand to wave to crowds gathered.
Donald Trump is expected to hold a press conference from Mar-a-Lago at approximately 8pm on Tuesday night.
