Trump Says He Expects To Be Arrested, Calls For Protest

Posted on 03/18/23 | News Source: Associated Press

Donald Trump has called for his supporters to protest and claimed that his arrest is imminent over alleged charges related to hush money payments, according to the AP . He made the statement on his social media platform, seemingly as a preemptive move to mobilize his base of supporters ahead of expected charges. The statement led to fundraising solicitations from his campaign and statements in his defense by some influential Republicans in Congress and declared/potential rival candidates. In a later post, Trump directed his anger at the Biden administration and raised the possibility of civil unrest.
