Former US PresidentDonald Trump predicts his own arrest next Tuesday
The ex-president refers to “illegal leaks” in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and calls on his supporters to protest. He had previously announced his campaign start for March 25 in Texas.
That’s what it’s about
Donald Trump writes on his own social media platform that he will be arrested on Tuesday.
The reason is hush money payments to the porn actress Stormy Daniels.
Former US President Donald Trump has announced on social media that he will be arrested next Tuesday. In the statement on his network Truth Social, he referred to investigations by the New York prosecutor’s office that he had paid women with whom he is said to have had sexual encounters hush money.
Trump wrote in capital letters on Saturday: “By far the leading Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America will be arrested next Tuesday.” “Illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office pointed to this. Trump called on his supporters to protest.
He also writes that the USA is a third world country and is dying. “The American dream is dead,” Trump said. The reason for this are radical leftists who stole the 2020 presidential election. An accusation that was repeatedly exposed as a lie.
$130,000 for a porn star?
Trump is currently facing a number of investigations. In one case, these seemed to be close to completion: in connection with alleged hush money payments by the former president, the porn actress Stormy Daniels testified on Wednesday before the investigating prosecutors.
$130,000 is said to have flowed to Daniels ahead of the 2016 US presidential election. At the same time, Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, who is said to have handled the payment, testified before a grand jury.
Back to Facebook
Also on Saturday, Trump returned to Facebook after more than two years of banning his user account. “I’m back!” He wrote in capital letters on the social network. The 76-year-old, who is already campaigning for his third attempt at the highest state office, shared an old video in which he apologizes to his supporters for keeping them waiting – it is complicated.
Trump is said to have failed to report gifts worth $250,000
Golden golf clubs from Japan, swords and daggers from Saudi Arabia, a larger-than-life portrait from El Salvador: Former US President Donald Trump is said to have improperly accepted gifts from foreign governments worth more than $250,000 (more than 235,000 euros) during his tenure have stated. A report released Friday by House Democrats spoke of more than 100 gifts given to Trump and his family during the Republican’s tenure in the White House. The senior Democrat on the Chamber’s Oversight Committee, Jamie Raskin, accused the previous Trump administration of “blatant disregard for the rule of law and systematic mishandling of large gifts from foreign governments.” The question arises as to whether the gifts served to influence Trump’s foreign policy.
