Former US President Donald Trump Arrested, Heading to Arraignment at Miami Federal Courts
Authorities have arrested former US president Donald Trump at the Miami federal courts. He is currently traveling to the arraignment where he will likely enter a not guilty plea.
Trump was arrested after being charged 37 times for handling sensitive documents improperly at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago. This second indictment was issued just a few months after a Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump in a different hush-money case.
According to a private channel, Trump has vehemently denied the accusations and promised to continue running for president in 2024 despite them in both instances. He is scheduled to speak Tuesday night after arriving at his New Jersey resort, Bedminster.
On his way to the courthouse, Trump posted on a private social media platform, announcing that he was on his way, saying, "On my way to the courthouse. Witch hunt!!! MAGA," the former president posted in all caps.
Following Trump's post on social media, his aide Steven Cheung tweeted a short video clip showing the motorcade appearing to leave Trump's Doral property on the way to the Miami courthouse.
"President Trump on the way to fight the witch-hunt," he tweeted.
