Prior to his arraignment, Donald Trump has arrived at the Manhattan district attorney’s office and is being held by police. After his historic grand jury indictment, he will formally become the first US president to face criminal charges.
On Tuesday, the indictment is anticipated to be made public for the first time, revealing the charges in detail.
In connection with an investigation into hush money payments made to an adult film actress in 2016, Trump will be charged with more than 30 counts of business fraud.
The former president will enter a not guilty plea and fight the accusations, according to Trump’s legal team.
After the arraignment, the former president, who has promised to continue his 2024 campaign, is scheduled to fly back to Florida and give a speech tonight at Mar-a-Lago.
