Trump Submits to New York Court Ahead of Arraignment


On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump did something remarkable – he surrendered to authorities in New York ahead of his arraignment on criminal charges. The charges stem from hush money payments made to a porn actress during the 2016 presidential election. This marks the first time in U.S. history that a former president has faced criminal charges, and is sure to be treated as an extraordinary moment in American history.

Trump arrived at court in an eight-car motorcade from Trump Tower with the Secret Service. During the ride, Trump posted to social media: “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!” Arriving at the courthouse, wearing his signature dark suit and red tie, he waved to supporters and entered the building to be fingerprinted, processed, and arraigned before Judge Juan Merchan.

The arraignment will be brief and Trump is expected to plead not guilty – but it is the first time he will see the exact charges against him. After the arraignment, he is expected to be released without the need for bail. New York City Police have prepared for large protests by those who follow Trump’s belief that the indictment is politically motivated and intended to harm his chances of his at possibly regaining the White House in 2024.

After the arraignment, Trump is scheduled to fly back to Florida and deliver remarks at his Mar-a-Lago residence, an appropriate symbol of his defiance and victimhood es amidst the criminal proceedings. Around 500 prominent and largely pro-Trump Congressional Republicans are expected to attend the event.

Trump has continued to use his narrative to his political advantage. This can be seen through the fundraising request titled “My last email before arrest” and the continued slander of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Some have even suggested scrutiny of District Attorney Bragg’s family members. Although Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and New York Rep. George Santos showed up in solidarity with Trump, journalists outnumbered protesters.

Prosecutors on the case are Alvin Bragg, a democrat, and Trump’s defense lawyers. The investigation of Trump is looking into payments made to Stormy Daniels, a porn actress, and model Karen McDougal who both allege they had sexual relations with the then-married Trump. However, the former president denies such claims and has denied any wrong doing regarding payments to the women.

Overall, Trump’s arraignment is a unique case in American history and serves as a reminder of the integrity and power of the criminal justice system. It also serves as a demonstration of the political implications of a former president facing criminal charges, as well as a reminder of not only Trump’s spending, but strange ability attract fans despite legal accusations.
