Shortly after stepping outside Trump Tower in New York City Tuesday afternoon, President Donald Trump pumped his fist in solidarity with supporters before making his way to the courthouse in lower Manhattan for arraignment.
Trump also sent a message on Truth Social ahead of his day in court where he will face at least 30 charges from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
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!

Once Trump is arraigned, the indictment against him will be unsealed and the details of the charges will be revealed. After the federal government, through the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission passed on prosecution, Bragg is reportedly bringing felony charges against Trump. Cameras will not be allowed in the court room.
During an interview with Good Morning America Tuesday morning, Trump attorney Joe Tacopina said they plan to fight the charges and that the former president has no plans to enter a guilty plea.
"One thing I can assure you, there will be no guilty plea in this case. That is one thing I will guarantee you."

They’re setting Trump up for an assassination. They’ve already designed the entire plan, (including who’s going to do the dirty deed), which will be facilitated on or after Dec. 4th. I’ve got a message for the Left. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. You may be the ones w/ your brains splattered all over the sidewalk! WATCH AND LEARN.
NOTICE TO THE DOJ/GESTAPO: Not everyone is as patient w/ your dictatorial tactics as Mr. Trump. Come and try to arrest me (for ANYTHING). Go ahead and see whose brains are going to be splattered all over the property. MAKE MY DAY, ASSHOLES!
