Former US President Donald Trump warned that he will be “arrested on Tuesday” in an all-caps post on the social media platform Truth Social on Saturday, crediting “illegal leaks from a corrupt & highly political Manhattan district attorney’s office” for his advance knowledge.
“With no crime able to be proven, & based on an old & fully debunked (by numerous other prosecutors) fairytale, the far & away leading Republican candidate & former president of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week,” Trump predicted, urging his followers to “protest, take our nation back!”
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office would neither confirm nor deny whether he was planning to issue an indictment on campaign finance violations for then-candidate Trump’s alleged payment of hush money to porn actress Stormy Daniels in 2016 when reached for comment by Fox News on Friday.
