Former US president and top Republican nominee in the 2024 election, Donald Trump, is awaiting his arrest. The ex-head of state previously announced this on his Truth Social social network, noting that this could happen on March 21.
At the same time, he called on his supporters to protest. According to the American media, Trump may be detained as part of the investigation into the 2016 case. We are talking about a bribe to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels for hushing up the scandal associated with her and Trump, who at that time was still a presidential candidate. Then the politician’s lawyer Michael Cohen allegedly sent her $ 130 thousand so that Daniels would not tell the public about her affair with the billionaire in 2006.
Wayne University Detroit Professor Said Khan:
“It is not clear how Trump’s detention will affect the Republican Party or his election campaign, as this is a completely unprecedented story. No U.S. president, past or present, has ever faced criminal charges. Many members of the Republican Party, including Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, have rallied around Trump, arguing that any potential accusations are highly politicized. The ex-president himself appears to be banking on publicity to support his campaign by playing the victim of a politically motivated witch hunt.”
