Donald Trump to make his first remarks since his indictment on Tuesday
Trump announces plan to address the nation at 8:15 p.m. from Mar-a-Lago on TUESDAY, just hours after his arrest in New York
Donald Trump will deliver remarks Tuesday in his first speech since he was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, and is expected to be arraigned the same day in New York.
A 2024 campaign ad notes that Trump will speak from his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, on April 4 at 8:15 p.m.
This indicates that the former president believes he will return to his Florida estate on Tuesday night despite an arraignment in his former hometown earlier that day.
On Thursday, a Manhattan grand jury indicted former President Trump after District Attorney Alvin Bragg convinced the panel of wrongdoing in respect of paying $130,000 in silence money to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Donald Trump announced he will make remarks from his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida on Tuesday night, just hours after being arraigned in New York City.
A motorcade carrying Trump arrived at the former president’s golf club on Sunday morning.
Pro-Trump protesters set up on lawn chairs near Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday, April 2, with signs, flags and megaphones.
As Trump is arraigned Tuesday in New York City, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a staunch supporter of the former president, will be in the Big Apple meeting with the New York Young Republicans at a park near the courthouse.
‘Join Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and us in peaceful protest of Alvin Bragg’s heinous attack on President Donald J. Trump!’ announces an announcement of the demonstration.
Trump became the first former president to be impeached on Thursday.
The last time Trump spoke publicly was on Saturday, March 25, during a rally in Waco, Texas, amid reports that he would be indicted by the Manhattan grand jury that would hear the district attorney’s case alleging wrongdoing on Trump’s part. in the 2016 presidential election.
Now Trump is preparing to address his supporters, and his haters, after being indicted Thursday and following his arrest in New York, where he is expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
Bragg claimed that Trump was aware of a payment made to Daniels to keep her quiet during the campaign about her alleged affair a decade earlier.
Trump insists that he has never had a sexual relationship with Daniels and says he was not aware that his attorney at the time, Michael Cohen, settled with the porn star and her attorney.
Many say the impeachment against Trump has only bolstered their support for his 2024 presidential bid and energized his already enthusiastic base. Trump has even made this claim, saying the impeachment is only helping his chances of being elected to another term in the White House.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (pictured March 30, 2023) has been criticized by Republican critics for politicizing his position and using it to go after an opposing party leader.
Trump’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said that if the former president did not run for another term in the White House, a case against him related to paying hush money would never be brought.
Tacopina, who represents Trump in the Bragg case against him, said Americans concerned with upholding justice should worry about the politicization of the judicial system.
Trump predicted he would be arrested last month, but the grand jury still needed to hear at least one more witness before it could make a decision.
Pending an imminent impeachment, Trump encouraged his supporters to take to the streets and “protest, protest, protest,” and in a Truth Social post a few days later warned of “death and destruction” if impeached.
Since news of a possible indictment circulated last month, supporters of the former president have lined the street leading to his Mar-a-Lago property with flags and signs endorsing Trump and criticizing the Democratic district attorney.
