Former U.S. president Donald Trump is indicating he will be arrested within days. In a message on his Truth Social media platform on Saturday, Trump said he will be arrested Tuesday and called on his supporters to “protest.” Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is conducting a grand jury investigation of a hush-money payment Trump allegedly made to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her from going public before the 2016 election about an alleged decade-old sexual encounter. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and called Bragg’s investigation “a political witch hunt.”
Trump did not give details. It is known that authorities in New York City have been looking at charges against Trump in a so-called hush money case in which a former adult film performer was paid to keep silent about an alleged affair with Trump before he was president. Trump was Republican president from 2017 to 2021 and has said he will make a bid to return to the White House in the 2024 US presidential election. The probe is one of several legal woes Trump faces as he seeks the Republican nomination for the presidency. Trump is also confronting a state-level criminal probe in Georgia over efforts to overturn the 2020 results in that state. Meanwhile, billionaire Elon Musk has claimed that former President of the United States Donald Trump would be re-elected in a "landslide victory" if he is indicted by Manhattan prosecutors.

If the Manhattan district attorney indicts Trump, the 76-year-old would become the first former president to be charged with a crime in the United States.
