Donald Trump, the former US president, has sent an email to his supporters asking for donations to fund his 2024 campaign, just hours before he is due to be arraigned on criminal charges in New York. The email, titled « My last email before my arrest, » was sent by a joint fundraising committee supporting Trump’s third White House bid. The email lamented the « loss of justice in America » as he faces charges over hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump added that « there is no doubt in my mind that we will prevail once again and WIN the White House in 2024. »
Former White House Communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin said that she believes Trump is « spiralling » over his rapidly escalating legal battle. Ms Griffin said on The View on Tuesday that she does not believe for a minute the reports that Trump has remained calm and is relishing the criminal indictment. Mr Trump will soon be arrested and arraigned in New York – becoming the first current or former US president to ever be criminally charged. The former president will appear in-person before Judge Juan Merchan for his arraignment at 2.15pm ET on what is expected to be almost three dozen charges.
The charges are currently unconfirmed but reports suggest he will face 34 felony charges. The charges will be unsealed at his arraignment. The former president flew into New York on Monday aboard his Trump Force One plane before spending the night at Trump Tower in Manhattan. After Tuesday’s court hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court, he will fly straight back to Mar-a-Lago to deliver a primetime address at 8.15pm ET.
