In defiance of the grand jury’s accusations that he attempted to alter the 2020 election fraudulently, former President Donald Trump has said that he would “proudly” show himself to the Fulton County prison in Georgia last Thursday to be arrested.
Trump made the announcement on Truth Social, his social media platform, twenty-four hours before his court hearing.
As reported, the former president presented himself the day after skipping the Fox News GOP primary debate. Bond for the ex-president in the Fulton County matter had reportedly been set at $200,000.
On August 14, prosecutors filed charges against the ex-president and 18 others for allegedly plotting to steal the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.
They were given instructions to report for booking before noon last Friday.
The 41-count indictment claims that former President Donald Trump, his attorneys, and his campaign associates are charged with several offenses related to a countrywide challenge to the 2020 vote.
A spokesperson for MAGA Inc. PAC, Karoline Leavitt, told a reporter that the release of former president Donald Trump’s mugshot from Fulton County has united Americans of all political stripes.
Leavitt stated that one could undoubtedly see the rebellion in President Trump’s eyes in that mug shot. It indeed has galvanized millions of Americans across the political spectrum.
Leavitt acknowledged the enthusiastic reception Trump’s convoy got from Atlantans on Thursday.
Since former President Donald Trump turned himself into the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, his presidential campaign has received $7.1 million. Trump sent out his first tweet in almost two years, inviting followers to contribute to his campaign by sharing a picture of his mugshot.
Trump campaign clothing featuring the mugshot with the slogan “NEVER SURRENDER!” was also available for purchase.
According to reports, another $4.2 million was raised on Friday alone, making it the single greatest fundraising day in Trump’s campaign.
