Today, on April 4, former President of the United States Donald Trump was arrested in a New York court.
During the meeting, the court must determine to what extent the freedoms of the former president will be restricted in the future, whether he will be released on bail or imposed other obligations. The politician was going to be at his estate in Florida this evening, which is not consistent with "detention".
Trump's lawyers reported that he remains under arrest longer than they expected. According to the defense, the court appearance procedure should have taken no more than half an hour. After leaving the meeting room, the former American leader refused to answer journalists' questions.
The New York court said that Trump is "under arrest and awaiting charges". Meanwhile, supporters and opponents of the politician gathered outside the building in Manhattan. Those who disagree with Trump accused him of lying, the support group is waving flags with the name of the ex-president and the inscriptions "Trump or death". The White House said it was ready for unrest because of the trial.
