WASHINGTON : Former United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday became the first former US President to be arrested after he surrendered at a local court in New York. Trump will now face charges arising out of hush money given to a porn star by the former White House resident.
Trump was booked like a common crime suspect. However, he was not handcuffed. He is now in police custody at the office of the Manhattan district attorney. He will be facing his arraignment in historic criminal charges against a person who held the highest office of the US.
In addition to the hush-money payment case, Trump is facing several other criminal investigations at the state and federal levels, including his efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss, his handling of classified documents, and his role in the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.
