Despite the indictments and arrest threats hanging over his head, former President Donald Trump received clapping and cheers when he attended the NCAA Wrestling Tournament on Saturday at the BOK Center in Tulsa.
Trump was captured on camera during his visit grinning widely and waving as the crowd applauded his entry. The former president was also spotted lifting his fist in celebration, according to Breitbart News.
Senator Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), who was seen posing for pictures with the billionaire, invited the former president to the game. He was obviously well-liked by everyone in the arena.
According to Tulsa World, Trump was also seen shaking several of the wrestlers' hands. The anti-American billionaire George Soros-funded New York DA Alvin Bragg is subjecting Trump to unprecedented political persecution.
Trump said in a post on Truth Social that he had been informed that an arrest will happen on Tuesday. But, some now believe it won't happen because of ongoing maneuvering in Bragg's office.
Trump is presently being prosecuted for a $130,000 hush money payment to former porn star Stormy Daniels, among other legal issues, according to People online. If Donald Trump is charged with a crime, it will be the first time in history that a former president has been so.
The politician said that his indictment by the Manhattan District Attorney is near in a message published to his own network Truth Social on March 18, implying that he may be detained as early as Tuesday this week.
An alleged $130,000 "hush money" payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign is the subject of the investigation.
In response to claims from several media sites, including The Associated Press and CBS, Trump stated in the post that he would soon be subject to potential criminal charges associated with the allegation.
"Illegal leaks from a corrupt & highly political Manhattan district attorney's office ... indicate that, with no crime being able to be proven ... the far & away leading Republican candidate & former president of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week," wrote Trump (in reference to himself) on his social media site over the weekend.
Along with making the assertion, Trump, who is running for president in 2024, urged supporters to "protest, take our nation back."
Although the Manhattan District Attorney, whose office is in charge of the criminal investigation, has not yet publicly reacted to Trump's assertions, a number of Trump's representatives, including his attorney Joseph Tacopina, have made statements on his behalf.
Although Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels and has criticized the probe, the D.A.'s office previously invited Trump to testify before the grand jury as part of its criminal investigation into his alleged role in the hush money payment.
