According to Musk’s prediction, if Trump were to be arrested, he would win the next election by a ‘landslide.’ As per his tweet in response to a Fox News segment on the Manhattan District Attorney’s request for a meeting with law enforcement ahead of a possible Trump indictment. The meeting is yet to be set, but it is believed to discuss logistics for next week, which indicates that an indictment is anticipated. The Secret Service will lead the decision on whether to handcuff Trump.
If this happens, it will be the beginning of Trump’s reelection. https://t.co/sQJsHsrib0

President Donald Trump could face indictment over the hush money scandal involving actress Stormy Daniels. The scandal involved Trump’s alleged payment of $130,000 to Daniels in 2016 to keep quiet about an alleged affair with him. Despite denying the affair, Trump reimbursed his lawyer Michael Cohen for the payment. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has been investigating the scandal for the past five years. In response to the news, Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, posting that he will be “ARRESTED ON TUESDAY.”
Former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social on Saturday morning to comment on the possibility of being indicted next week for alleged hush money payments made to actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has been investigating the matter for the past five years. While the office declined to comment on the matter, Trump took to social media to decry the “illegal leaks from a corrupt & highly political” office and claimed that he would be “ARRESTED ON TUESDAY” based on a “fully debunked” “fairy tale.”
Trump’s comments have reignited discussion online about how the possible indictment could affect his 2024 presidential bid and renewed accusations from his supporters that the investigation is politically motivated. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., tweeted that the probe is “ALL FOR POLITICS!” and that “Republicans in Congress MUST subpoena these communists and END this!”
