Former United States President, Donald Trump, is prepared to be arrested in Georgia on Thursday, August 24, on election fraud charges.
Taking to his Truth Social handle, he wrote, “NOBODY HAS EVER FOUGHT FOR ELECTION INTEGRITY LIKE PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.
“FOR DOING SO, I WILL PROUDLY BE ARRESTED TOMORROW AFTERNOON IN GEORGIA. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!”
Trump and his 18 co-defendants were charged on August 14 with attempting to overturn Georgia’s 2020 presidential election, and were given a deadline of Friday at noon to hand themselves in for booking.
He is expected to surrender at the Fulton County jail in Atlanta.
On Monday, the 77-year-old’s bail was set at $200,000 and he was ordered not to send threatening social media messages.
Sheriff’s deputies on Monday stepped up security, installing barriers around the run-down jailhouse, as his legal team was spotted entering Willis’ office.
Authorities in Fulton County said he can expect no special treatment.
He will have to be fingerprinted like other suspects at the notorious jail, and may, for the first time, have his mugshot taken.
The jail is well known for its squalid conditions, although Trump will not be held there while he awaits trial.
