Former president Donald Trump shared a series of posts on Truth Social during his trip to New York for his arraignment.
Last Thursday, a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict the former president on more than 30 counts related to business fraud.
“HEADING TO NEW YORK. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” Trump wrote in a Monday afternoon Truth Social post.
“WITCH HUNT, as our once great Country is going to HELL!” the former president followed up in another post.
In a third post, Trump wrote, “AMERICA FIRST!”
Shortly after his initial posts, the former president threw criticism towards the Biden family regarding potential ties to China, along with classified documents found at the President’s house last year.
“When will they be looking at the Biden Documents, many of which were brought to CHINATOWN, and then sent to Boston. Is this why China paid him and Hunter Millions of Dollars?” Trump wrote. “What about the Classified Docs laying on the floor of his unsecured garage (with the Corvette!), or at Penn, or the, get this, 1,850 BOXES in Delaware that they REFUSE to give up.”
“I followed the Presidential Records Act, he didn’t. He OBSTRUCTED, I DIDN’T. Trump hating Prosecutor Jack Smith, a lunatic, should ‘GET BIDEN!’”

“Biden and his ‘people’ knew all about the Radical Left, Soros backed D.A. (Bragg) going after ‘Trump,’” Trump continued. “They pushed the Racist D.A., which wasn’t difficult, even putting a top Democrat DOJ official (Matthew Collangelo) into Bragg’s Office (who even sign’s subpoenas!) to push this Witch Hunt forward.”
He added: “The Fake News refuses to report this, but now everyone knows. Election Interference!”
Trump also shared a video from his motorcade leaving Mar-a-Lago as he departed for New York on Monday afternoon.
In a March 18 Truth Social post, Trump said he would be arrested on the 21st and called for people to protest and “take our nation back.”
New York district attorney Alvin Bragg previously delayed the grand jury’s vote, informing them to be on standby for Thursday.
Michael Cohen, the prosecution’s star witness, reportedly paid adult film star Stormy Daniels $130,0000 during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and was subsequently sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to charges regarding the payment in 2018.
Critics contest Trump and his associated organizations sought to cover up Daniels’ payment and suggest Trump’s company’s internal records “falsely” identify the reimbursements as legal expenses.
Shortly after the Manhattan grand jury’s vote to indict the former president, Trump responded by calling the decision “Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history.”
The former president’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, confirmed Trump would surrender to the Manhattan district attorney’s office early this week.
Trump is the first former president to face criminal charges after office.
