Former US President Donald Trump said he expects to be arrested on Tuesday over allegations that he paid a pornographic actress before the 2016 elections, and called on Americans to demonstrate.
Trump wrote in his account on his social platform, “Truth Social”, yesterday: “The main Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday. Pretend! Take back our country!”, speaking of “leaking information from the Manhattan Attorney General’s office” about his arrest.
In addition, Trump appeared on YouTube and Facebook again, in a return to the social media platforms that he used to promote his political rise until his accounts were suspended after his supporters attacked Congress on January 6.
After two years of ban, Trump broadcasted on his Facebook page and YouTube channel a video clip entitled “I’m back” taken from CNN, which included announcing his victory in the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton. . The clip ends with the phrase “Trump 2024”.
“Sorry to keep you waiting,” Trump said in the clip.
Yesterday, YouTube reactivated Trump’s channel. Meta also reactivated Trump’s accounts on “Facebook” and “Instagram” earlier, and Elon Musk, the new owner of “Twitter”, also restored Trump’s account on the famous social networking platform last November, but Trump has not yet tweeted about it. . While his victory was unlikely, Trump supported his presidential campaign in 2016 using social media. Having returned to those platforms, he can now enjoy access to key political fundraising tools and connect with his 146 million followers in total across the three major technology platforms as he seeks to run again for president in 2024.
