On Monday, former President Donald Trump departed his Mar-a-Lago residence and headed to New York, marking the beginning of a legal journey that will culminate in his arrest and subsequent court appearance the next day.

Trump’s motorcade exited the resort premises just after noon and traveled to the airport, where he boarded a flight to New York City.

This will make Trump the first former president in the United States to be indicted, booked, and photographed at the Manhattan courthouse.

On the eve of his departure from Mar-a-Lago, former President Donald Trump confirmed in a post on Truth Social that he will fly to New York and stay at Trump Tower on Monday evening.

His motorcade arrived at the airport in the afternoon, with the former president boarding alone before his campaign staff and lawyers followed him up the rear steps.

Trump’s legal team has said that he will plead not guilty, and they are preparing to add a constitutional expert to the team out of concern that the judge in the case will issue a gag order.

The charges against Trump remain sealed, but are believed to be related to an investigation into the $130,000 hush money paid to adult movie star Stormy Daniels.

When Trump appears in court, he will become the first former U.S. president to face criminal charges.

“I will be heading to the Courthouse on Tuesday morning for my arraignment at 2:15 pm, which is an unfortunate state of affairs for America,’ said the former President in a post on Truth Social.

Following his court appearance, he plans to deliver a speech from his Mar-a-Lago home in the evening. As preparations for his court appearance continue, New York authorities are anticipating the possibility of protests, with police already setting up barricades around Trump Tower and the Manhattan Criminal Court building.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene also encouraged her followers to join her in a protest near the courthouse, stating in a tweet, ‘They’re not going after President Trump, they’re coming after us; he’s just standing in their way.'”
