Former President Donald Trump urged his supporters to take to the streets and protest as he announced he'll be arrested on Tuesday by New York prosecutors.
In capital letters, Trump posted on TruthSocial to call on Americans to stage demonstrations and “save America.”
“IT'S TIME!!! WE ARE A NATION IN STEEP DECLINE, BEING LED INTO WORLD WAR III BY A CROOKED POLITICIAN WHO DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HE'S ALIVE, BUT WHO IS SURROUNDED BY EVIL & SINISTER PEOPLE WHO, BASED ON THEIR ACTIONS ON DEFUNDING THE POLICE, DESTROYING OUR MILITARY, OPEN BORDERS, NO VOTER I.D., INFLATION, RAISING TAXES & MUCH MORE, CAN ONLY HATE OUR NOW FAILING USA.”
“WE JUST CAN'T ALLOW THIS ANYMORE. THEY'RE KILLING OUR NATION AS WE SIT BACK & WATCH. WE MUST SAVE AMERICA! PROTEST, PROTEST, PROTEST!!!”
Trump branded the investigation led by the Manhattan DA's office “corrupt and highly political” after he was accused of paying Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep an alleged affair secret back in 2016.
By Saturday afternoon, Trump's supporters were already gathering at the bridge near his Mar-a-Lago residence.
“The Bridge people stand with Trump,” one sign read.
