Former President Donald Trump is expected to surrender himself to the Manhattan DA’s Office for arraignment on Tuesday.

After former President Donald Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on Thursday, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg reportedly wanted him to be arraigned Friday. However, this date was something his office needed to coordinate with Trump’s legal team.

In a statement about Trump’s surrender and arraignment dates, Bragg said, “This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender to the Manhattan DA’s Office for arraignment on a Supreme Court indictment, which remains under seal. Guidance will be provided when the arraignment date is selected.”

According to Trump’s legal team, he is now expected to turn himself in on Tuesday, after which he will be fingerprinted and have a mug shot taken. He will likely appear for his arraignment on the same or the following day, during which the judge will present the charges against Trump.

Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina told ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ that Trump “will not be put in handcuffs” and that he plans to plead not guilty.

In response to his indictment, Trump released a statement in which he called the case against him a “witch-hunt” and labeled it as “political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history.”


In preparation for Trump’s surrender in NYC, the NYPD is reportedly ramping up its police presence, ordering all uniformed officers to be in uniform and “prepared for deployment” by Friday at 7 am.

Despite the ramping up of the police force, City Hall Press Secretary Fabien Levy reported that there have been no “credible threats” to the city.

“The mayor is in constant contact with Commissioner Sewell about all public safety issues affecting the city,” said Levy. “The NYPD continues to monitor all activity and there are no credible threats to the city at this time. The NYPD always remains prepared to respond to events happening on the ground and keep New Yorkers safe.”
