His convoy proceeded towards the ‘Trump Tower’ located on ‘Fifth Avenue’ in Manhattan, where he would stay for the night. The roads around the tower have been cordoned off and a large number of police forces have been deployed.

When the former President came out of his car, he waved to his supporters and the security personnel quickly took him inside the building.

Trump will appear before Judge Juan Marchen on Tuesday at 2:15 pm EST time (12:45 pm Indian time). He is the first former US President to face criminal charges.

US media reports quoted Trump’s attorney as saying that the former president would not plead guilty. After appearing in court, Trump will immediately leave for Florida where he will make a statement in the evening at ‘Mar-a-Lago’.

The proceedings of the case in the court are expected to be brief. During the hearing, the charges will be read out to him, which will take about 10-15 minutes. Trump has denied any wrongdoing in connection with the funding of Stormy Daniels (44) ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
