Trump later added a jab at Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who led the prosecution of the former president. “Why is there so much MURDER in Atlanta? Why is there so much Violent Crime? People are afraid to go outside to buy a loaf of bread! One big reason is that failed District Attorney, Fani Willis, who is campaigning and fundraising off ‘get Trump’ (much like the others!), doesn’t have the Time, Money, or Interest to go after the real criminals, even the REALLY Violent ones, that are destroying Atlanta, and its once beautiful culture and way of life. This is yet another SAD DAY IN AMERICA!” he posted.

According to NBC, Trump departed for Atlanta from Newark, New Jersey, shortly before 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Tight security and a bevy of supporters were waiting at the Fulton County Jail, where Trump was to be arraigned. “He’s being persecuted,” said Lyle Rayworth, a supporter from Carroll County, Georgia. “They impeached him twice. Now they’re trying to indict him four times. They’re trying to eliminate him from the ballot box,” Rayworth said.

Earlier in the day, Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff, was arraigned and released on $100,000 bond, according to CNN. Trump has already agreed to a $200,000 bond. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
