Donald Trump is melting down on Truth Social over his indictment
The 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, has officially been “INDICATED.”
Well, at least that’s what he said in a rant on his social media platform, Truth Social.
What Trump really means is that he’s been “indicted.”
On Thursday, March 30, 2023 a New York grand jury voted to indict(Opens in a new tab) the former president. The charges have not been unsealed at this time. Trump has been under investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office for his alleged involvement in a “hush money payment scheme” involving adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
Trump has been ranting about a potential indictment on Truth Social for weeks after rumors spread regarding an investigation into the alleged scheme and subsequent cover-up. So, when the news of the indictment came through, it was only a matter of time before the former president delivered with some more posts.
“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history,” Trump opened with his first Truth Social post of the evening, in an attached screenshot(Opens in a new tab) of his usual press release statements.
Trump goes on to mention the opening of his first presidential campaign when he “came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower.” He attacks Manhattan DA Bragg and predicts that the “Witch-Hunt” will backfire on Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election.
He then followed up the press release with a more classic Donald Trump-esque social media post where he misspells the word “indicted.”

“These Thugs and Radical Left Monsters have just INDICATED the 45th President of the United States of America…” Trump posted(Opens in a new tab). “THIS IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE.”
“SO SAD!” he continued.
The news of his indictment comes ones day after Trump predicted in a Truth Social post that he would not be indicted.
“I HAVE GAINED SUCH RESPECT FOR THIS GRAND JURY, & PERHAPS EVEN THE GRAND JURY SYSTEM AS A WHOLE,” he posted(Opens in a new tab) on March 29. “THE EVIDENCE IS SO OVERWHELMING IN MY FAVOR, & SO RIDICULOUSLY BAD FOR THE HIGHLY PARTISAN & HATEFUL DISTRICT ATTORNEY, THAT THE GRAND JURY IS SAYING, HOLD ON, WE ARE NOT A RUBBER STAMP, WHICH MOST GRAND JURIES ARE BRANDED AS BEING, WE ARE NOT GOING TO VOTE AGAINST A PREPONDERANCE OF EVIDENCE OR AGAINST LARGE NUMBERS OF LEGAL SCHOLARS ALL SAYING THERE IS NO CASE HERE. DROP THIS SICK WITCH HUNT, NOW!”
With his indictment, Donald Trump makes history as the first former president to face criminal charges.

This is the statement Trump issued after his indictment was announced:
This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history. From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats the enemy of the hard-working men and women c this Country have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement. You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax;
Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.
“The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ’Get Trump; but now they’ve done the unthinkable indicting a completely innocent person in an act blatant Election Interference. “Never before in our Nation’s history has this been done. The Democrats have cheated countless times over the decades, including spying on my campaign, but weaponizing our justice system to punish a political opponent, who just so happens to be a President of the United States and by far the leading Republican candidate for President, has never happened before. Ever.
“Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who was hand-picked and funded by George Soros, is a disgrace. Rather than stopping the unprecedented crime wave taking over New York City, he’s doing Joe Biden’s dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assaults he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time!
I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden. The American people realize exactly what the Radical Left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it. So our Movement, and our Party united and strong will first defeat Alvin Bragg, and then we will defeat Joe Biden, are going to throw every last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
