The news of Trump indictment is one that has got millions of Americans talking, with most of them reacting to it on various social media platforms. And in this article, we’ll bring to you some of these tweets made in reaction to the news.
Controversial former President Trump, on March 30, 2023, has been indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg. The indictment is based on some 30 charges which are yet to be made known to the American public. But the charges are in relation to hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels, a porn actress Trump is alleged to have had an affair with. The hush money Trump is alleged to have paid is $130,000.
“This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender to the Manhattan D.A.’s Office for arraignment on a Supreme Court indictment, which remains under seal,” the district attorney’s office said in a statement Thursday.
For some, getting Trump indicted less than two years to the 2024 presidential election, could amount to political prosecution.
Donald Trump’s case has been with the Manhattan grand jury for quite some time now, making people to think if Trump will ever be hauled before court.
Meanwhile, Trump, in reaction to his indictment, said he’s going through political persecution which he believes is aimed at jeopardizing his presidential campaign. In a statement, he said: “I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden,” the former president said. “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…”

Tonight’s indictment of Donald Trump isn’t about the law. It’s about power. Raw power. It’s the Democrat Party telling the nation they will stop at nothing to control the outcome of the next presidential election. It is an assault on our democracy, pure and simple

Today marks a turning point in our country.
The indictment of Trump is a moment in the death of the rule of law.
Our Founders are weeping – law is supposed to be fair, regardless of political party.

An entire generation of young people is being introduced to a Republican Party that cares more about protecting Donald Trump from indictment than protecting school kids from being shot in classrooms. https://t.co/nPWpiaftVJ

Don’t get distracted by the indictment of Trump. Remain focussed on the Marxists in the Obama Regime. Ignore all MSM. “It’s all saturated…it’s all indoctrinated…it is all being hijacked by the New World Order Satanists…the Transhumanists, they want your children…” –@DrewHLive pic.twitter.com/kVJFkHEf7K

Be very afraid of what the Left will do while the world is distracted by the #TrumpIndictment.

What does Trump indictment means?
As Trump is indicted, all that it means is that the grand jury, Alvin Bragg, is satisfied with evidences provided by prosecutors. This means the jury has enough evidence to prosecute Trump for the 30 undisclosed criminal charges brought against him.
The indictment also means that former president Trump will stand trial for the crimes he is being accused of committing.
What does indictment means?
Indictment is a legal document that outlines the charges against the person and the basis for those charges. It is important to note that an indictment does not mean that the person is guilty of the crime, but rather that there is enough evidence to proceed with a trial.
Once a person is indicted, they will typically be arraigned in court and will have the opportunity to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. The case will then proceed through the criminal justice system, with the ultimate goal of determining the person’s guilt or innocence.
