Trump Says Police Officers and Court Employees Were ‘Crying’ and ‘Apologizing’ During His Arraignment


Former US President Donald Trump claimed that during his Manhattan arraignment last Tuesday, court officers were crying and apologizing to him.


On Tuesday night, April 12, Trump spoke with Tucker Carlson of Fox News Channel.


Asked about the experience by Carlson, Trump called them ‘incredible.’
‘When I went to the courthouse, which is also a prison in a sense, they signed me in and I’ll tell you people were crying – people that work there, professionally work there, that have no problems putting in murderers and they see everybody,’ Trump said. ‘It’s tough, tough place, and they were crying. They were actually crying. They said “I’m sorry.”‘

‘So in one sense it was beautiful,’ Trump said. ‘Because they get it.’
The former president joked that arraignments were never taught at Wharton, where he attended business school, before calling it a “sad” day.


Trump’s appearance in court was a first for an American president, as he became the first to be charged after leaving office.

Trump was charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in connection with a $30,000 payoff to a doorman attempting to sell information about a child allegedly fathered out of wedlock by Trump, a $150,000 payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, and a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

After the 16-page indictment was unsealed, he pleaded not guilty in New York Criminal Court.


That night, Trump made a case about the key prosecutors and judges involved.


He said Bragg campaigned ‘on the fact that he would get President Trump.’


He also went after Judge Juan Manuel Merchan, who’s presiding over the New York hush-money case.


‘I have a Trump-hating judge, with a Trump-hating wife and family, whose daughter worked for Kamala Harris and now receives money from the Biden-Harris campaign and a lot of it,’ Trump charged from the podium at his Florida home and resort.


He also blasted Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis – calling her a ‘local racist Democrat district attorney in Atlanta.’


Willis, who is black, is overseeing a case where Trump could be charged over his role in trying to overturn the 2020 election result in the state of Georgia.


Trump also called New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is also black, a ‘racist in reverse’ for pursuing fraud cases against his businesses.

The ex-president also labeled Special Counsel Jack Smith a ‘lunatic.’


The next day, however, he released a statement cheering the professionalism of the police officers and court employees he interacted with.


‘The GREAT PATRIOTS inside and outside of the Courthouse on Tuesday were unbelievably nice, in fact, they couldn’t have been nicer,’ Trump said.

‘Court attendants, Police Officers, and others were all very professional, and represented New York City sooo well.’
