President Trump Announces Second Indictment in Series of Truth Social Posts

In a string of Thursday evening posts on his social media platform, Truth Social, former President Donald J. Trump made a significant announcement: he has been indicted and has been summoned to the Federal Courthouse in Miami.

President Trump used the platform to communicate his perspective on the situation directly to his followers and the general public.

In his first post, he stated, “The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax.”

He went on to reference alleged inconsistencies, asserting, “Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette.”

Trump’s second post revealed the location and time of his court appearance.

“I have been summoned to appear at the Federal Courthouse in Miami on Tuesday, at 3 PM,” he declared.

The former president expressed surprise at this development, saying, “I never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former President of the United States.”

In his assertion of innocence, Trump highlighted his voting record and standing in polls, stating, “I am an innocent man who received far more votes than any sitting President in the History of our Country, and is currently leading, by far, all Candidates, both Democrat and Republican, in Polls of the 2024 Presidential Election.”

In the third and final post, the 45th President painted a grim picture of the state of the country and rallied his followers.

“This is indeed a DARK DAY for the United States of America. We are a country in serious and rapid Decline,” he said. However, he ended with a call to action and optimism, reaffirming his infamous slogan: “but together we will Make America Great Again!”

This is not the first time President Trump has been formally accused like this.

On March 30, 2023, Trump made history when he became the first U.S. president to be indicted.

The indictment, issued by a Manhattan grand jury, is related to alleged hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress, during the 2016 presidential election.

The specific charges against Trump remain undisclosed as the indictment is currently sealed.

Prosecutors, however, have brought forth a 34-count felony indictment, accusing Trump of conspiring to influence the 2016 election through hush money payments to two women who claimed to have had sexual encounters with him.

Trump vehemently denies these charges, labeling the indictment as “political persecution,” and has pleaded not guilty to all counts.

That indictment followed weeks of speculation surrounding Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s potential move to pursue such a significant legal confrontation with one of the most confrontational figures in modern American politics.
