Former President Trump faces potential indictment over alleged hush money paid to Stormy Daniels to cover up an extramarital affair.
A grand jury in New York City is currently weighing whether to proceed with the indictment.
Trump’s former fixer and fierce critic Michael Cohen has alleged that the former president paid him $130,000 in 2016 to buy Daniels’ silence.
Meanwhile, Trump himself has predicted that he will be arrested and has called for protests in his defense.
However, while some supporters have heeded his call, others have been urged to stay home.
Law enforcement officials in New York City are making security plans for any potential protests, with the Secret Service expected to accompany Trump throughout the process.
House Republicans have also rallied to Trump’s defense, while potential rival presidential candidate Nikki Haley has criticized the prosecutor’s pursuit of a political agenda.
The indictment decision could mark the first time in history that a former president is indicted.
