Donald Trump revealed on social media his plan to present himself at Fulton County Jail on Thursday due to charges filed by District Attorney Fani Willis. The declaration was shared on his official account on the Truth Social platform.
Trump posted, “Can you believe it? I’ll be going to Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday to be ARRESTED by a Radical Left District Attorney, Fani Willis, who is overseeing one of the greatest Murder and Violent Crime DISASTERS in American History.”
Trump continued, “In my case, the trip to Atlanta is not for ‘Murder,’ but for making a PERFECT PHONE CALL! She campaigned and is continuing to campaign, and raise money on, this WITCH HUNT. This is in strict coordination with Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ. It is all about ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”

The indictment filed on August 14 alleges Trump’s involvement in a “conspiracy to illicitly alter the election outcome in his favor.”
The ex-president, along with Rudy Giuliani and 17 co-defendants, will face arraignment at the jail.
Trump will encounter a $200,000 bond and a directive to abstain from sending menacing social media messages as he awaits trial. Enhanced security measures will be in place at the jail during Trump’s surrender.
Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat had mentioned that the ex-president would undergo a “mug shot” during the arrest procedure and said, “Unless someone tells me differently, we are following our normal practices, so it doesn’t matter your status; we have a mug shot ready for you.”
In Georgia, the charges mark Trump’s fourth indictment round. Additionally, he confronts federal accusations tied to the alleged 2020 election interference, federal charges concerning classified documents and a New York state case involving hush money to Stormy Daniels.
Across these four cases, he confronts a total of 91 charges.
The trial’s launch date has been suggested by prosecutors for March 4, whereas Trump’s legal team has requested a trial in 2026.
