DONALD Trump will break his silence with a prime-time speech after appearing in court.
The ex-president, 76, will go to a New York courtroom after surrender to authorities Tuesday in Manhattan.
He is then ready to give a primary speech from him Mar-a-Lago estate Florida just hours later.
The 2024 Republican nominee will face cameras after having his fingerprints taken, processed and photographed by New York prosecutors.
He is being charged with hush money paid to a porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election to silence claims of an affair.
Paying hush money is not illegal, but it is alleged that Trump falsified records to misrepresent the payment.
Trump will plead not guilty to the charge, the first time ever faced by a former president.
It’s because the businessman’s attorney said he hoped the trial would be “painless and stylish.”
The payment was handed over to the porn actress by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohenwho pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance law and was received three years in prison in 2018.
Joe Tacopina defended his client in a CNN interview, claiming, “These were personal expenses, not campaign expenses.”
He added that Trump would stand up in court to “say not guilty very loudly and proudly.”
His 2024 presidential campaign has raked in more than £3 million since indictment last week, with the ex-leader ahead of Republican rival Ron DeSantis in new polls.
