Regarding the accusations of trying to change the results of the presidential election, the former president of the United States, Donald Trump surrendered to the legal authorities. The former president was given until the day before yesterday (24) to surrender to the legal authorities. If he did not surrender, there were preparations to arrest him.
Trump has been charged with many crimes and indictments. This is the first time that charges have been filed against a president or former president of the United States. In the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia, one of the accusations against Trump is that he has forced the authorities to manipulate the results of the presidential election.
Trump came from his home in Bedminster, New Jersey to the airport in Atlanta, Georgia by private plane. Trump then went to the Fulton County Jail accompanied by lawyers. It is said that Trump’s photos (mugshots) were taken there, posing as a criminal. That is to include them in the list of criminals. American media reports indicate that this is the first time that a former President of the United States has appeared in a police photo, considered a criminal.
Trump was released on a $200,000 surety bond 20 minutes after the proceedings were over. When the 77-year-old Trump visited the city of Atlanta, Georgia, he told the assembled journalists that he challenged the results of the presidential election because there had been an injustice.
Trump, a senior member of the Republican Party, became the President of the United States for the first time in the 2016 presidential election. An American president has two terms. Although Trump ran for the 2020 presidential election, he could not win. The rival Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden won. Trump did not accept defeat. He kept trying to change the outcome of the presidential election.
The next American presidential election will be held in 2024. Trump is ready to submit. That is because there is another term. However, the criminal charges will be an obstacle, according to American media reports. (Reuters)
