This Thursday, August 24, former US President Donald Trump made headlines again after his arrest and subsequent posting of bail for a fourth probe. The day before, he appeared in Georgia court and was accused of meddling in the 2020 election, leaving Joe Bien as a White House tenant.
Days earlier, Trump himself announced that he would appear before authorities on Thursday, although he was also expected to pay bail of $200,000, which would allow him to remain free to wager on his presidential race . For this reason, too, the Republican has been in the “eye of the hurricane” for months.
Other investigations concern alleged payments to an actress to “buy” her silence on a pre-election “affair” of 2016 and improper handling of confidential files (taking them to her home in Mar-a-Lago).
The third is whether there was an active role in taking the Capitol when an attempt was made to “sabotage” the official announcement of the Presidential results in January 2021.
Elon Musk’s reaction
The Republican shared the police record of his arrest in Georgia in X. It is his first release in this field in more than two years. This was limited to sharing the photo taken of him by Fulton County Jail authorities and a link to his 2024 presidential campaign.
The sentences “Manhunt file: August 24, 2023”, “Election interference” and “Never give up” are attached to the picture. This release was replicated by X’s owner, Elon Musk, with a “next level” message.
This social network became the ex-president’s favorite communication space at the time, as evidenced by his continuous activity. However; This also cost him the suspension, after the previous regulations had classified his publications as a risk of “incitement to violence”.
“I entered the lion’s den”
Elon Musk, who bought the platform last year, reinstated the former president in November 2022, but the tycoon chose to stay out of it, even launching his own social network, Truth Social, albeit with a much smaller audience.
“Today I entered the lion’s den with a simple message on behalf of our entire movement: I will never give up on our mission to save America,” Trump said. “If you can, please help oust the corrupt Joe Biden from the White House and save America in this dark chapter of our country’s history,” he added.
