Ex-U.S President Donald Trump charged with criminal offence
Donald J. Trump, the immediate former President of the United States on Tuesday April 4, appeared in a New York
court and was charged with 34 felony counts. The development has heightened tensions in America’s politics.
The case carries huge historic importance as Trump become the first former President in 150 years to be charged with a criminal offence.
The case has attracted immense attention across the United States and beyond, in part due to the fact that the former President has declared intension to run for office, another rare move for a former President to try to reclaim the presidency after losing it.
Trump’s supporters gathered in large numbers in New York to protest what they called political persecution by the Democratic-led administration in the Tate of New York.
His supporters say that the charges have less to do with law and order but rather more to do with trying to stop him from running for president again.
