A reporter asked President Biden Monday if he was concerned about potential unrest in New York City surrounding the arraignment of former President Donald Trump, the Daily Caller reported.
“Trump is set to be arraigned Tuesday in New York City, and said he will be heading to the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse in the morning. The former president called for protests as he expected to be indicted on allegations related to paying $130,000 in hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels. He also warned about ‘potential death and destruction,'” the Daily Caller reminded readers.
Biden’s response: “No, I have faith in the New York Police Department.”
Biden also reportedly stated that he has faith in the legal system “at this time.”
The Daily Caller went on to mention comments made by New York City Mayor Eric Adams at a press conference the same day and mentioned Biden’s refusal to comment on Trump’s indictment up to this point.
Police have erected metal barriers around the courthouse where Trump will appear Tuesday for arraignment and around Trump Tower where the former President is expected to spend Monday.
As for Biden’s stated lack of “concern,” some have speculated that “unrest” may be exactly what Democrats are hoping for.
Trump, for his part, has added an additional attorney to his defense team. The attorney is Todd Blanche, a former partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft.
Trump is expected to arrive at the courthouse at 11 a.m. Tuesday and be arraigned at 2:15 p.m. He is not expected to be in handcuffs.
