During a Friday morning conversation with Newsmax host Greg Kelly, Donald Trump, opened up about his recent stint at Fulton County Jail in Georgia. The president described it as a ‘terrible experience’ and said he had never heard of a mugshot before. Mr. Trump made history by being the first sitting or former US president to have his mugshot taken. This occurred after charges were leveled against him concerning Georgia’s 2020 election results.
Trump told Newsmax:
“I came in, I was treated very nicely — but it is what it is. I took a mugshot. I had never heard the word mugshot. They didn’t teach me that at the Wharton School of Finance.”
“I went through an experience that I never thought I’d have to go through, but then I’ve gone through the same experience three other times,”
“In my whole life, I didn’t know anything about indictments. And now I’ve been indicted, like, four times,”
“It’s just like one thing after the next. What they want to do is they want to try and wear you out, which they would never do … Just an absolute horrible thing that they’re doing. And I’ve never seen anything like it. This is Third World country,”
Upon posting a bond of $200,000, Trump was released but not without conditions; he’s restricted from discussing case witnesses or co-defendants on digital platforms. Notably, the case encompasses 18 of Trump’s close associates and supporters, among them Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and Sidney Powell.
