Former US President Donald Trump asked his supporters to “protest, take our nation back”, after claiming that he might be detained on Tuesday in connection with a six-year-old hush-money case involving adult film actress Stormy Daniels. If accurate, it would be the first time in history that a US president would be charged with a crime.  

The Republican leader has denied all allegations, describing the investigation as a 'witch hunt' operated by a prosecutor working for the Democratic Party with the aim of undermining the 76-year-old’s presidential campaign in 2024.
