Former President Donald Trump has landed in Fulton County, Georgia to face arrest over leftist District Attorney Fani Willis’ RICO case brought against Trump, as well as a number of his lawyers and advisers.
The former president appeared to be in good spirits as he waved to supporters immediately after exiting his plane. He also gave a “thumbs up” before heading to the notorious jail to face his fourth criminal indictment ahead of the 2024 election. “Thank you very much,” Trump said to supporters before entering a vehicle.

Large crowds of supporters had lined up outside the Fulton County jail for hours ahead of the former president’s arrest. Trump’s initial appearance was initially slated for Thursday afternoon, though he later announced that he was due to arrive around 7:30 p.m., Eastern Time.
A sizable portion of the supporters are with Blacks for Trump, a local organization sporting custom t-shirts and signs with phrases like “Republicans are not racist” while members chanted the former president’s name.
