Trump says he will be arrested on Tuesday in silent payment probe

Former President Donald Trump claimed in a post on his social media platform that he would be arrested on Tuesday as part of the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into silent money payments made to the star of adult cinema Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

As part of the message, Trump also called on his supporters to protest.

In a statement, a Trump spokesperson appeared to walk back the comments.

A Trump spokesperson said there was no notification that the DA “has decided to take its witch hunt to the next level. President Trump rightly points out his innocence and the militarization of our system of ‘injustice. He’ll be in Texas next weekend for a giant rally.”

Trump was not charged with a crime in the investigation.

ABC News has not verified the claims, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has not commented.
