On Sunday, former President Donald Trump’s lawyer announced Trump will “loudly and proudly” plead not guilty when appearing in court on Tuesday.
Trump’s counsel, Joe Tacopina, appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and told the host, Dana Bash, Trump is excited to plead not guilty.
“This is not not normal operating procedure. It’s all up in the air. All the Tuesday stuff is still very much up in the air other than the fact that we will very loudly and proudly say not guilty,” Tacopina said in response to a question about a potential Trump mugshot.

As Trending Politics previously reported, the former president released a statement on Sunday that said Trump will be giving a speech at Mar-a-Lago hours after his Tuesday arraignment.:
On Sunday morning, the Trump campaign sent out a press release saying that the 45th President will give a speech at Mar-A-Lago just hours after being arraigned in New York over the “hush money” witch hunt being carried out by Alvin Bragg.
Jason Miller discussed Trump’s plan with Newsmax on Sunday morning: “President Trump is very emboldened; he’s very strong; he feels the support from all the people who are backing him. So tomorrow, on Monday, he’ll be flying up to New York – of course heading down the courthouse on Tuesday morning.
“And then – it’s going to be announced here very shortly – President Trump is going to be giving a speech on Tuesday night at Mar-a-Lago 8:15 p.m. I think the entire world will be watching just how strong and just how fervent he is, that we must continue this Make America Great Again movement, because you can’t have Trump policies without President Trump,” he added.
