As speculation grows that he could be arrested this week, former President Donald Trump has announced the first rally his 2024 campaign will take place in Waco, Texas, on Saturday, March 25.
Trump made the announcement while touting a recent poll by CWS Group that showed the former president leading the field of potential Republican candidates among Texas Republican voters with 43 percent. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was the second place recipient, with 27 percent of Republican voters, down 8 percent from the month prior.
The rally comes on what could be an eventful week for the 45th president.
Documents leaked from the Manhattan district attorney’s office reveal Trump could be arrested as soon as Tuesday on charges related to hush-money paid to a porn actress ahead of his 2016 presidential bid.
“Illegal leaks from a corrupt & highly political Manhattan district attorney’s office … indicate that, with no crime being able to be proven … the far & away leading Republican candidate & former president of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week,” said Trump on his Truth Social platform.
The expected arrest does not seem to have affected his campaign schedule, however.
Saturday’s rally, which is taking place at the Waco Regional Airport on Saturday, is slated to begin with special guests at 2 p.m. Trump is scheduled to make his remarks at 5 p.m.
