Democrat prosecutors in New York are making “final preparations” to “arrest” President Donald Trump “next week,” multiple reports are suggesting.
Trump has also confirmed the reports in a post on social media.
Fox News reported Friday evening that prosecutors are planning to arrest Trump next week.
According to Fox, the Manhattan DA’s office asked for a meeting with law enforcement ahead of the possible Trump indictment.
Trump will “be fingerprinted and processed like every other defendant,” the report added.
The Secret Service will make the decision to handcuff Trump or not.

President Trump has also confirmed the reports.
Trump posted on Truth Social that he expects to be arrested on Tuesday in a criminal case in New York.
The post reads:
NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.
PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!
Earlier this year the Manhattan District Attorney’s office revived its criminal investigation into Trump’s “hush payments” to porn star Stephanie Clifford, AKA, Stormy Daniels.
Democrat prosecutors elevated the case from a misdemeanor to a felony.
Trump has been accused of paying Daniels “hush payments” in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer.
Trump has denied the affair.
President Trump didn’t testify to the Manhattan grand jury this week.
Trump’s lawyer Joe Tacopina blasted the prosecutors in the Stormy case earlier this week.
“It’s not what we do,” Tacopina said on Good Morning America.
“This is not what we do.
“We are distorting laws to try and bag President Trump.
“I don’t know if it’s because he’s leading in the polls.
“I don’t know what it is, but this prosecutor and this prosecutor’s office has made an agenda.
“They have scoured his personal life and business life for seven years to try to find something.”
