Trump to Speak to Cameras Outside Courtroom Before, After

By    |   Tuesday, 04 April 2023 11:18 AM EDT

Former President Donald Trump is going to be heard by Americans a few times today, including comments to the media outside of his arraignment both before and after, officially declaring "not guilty" himself, and speaking at 8:15 p.m. ET from Mar-a-Lago.

The first president ever to be indicted is reportedly facing 34 felony counts, and he will speak to cameras in the hallway outside the courtroom, Trump attorney Chris Kise told CNN.

Also, Trump will be the only one to enter his "not guilty" plea at the arraignment, according to reports.

Trump is "resilient, upbeat, and is determined as ever to fight off drivers of injustice," Kise said.

Here is an estimated timetable for Trump's movements today:

  • 1 p.m. (all times Eastern): Trump leaves Trump Tower.
  • 1:30 p.m.: Trump arrives at Manhattan County Court.
  • Speaking to media cameras before arraignment.
  • 2:15 p.m.: arraignment and declaring "not guilty."
  • Speaking to the media after entering his plea.
  • 3 p.m.: Trump leaves for LaGuardia airport.
  • Around 5:15 p.m.: Arrival at Palm Beach International.
  • Trump leaves for Mar-a-Lago.
  • 8:15 p.m.: Trump address, which will air live on Newsmax and in its entirety.

The cameras will be running along with Trump's movements today, but he will be off camera and only still pictures will be allowed in the courtroom during the arraignment, according to Judge Juan Merchan's ruling Monday night.

"That this indictment involves a matter of monumental significance cannot possibly be disputed," Merchan wrote last night. "Never in the history of the United States has a sitting or past president been indicted on criminal charges.

"Mr. Trump's arraignment has generated unparalleled public interest and media attention. The populace rightly hungers for the most accurate and current information available. To suggest otherwise would be disingenuous."
