Trump’s Terrible Experience Being Booked in Georgia
Former President Donald Trump recounted his “terrible” experience being booked in Georgia on Friday, saying he was treated “like a common criminal.”
Trump was indicted on four criminal charges related to his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Georgia. He surrendered to the Fulton County Jail on Thursday and was released on a $250,000 bond.
In an interview with Newsmax, Trump said he was “treated very badly” by the jail staff. He said he was “handcuffed and shackled” and “made to wait for hours” before being booked.
Trump also said he was “denied food and water” and “not allowed to make a phone call.” He said he was “treated like a common criminal” and that it was “a terrible experience.”
Trump’s comments have been met with skepticism by some, who have pointed out that he is not the first former president to be booked in jail. However, Trump’s supporters have defended him, saying that he was treated unfairly.
The implications of Trump’s experience are still unclear. However, it is likely to further fuel the debate over his treatment by law enforcement. It is also likely to be used by Trump’s supporters to rally support for him.
