Donald Trump, the former president, has not been affected by the news of his indictment.
Trump advisor Jason Miller claimed that he was in excellent spirits despite facing criminal accusations.
Miller told Breitbart News: “President Trump is in great spirits.”
“It’s how he powers through in the face of adversity and how he’s been doing this ever since he came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower is just amazing. No one else in history has been able to do this.”
“The more they attack him, the stronger he gets.”
Miller stated that Trump intends to surrender to New York law enforcement in response to the charge, so excluding the possibility that the former president would refuse to appear in court for his arraignment.
“There’s a bit of a delay period until you go in front of the judge. They do the arraignment. They do the, sort of, all the kind of the logistics type stuff, and then he’ll come on back to Florida.”
Miller reports that Trump intends to offer public statements after his New York arraignment.

The Trump confidant stated that the allegations were prompted by the political aspirations of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the prosecutor who impaneled the grand jury that accused Trump and was supported by George Soros.
“You look at Alvin Bragg, for example. He definitely wants to run for attorney general, maybe even mayor of New York or governor of New York someday. This is all about politics.”
“That’s the only thing that’s driving this.”
The accusations remain sealed, but it is believed they are related to payments allegedly made to pornographic performer Stormy Daniels.
According to the Daily Mail, Trump’s legal team anticipates that the judge assigned to the case would seek to gag the former president, preventing him from commenting publicly about the issue.
The bringing of criminal charges against Donald Trump establishes a new standard.
In American history, a former president has never been charged with or convicted of a crime.
Trump is also the top presidential contender for the Republican Party, with the legal controversy likely to dominate the 2024 race.
