Tight security over protest concerns

NEW YORK – Steel barriers separated crowds of protesters, roads were closed and traffic was diverted across a swath of Manhattan on Tuesday as former President Donald Trump arrived at a Manhattan courthouse for his arraignment.

Trump, who pumped his fist defiantly as he exited Trump Tower minutes earlier, was placed under arrest upon his arrival at the courthouse. Wearing a dark suit and red tie, Trump waved to the crowd as helicopters whirred above before he stepped inside.

Trump is the first former commander in chief to face criminal charges. The exact charges have yet to be revealed, but they stem from alleged hush-money payments to two women who claimed to have had sex with Trump before the 2016 election.
