Former President Donald Trump has decided to cancel a press conference that was set to take place next week at his Bedminster club. He had previously promised to present evidence of alleged election fraud in Georgia during the 2020 presidential election.
Trump used his social media platform, Truth Social, to announce the cancellation on Thursday night. He explained that his legal team advised him to do so, marking a change in plans.’
This change comes after Trump’s recent announcement earlier in the week, where he said he would reveal an “irrefutable” report on election fraud in Georgia. The press conference was scheduled to happen at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey on Monday morning.
In his message on Truth Social, Trump mentioned, “My lawyers would prefer to present this undeniable evidence of Election Fraud & Irregularities through formal Legal Filings as we fight against this indictment.” He was indicted on Monday by a Georgia grand jury on various counts, including violating Georgia’s anti-racketeering law and conspiracy. These charges relate to his alleged attempts to remain in power after losing to Democrat Joe Biden in the last election.
Trump’s first announcement about the press conference was made on Truth Social right after news of his indictment came out. In the same post, he expressed confidence that the upcoming report would lead to dropping all charges against him and others involved. He believed in a “complete exoneration!” The indictment also involved 19 other individuals, including some close to Trump.
Apart from the Georgia indictment, Trump is dealing with three other criminal cases. One was brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, and two federal cases were initiated by Special Counsel Jack Smith. These legal issues continue to shape Trump’s post-presidential journey.
