On Monday, barricades arrived outside of the Manhattan Criminal Court in New York City, as law enforcement officials are bracing for any potential charges against former United States President Donald J. Trump, who warned over the weekend that he could be arrested and charged as soon as Tuesday in relation to a hush-money probe.

Workers were witnessed unloading steel barricades from a New York City Police Department truck and stacking them outside the courthouse and the Manhattan district attorney’s offices in lower Manhattan, the Hill is reporting.

NBC New York reported over the weekend that local, state and federal law enforcement were readying for a possible indictment for the former president, considering security around the Manhattan Criminal Court in the event that former president Trump is charged. 

In a social media post that was published on Truth Social, Trump wrote that he anticipated that he would be arrested on Tuesday in connection with the alleged hush-money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels, urging his supporters to protest.

“Protest, take our nation back!” Trump said in the post.
