America continues to divide and remain in suspense over the possible arrest of Donald Trump, in the case of porn star Stormy Daniels, which could take place today.

The Manhattan prosecutor's office, according to Fox, has not yet formally notified the former president if it intends to indict him for paying the porn star.

According to sources, there is also the possibility that the prosecutor Alvin Bragg decides not to proceed.

One or more witnesses will be heard at 19.00 Italian by the grand jury, then the deliberations will begin.

In any case, Trump could appear at the New York prosecutor's office next week. 

Meanwhile, New York is armored, with police, barriers and cameras in front of the Manhattan courthouse and Trump Tower.

But other major American cities are also doing it, from the capital (where an emergency declaration by the Congressional police is expected) to Los Angeles, due to fear of protests increased by the surge in online threats, while a dangerous institutional clash between the House and attorney Alvin Bragg.

The tycoon had announced that he would end up in handcuffs on March 21, urging his fans to demonstrate and "take back the country", along the lines of what he did at the rally on January 6, 2021 in which he instigated them to march on the Capitol to block the certification of victory by Joe Biden.

But the timing of the arrest, which would be the first of a former US president, still appears uncertain. 

The idea of ​​a parade in front of television cameras and journalists at the Manhattan prosecutor's office would not displease the tycoon who, with his collaborators in Mar-a-Lago, also joked about the possibility of smiling at the media.

The former president believes he is ready for the 'perp walk', or the practice commonly used by the police to expose an arrested suspect to the cameras for photos and videos.

The New York Times recounts the mood of the tycoon in view of his indictment, according to which his advisers are not sure whether his attitude is bravado or resignation for what awaits him.

Trump wouldn't be bothered by the details of where and how he'll be filmed: what he wants is a chance to show the public that he's not sneaking away in shame.
