The possibility that Donald Trump could be accused of allegedly covering up bribes to silence a porn star during his 2016 campaign is generating sympathy for the former Republican president, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu said Sunday.

Trump, whose supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 to try to reverse his defeat in the 2020 presidential election, said on Saturday (18) in a publication on social networks that he expects to be arrested on Tuesday (21) — citing leaks from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office — and called on people to protest. He did not discuss the potential charges in his post.

“This is creating a lot of sympathy for the former president,” Sununu told the “State of the Union” program on the CNN saying he spoke to some people on Sunday who weren’t “big Trump supporters, but they all said … they felt he was being attacked.”

Trump is seeking the 2024 Republican nomination. Sununu, a relative moderate, is considering a candidacy.

A spokesman for Trump said the former president was not notified of any arrests and Trump provided no evidence of leaks from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

No US president – ​​during or after his term – has ever faced criminal charges.

Trump has said he will continue to campaign even if he is accused of a crime.
