President Donald J. Trump and others surrendered to Fulton County yesterday on ‘election interference.’
Here’s What Happened
Trump has made history as not only the first U.S. president — sitting or former — to face criminal charges but the first to have their mug shot taken.
“I never heard the words ‘mug shot.’ They didn’t teach me that the Wharton School of Finance,” Trump joked while speaking to host Greg Kelly on “Greg Kelly Reports.”
“It’s a very sad experience, and it’s a very sad day for our country. This is a weaponized Justice Department,” he added.
Trump told Newsmax in an interview aboard his private plane on the way back from his booking that it been a “terrible experience” but added that he was “treated very nicely.”
Trump had come and gone from the Fulton County Jail by about 8 p.m. on the East Coast.
Here are the charges Trump faces from Fulton County:

Trump’s Return to Twitter
Trump went back online on X, formerly known as Twitter, for the first time since January 8, 2021, to post his mugshot.
Twitter permanently banned Trump in January 2021 for allegedly inciting or justifying violence during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol ‘mayhem’.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk reinstated Trump’s account in November 2022 after a majority of users voted for the former president to return to the platform in a poll.
The night before Trump turned himself in, he was interviewed by Tucker Carlson, former Fox News anchor.
That same evening, the first Republican debates took place, which garnered less than 13 million people watching.
