Donald Trump is set to appear in court in Miami on Tuesday, February 21st, 2023, to face charges related to keeping national-security documents when he left office and lying to officials who sought to recover them.
This will be the second courtroom visit for Trump since April, when he pleaded not guilty to charges in New York stemming from a hush-money payment to a porn star.
The charges against Trump are the first of their kind for a current or former president.
According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, Trump holds a wide lead over his rivals for the Republican nomination for the 2024 presidential election, with 81% of Republican voters viewing the charges against him as politically motivated.
Trump has maintained his innocence and portrayed the case as an effort to undermine his re-election effort.
The article mentions that Joe Biden
, the current President of the United States, has kept his distance from a specific case and declined to comment on it.
