Trump says he will be arrested on Tuesday

Former US President Donald Trump has said in a social media post that he will be arrested on Tuesday. He did not provide further details.

On his Truth Social account on Saturday, Trump said "illegal leaks" from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office "indicate" that the "far and away leading Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday of next week."

He called on his supporters to protest.

New York prosecutors have been investigating a hush money payment that was allegedly made to a porn star, who says she had an affair with Trump.
