Former President Donald Trump said during an interview Tuesday evening that officials in the Manhattan courthouse where he was arrested apologized to him and were “actually crying.”
Trump, who made the remarks during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, said that the people at the courthouse were “incredible.”
“When I went to the courthouse, which is also a prison in a sense, they signed me in and I’ll tell you, people were crying,” he said. “People that work there, professionally work there, that have no problems putting in murderers and they see everybody. It’s tough, tough place and they were crying. They were actually crying.”
“They said, ‘I’m sorry.’ They’d say, ‘2024, sir. 2024.’ And tears are pouring down their eyes. I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said. “Those people are phenomenal. Those are your police. Those are the people that work at the courthouse. They’re unbelievable people. Many of them were in tears or close to it. Many apologies. ‘We’re sorry, sir. We’re sorry.’ They had to have me do certain things they said. They said, ‘Sir, I can’t believe I have to ask you. I can’t even believe that I have to ask you to do it.’ You can see, so in one sense, it was beautiful because they get it. In another sense, you know, it’s nasty.”
Trump concluded on the subject by saying that “in many ways, it was a beautiful day because the people understand.”
TRUMP ON ARRAIGNMENT: “People were crying — people that worked there, professionally worked there —that have no problems putting in murderers and they see everybody. It’s a tough place and they were crying. […] They’d say, ‘2024, sir.’”
