If a major demonstration takes place next week, NYPD sources say the force may be deployed to the Strategic Response Group, a unit of about 700 hundred members trained in the Strategic Response Group. If necessary, the department may increase that response by deploying a Level 4 alert, which will keep eight police and a sergeant on alert in all areas.
While online harassment persisted since Saturday evening, Law enforcement at all levels appears to be prepared to prevent widespread violence like that seen in the Jan. 6 congressional riots, CNN reported.
The arrangements reportedly led to a meeting between senior officials from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. That could sue Trump as early as next week for an allegation of an undisclosed payment to Stormy Daniels, a security guard at the lower Manhattan state Supreme Court building. and the New York City Police Department.
After Trump’s Saturday message on Truth Social included calls for protests across the country. Some of his most staunch supporters online began tossing ideas in pro-Trump and far-right internet forums. “The Donald” violent protest ideas began to gain widespread support.
“Besiege Mar-A-Lago or wherever he is present. and prevent ‘Law enforcement agencies’ come in,” one commenter wrote. It received hundreds of positive votes.
Another user replied that “What if they use chopper to avoid the Patriot moat?”
The idea of building a defensive shield around Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate has sparked talks about what rifle rounds could destroy low-flying planes being sent into the custody of the former president.
Earlier on Saturday morning, “Stop the Steal” leader Ali Alexander advised the “100,000 Patriots” should “shut off all routes to Mar-a-Lago.”
Despite calling for action openly But Alexander said he would not participate in the event.
Alexander claimed in the telegram that he had spoken to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. which has shown no interest in holding another protest on Trump’s behalf.
“He didn’t protest either,” he added of Jones. “Both of us have had enough fights against the government. No billionaire will cover our expenses.”
During Saturday’s “emergency” broadcast, Jones deliberately tried to insert a needle while backing Trump’s claim for protests about possible allegations. and warned his followers of the possible negative consequences of such an incident becoming violent.
“Don’t incite violence,” Jones said, warning his followers about the suspicious spies trying to hijack Trump supporters.
Neither Alexander nor Jones immediately responded to The Daily Beast’s request for comment.
But not just Jones and Alexander. Many in Trump World have never heard of concrete protest plans.
“The negatives,” Joseph McBride, a Trump attorney and expert, told The Daily Beast on Jan. 6, “only is prayer,” he added.
Other MAGA dignitaries lashed out at Trump, even suggesting a protest after the Jan. 6 incident.
“Last time a die-hard Trump fan protested on his behalf. He let them all rot in prison without taking a single penny from him for legal fees,” right-wing expert Jesse Kelly. write“Not money, shame on him for this. Don’t go to the blue area and protest for this man. Ignore this.”
Similarly, Steve Bannon’s ally Grace Chong barred Trump supporters from joining the protests. announce: “Don’t be stupid”
If Trump is charged Authorities will set a date and time for his surrender, at which point he will be formally charged and fingerprinted and shot. That could cause both pro-Trump and anti-Trump protesters to gather at Manhattan Criminal Court. a gathering that officials fear could lead to violent clashes, CNN reported.
New York City Police and the FBI have also coordinated contingency plans to deal with growing threats to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his staff. If radical Trump supporters like the Proud Boys target them CNN reported, citing news sources.
Part of these conversations is how to transport Trump. Secret Service officials responsible for Trump’s profile in South Florida and officials in New York are coordinating how they can get Trump to the District Attorney’s office through protesters and the media. Part of that discussion included the need to secure a space for press conferences outside court or at Trump Tower.
