The son of former US President Donald Trump Jr reacted to his father’s arrest by posting an inverted flag of the country on social networks. He stated that this was only “the beginning of the road to tyranny”.
Trump Jr. expressed his disagreement with the actions of the American authorities regarding his father by posting an inverted US flag. The gesture has become a tradition since the 2020 riots, with the inverted flag flown in case of disasters and emergencies.

The former US president was arrested in New York and taken to the Manhattan prosecutor’s office before charges are filed. A charge of falsifying business records can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor in New York State. However, the prosecutor’s office upgraded all the charges to criminal offenses.

On his social network, Trump Sr. wrote that he could not believe that this was happening in America. His words brought “News”. Supporters and opponents of Trump gathered for a rally outside the courthouse in New York. There are also journalists and police officers.
