Given the hypothesis -advanced by himself- that the former US president will be arrested this Tuesday, the police authorities raised the alert level. Trump supporters want a moat at Mar-a-Lago.

However, Trump himself called on his supporters to organize mass protests: “Protest, we are going to take back control of our nation!” If they don’t fight like hell, they won’t have a country anymore,” Donald Trump said at the time. .
