Trump campaign rally opens with January 6 choir in Waco

Donald Trump has suggested that Manhattan’s district attorney has already dropped the Stormy Daniels hush money case, days after he set off a frenzied news cycle by claiming he would be arrested over the matter.

Speaking to reporters on his plane following a campaign speech in Waco, Texas, he said: “I think they’ve already dropped the case.

“It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing.”

The Manhattan grand jury probing the former president is expected to reconvene in the coming week following several delays, with New York County’s district attorney Alvin Bragg calling off grand jury hearings on 22 and 23 March.

It comes as Mr Trump’s personal lawyer denounced his client’s online attacks against the DA, including a post with a baseball bat next to Mr Bragg.

“I’m not his social media consultant. I think that was an ill-advised post that one of his social media people put up & he quickly took down,” Joe Tacopina told NBC News.

During the Waco rally, Trump called the 2024 election “the final battle,” and went after his potential main rival, Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
