New York (August 25,2023) : Former US President Donald Trump was arrested on Thursday in Georgia on charges of election conspiracy. Trump was booked at the Fulton County Jail and released on a $200,000 bond. The charges stem from Trump's attempt to pressure Georgia officials to overturn the results of the 2020 election. In a series of phone calls, Trump urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to overturn his loss in the state.

Trump is also accused of pressuring Georgia election officials to "recalculate" the vote and to "recertify" the results in his favor. The charges against Trump are the first time a former US president has been arrested on criminal charges. The case is being closely watched by legal experts and political observers. It is unclear what the long-term implications of Trump's arrest will be. However, it is a significant development in the ongoing investigation into Trump's efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
