On the day that former President Donald Trump was detained in Fulton County, Georgia, President Joe Biden conducted an online fundraising campaign, calling it a “great day” to contribute to his cause.

Trump turned himself in and was arrested by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office on charges related to the indictment brought by District Attorney Fani Willis. A Fulton County grand jury returned a 98-page, 41-count indictment against him and 18 other people last week.

Biden took the opportunity to fundraise for his 2024 re-election campaign.

“Apropos of nothing, I think today’s a great day to give to my campaign,” Biden tweeted along with a link to his Act Blue donation page that calls on his supporters to “donate to the Biden-Harris campaign to fight back against MAGA Republicans.”

The Article III Project’s Mike Davis took to Twitter, now rebranded as “X,” to slam Biden for fundraising on the same day “his chief political rival got booked.”

“Biden posted this as his chief political rival got booked. Again. By another Democrat prosecutor in another Democrat hellhole. After colluding with the Biden Justice Department,” Davis posted online.

Davis then called on House Republicans to open an impeachment inquiry on Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Trump revealed that Georgia officials “insisted” he have a mugshot taken Thursday night during processing at the Fulton County Jail.

Trump, the current 2024 Republican front-runner, told Fox News in an interview that doing so was “not a comfortable feeling—especially when you’ve done nothing wrong.”

Trump turned himself in Thursday night at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia, after being charged in District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation into his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in the state, Fox News reported.

Trump told FOX that officials in Georgia “insisted” on a mugshot.

“They insisted on a mugshot and I agreed to do that,” he said. “This is the only time I’ve ever taken a mugshot. It is not a comfortable feeling — especially when you’ve done nothing wrong.”

“This is all about election interference,” Trump said. “It all comes through Washington and the DOJ and Crooked Joe Biden — nothing like this has ever happened in our country before.”

Trump said the United States is “doing horribly, but now, it is doing worse because we have become a Third World country.”

Trump’s bail was set at $200,000 and he was quickly processed and released Thursday evening.

His formal arraignment, where he will likely plead not guilty, is expected to take place in early September.

Trump was charged with one count of violating the Georgia RICO Act as well as six counts of criminal conspiracy, three counts of criminal solicitation, one count of filing false documents, and two counts of making false statements.

Trump, his former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, his former attorneys Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Kenneth Chesebro, Jeff Clark, and John Eastman, among others, were all charged as part of the Fulton County investigation.

Willis requested on Thursday that the trial date for Trump and his 18 co-defendants in the case be set for October 23. The action was taken in response to the defendant Kenneth Chesebro’s motion for a speedy trial.

Due to the fact that Chesebro was the only defendant to request a speedy trial, the judge only approved the October 23 trial date for him.

Trump sent out a dire statement to supporters amid his historic booking at Georgia’s “notoriously violent” Fulton County Jail, where his historic mugshot was taken.

“This is my last text to you before my arrest, Patriot. I hope you’ll read my personal note,” read a text from the Trump 2024 campaign on Thursday evening.

“Today, I will be going to the notoriously violent jail in Fulton County, Georgia where I will be ARRESTED despite having committed NO CRIME. Isn’t it interesting that I went my entire life without ever getting arrested. But suddenly out of nowhere, once I decided to run for president as a political outsider and fight for the forgotten citizens of our country, I get ARRESTED FOUR TIMES within the span of just 5 months?” the text message began.

“Not only that, a judge has ruled that today’s spectacle may be televised for the entire world to see. The American people know what’s going on. This is a punishment handed down from the Deep State for daring to challenge the status quo and give a voice to the Silent Majority. The Left wants to intimidate YOU out of voting for a political outsider who puts the American people FIRST. But today, I’m walking into the lion’s den with one simple message on behalf of our entire movement: I WILL NEVER SURRENDER OUR MISSION TO SAVE AMERICA,” the message continued.

“When I walk into the jail to get wrongfully arrested, I will not cower, I will not sulk. I will stand tall and remain resolute in our mission to save America. And if you see me on TV during my sham arrest, just remember that YOU are the source of my courage, my hope, and my resolve to save our country,” it added.

The message concluded: “If you are doing poorly due to the sinister people in control of our country right now, don’t even think about donating! But if you can, please make a contribution to SAVE AMERICA during this dark chapter in our nation’s history.”
