    Why can’t the Prosecutor put in the terms of his surrender that Trump can’t Announce/Leak this ahead of time?
    Just curious…

  2. The Gamer on March 19, 2023 at 7:04 am

    No use talking to a person like trump the sissy because he is brainless.

  3. The Gamer on March 19, 2023 at 7:06 am

    What is so great about trump the sissy? Just throw him in jail for life.

  4. Diana Peters on March 19, 2023 at 7:07 am

    Good. Put x president in straight jacket. He is unbalanced.

  5. Edward Mullendore on March 19, 2023 at 7:08 am

    I heard trump already tried to run

    United States. The only country where the citizens have no form of Government issued identity card.
    Whose idea was against identity card? The left wing democrats. Without rolling out unique identity card number, who the F votes?
    The dead people of course. Such is the way of American corrupted politics.
    Driving license card is not a national identification card. Why don’t you guys use Library cards instead? FFS.
    Passport is not an identification card. It’s a BOOKLET.

  7. Jacob Beren on March 19, 2023 at 7:11 am

    It would be unbelievably foolish to arrest him.

  8. Tomaž Štamcar on March 19, 2023 at 7:12 am

    Americans beware. Don’t fall for the criminal NWO elite planned scams.
    Left and right fake politicians are keeping you fighting each other.
    This is their war against humanity and elections are a game.
    Team up against this left-right ultrarich marauding elite.

    Weird that Cohen, his attorney, served time for participating without the person who hired him, who had more responsibility in where the $ was coming from, and who knew the truth about what happened.

  10. My Cat on March 19, 2023 at 7:12 am

    Ari, Nixon at the point of his surrender, he knew it was over. Trump wants to say when it is over.

  11. Joe Swartz on March 19, 2023 at 7:12 am

    Trump is not shy to tell lies!!!

  12. Jon Hutton on March 19, 2023 at 7:14 am

    Wow there’s so many sad people commenting on here

  13. Dan White on March 19, 2023 at 7:17 am

    They’re arresting him for that lady that sued him. And then she had to pay him $300,000 because she lost but creepy Joe Brandon commit any crime he wants to hold Biden crime family. It’s okay double standard. You think you’re going to take President Trump down you will come back stronger than before he said he was going to take out the swamp in the last term and he cleaned out a lot of them. Now he said on this term using to take out more including the rhinos. You left the lunatics are. Anything to take out your opponent’s you’re a bunch of losers frauds and pieces of s***

  14. Solomon Ogunbitan on March 19, 2023 at 7:17 am

    Evil Democrats & DEEP STATE MAFIA MEDIA ELITES are trying to destroy democracy, freedom & rule of law in America. Democrats are WAR MONGERS & they will get what they are asking for. DEEP STATE Democrats & MAFIA JOURNALISTS & REPORTERS want A ONE PARTY STATE IN AMERICA through mass immigrations of dangerous refugees, drug traffickers, murderers, terrorists, scammers & MA-13 gangs. They refused to SECURE THE BORDERS because they want Texas, California, Arizona & NM States to become part of MEXICO in future. Trump will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN ( MAGA ). Joe Biden will MAKE AMERICA BANKRUPT AGAIN ( MABA ). Democrats bankrupt Detroit city and Puerto Rico state in 2011 & they’ll do another bankrupting of institutions again.

  15. Scary Garry SG1 on March 19, 2023 at 7:17 am

    LOL Ari Melber speaking as if he is establishing some ground rules on how all this is going to go. A cuckwit of the highest order.

  16. Myrna Tan on March 19, 2023 at 7:18 am

    There is justice after all

  17. Thrs Hwll on March 19, 2023 at 7:19 am

    LOCK HIM UP!!! Put him in Rikers

  18. Slander Rock on March 19, 2023 at 7:20 am


  19. Armaan on March 19, 2023 at 7:21 am

    May I ask a favor from the trumpists who are incoherent with rage?

    If you think that Joe Biden should be arrested, you should talk with a prosecutor. If not, then there probably isn’t evidence to warrant that. We have a justice system in America, and they’re processing trump. Now if you want the same to apply for democrats, why don’t you *pull yourself up by your bootstraps, collect the required evidence, *AND* present it to a prosecutor so those people can be charged* instead of whining about it online.

  20. Tone Balone on March 19, 2023 at 7:22 am

    This is soooooooo stupid, u guys are going after him for nothing, trump will use this to his advantage, u guys just guaranteed his victory. So so so dumb pathetically stupid.

  21. J R on March 19, 2023 at 7:23 am

    If his name wasn’t Trump he would never be indicted for this nonsense. And if it weren’t in NY, where the AG ran on "going after" Trump, this case would go nowhere, as it should. "Going after" Trump, regardless of any real evidence for a meaningful crime, has become a very profitable thing for the left. They’re still not quite as good as the old Soviet Union was at targeting political opponents, but they’re getting a lot of practice.

  22. towel head timmy on March 19, 2023 at 7:24 am

    Crazy how they have weaponized the legal system. This is disgusting and trash.

  23. Christopher Tadeo on March 19, 2023 at 7:24 am

    It will leave a distasteful precedent… 😳

  24. Mark Gee on March 19, 2023 at 7:26 am

    He couldn’t get more votes than Hillary or Joe. That’s what America thinks of him.

  25. Joe Swartz on March 19, 2023 at 7:26 am

    Trump misled innocent people

  30. Lasaro Teopilo on March 19, 2023 at 7:34 am

    Trump is grate God bless trump

  31. Stan on March 19, 2023 at 7:35 am

    We have only had one other former President who was clearly a criminal. The law is supposed to apply equally to all U.S. citizens. Trump will get his day in court and he has more than enough money to hire the best lawyers. Ari shouldn’t make such a big deal about this. Surprisingly the courts have held up fairly well during these trying times.

  32. C Anderson on March 19, 2023 at 7:39 am

    We should’ve taken back our democratic republic on January 6th, for real.

  33. BEE ANQUILIANO on March 19, 2023 at 7:40 am

    american hypocrites

  34. Deb Hammersley on March 19, 2023 at 7:41 am

    Our family is experiencing parental alienation with my sons 3 children. What is ex-wife is doing to their 3 children is despicable and it is so worrying what this will do to them emotionally and mentally. I am confused as to what our contract would have been as we don’t seem to be able to help them in this situation.

  35. Lasaro Teopilo on March 19, 2023 at 7:45 am

    MSNBC baise liers

  36. Robert Jung on March 19, 2023 at 7:45 am

    Trump for prison 2023! Time seems up, so get it done, now!

  37. Scott Krater on March 19, 2023 at 7:45 am

    Florida man’s supporters won’t have the balls to show up in NYC to protest in support.

  38. - Majadebijna on March 19, 2023 at 7:45 am

    Why is Trump not in prison yet? He would mass murderd his own people in corona time with denieing that corona was not deadly. Drink bleech was his sollution.

  39. Minuteman_1776 on March 19, 2023 at 7:46 am

    Ik msnbc would cream their pants after hearing about this

  40. Wesley Ashton on March 19, 2023 at 7:50 am

    Tre45on saying he will surrender to the authorities when indicted means, in Trump doublespeak, that Tre45on intends to take it on the lamb, jump ship, and scurry off to Mother Russia. Putin Tre45on Prison 2024!

  41. George Hopa on March 19, 2023 at 7:52 am

  43. Sunny Ray F. Amit on March 19, 2023 at 7:54 am

    The first con, liar, but moronic President of USA, and the first to be indicted. A very good lesson on leadership from the US of A.

  44. Mehdi on March 19, 2023 at 7:55 am

    "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." MLK
    Based on this quote, Donald Trump is the lowest form of life taking up space on this planet.
    Lock him up, and throw away the keys.

  45. Bo Hica on March 19, 2023 at 7:57 am

    Trump (might have) paid 1 person to keep quiet, Biden admitted on video that he used his position to get a lawyer fired because he was investigating Hunter, & used social media to keep hundreds of thousands of Americans quiet for an election etc.
    Hunter’s laptop is full of illegal acts & still has access to The Whitehouse & secret documents.
    If you weigh all of Trump’s illegal activities against Biden’s, Trump would look like a saint

  46. mark on March 19, 2023 at 7:58 am

    Trump is doing fine. Democrats are scared to death about the fact that joey is a complete failure.

  47. Brian persinger on March 19, 2023 at 7:59 am

    Time for the people to rise and take our country back the good old fashioned way 🎉🎇🎆🫡

  48. Linda Watkins on March 19, 2023 at 8:00 am

    Trump you should put you head down the rabbit hole 🕳 and let go 😂

  49. Lori Green on March 19, 2023 at 8:00 am

    Trump is calling on his followers to rally if he is arrested. I don’t know where they will be able to gather as the streets will be filled with cheering citizens celebrating his arrest 🎉

  50. robert riteman on March 19, 2023 at 8:01 am

    The NY case is not a strong case. The issue is why has the DA in Georgia not proceeded as the Grand Jury was completed 3 weeks ago and the Special Prosecutor in the classified documents needs to act soon. G-d forbid Trump becomes President again as it is not hyperbole to expect him to direct every arm of government to go after anyone he perceives as disloyal including not just Democrats, but Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, Adam Kizinger, CNN, MSBC, Ukraine, Israel etc.
