*Trump leaves court after arraignment*
The president has left the Manhattan criminal court where he surrendered and pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts related to falsifying business records. US media has also reported the charges include a “conspiracy” count.
Trump left in a motorcade.
*‘Dark day for our country,’ says Ted Cruz*
Republican Senator Ted Cruz has decried the charges against Trump, saying that the former president’s arrest makes a ‘mockery of the rule of law’.
In a social media post, Cruz tried to link Alvin Bragg, the prosecutor overseeing the case, to liberal donor George Soros – an accusation that features frequently in Republicans’ criticism of the charges. Soros denies donating to Bragg or ever communicating with him.
“Not only is the indictment frivolous, this political persecution marks a dark day for our country,” Cruz wrote.
