Recent reporting from journalist Marta Dhanis revealed that a pro-Trump woman was arrested outside of the Manhattan courthouse after she got involved in a confrontation with a passerby and ultimately pulled out a weapon.
Dhanis wrote in a tweet, captioning footage of the woman’s arrest, “On the sidelines: a Trump supporter was just arrested across the street from the courthouse. She was holding a sign ‘I stand with Trump do you’ and got into a verbal fight with a passerby and then pulled out a knife. Court officers arrested her on the spot.”
