Mar-a-Lago events suspended as Trump huddles with shaken advisers

Weekend events at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, were suspended on Friday as the former president was "huddling" with his attorneys after being blindsided by the grand jury indictment handed up against him after payments to the porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump, the New York Post reported, is meeting with advisers who were said to be "shaken" by the news of dozens of criminal charges related to a $130,000 payment given to Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Gregory Clifford.

"It won't be business as usual," a source told the Post. "They expected this but there is shock now that it's happened.

"It's real now. And they are worried about a surprise."

Separately, a source told the outlet that Trump had been "a little nervous and somber" about the indictment, but he has since "become more upbeat and thinks public opinion is on his side and that this will help him win the election".

Trump received formal notification of the charges, which have yet to be unsealed, stemming from a grand jury empaneled by the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg. Confirmation of the indictment came on Thursday after reports suggested that the grand jury would not sit again until May.

On 23 March, Trump indicated that he believed he had beaten the rap when he shared a now-deleted post on his Truth Social network of himself holding a baseball bat next to a photo of Bragg and later warned of the potential for "death and destruction" if he was charged.
