Donald Trump on Saturday is scheduled to speak in Georgia, the first live event he has held since he became the first former president to be hit with a federal indictment.

Trump was indicted on 37 counts in connection with classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago. He has since then claimed in social media posts that the indictment, which includes charges under the Espionage Act, is a "witch hunt."

Upon arrival in Georgia, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) greeted him as he departed the plane, and falsely posted on Twitter that Trump won the state in 2020.
