It was a long day for former President Donald Trump, as he traveled from Trump Tower in midtown to the Manhattan Criminal Court, where he surrendered to law enforcement and learned the exact charges he faces for alleged hush money payments. And it was a long day for everyone else touched by the event, from supporters to opponents to lawyers, police and preachers.
The notoriously outspoken former president slipped in and out of the courthouse quietly in a black SUV. The crowd in lower Manhattan displayed their anger or approval before fixing their eyes on the sight of one of the most famous men in America, who was once president of the United States and who is now running to be president again, turning himself in for arrest.
Photographer Yunghi Kim spent the day with the crowds, and her photos captured the spectacle that even the former president called “surreal.”
