Fuming Donald Trump is in utter disbelief that he will be dragged to court next week and face the prospect of up to four years behind bars.
The former US President is to forgo the humiliation of being paraded in handcuffs when he is criminally charged on Tuesday.
A deal has been agreed between the former president’s legal team and prosecutors in Manhattan over charges relating to his hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

After flying in from his Mar-A-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida, he will appear in court in New York.
Trump was utterly broadsided by the news he faces trial, “unable to comprehend” a grand jury had voted to indict him.
For the past few weeks, the former US Leader was said to be revelling in the attention he had been receiving ahead of his 2024 bid for the White House and the millions of dollars he had been sent by supporters.
But insiders told the Daily Star that he was horrified when a decision came on Thursday – weeks before he expected.
“Despite all his bravado, he has genuine concern,” they said.
“He is like a swan. Calm on the surface but frantic underneath.
“For months, Donald has been telling those close to him they would not dare to indict a former president.
“But now they have, he is unable to comprehend the possibility of being behind bars.
“Ironically, one of his most successful campaign chants was to ‘lock her up’ referring to rival Hillary Clinton, and now it is him facing being locked up.”
Although the indictment against Trump last night (FRI) remained sealed, it is understood he faces more than 30 counts of document fraud-related charges, two sources familiar with the matter have said.
The case against the former president hinges on an untested and therefore risky legal theory involving a complex interplay of laws, all amounting to a low-level felony.
If Trump were ultimately convicted, he would face a maximum sentence of four years, though prison time would not be mandatory.
Trump, who famously boasted in 2016 that he “could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and “wouldn’t lose voters,” now faces a threat to his liberty in a borough where more than 75% of voters – many of them potential jurors – went against him in the last election.
