After the indictment against Trump, the Secret Service takes the lead and determines that he is in handcuffs.

According to Fox News, “the same sources familiar with the plan said security precautions will be taken in and around the courthouse in lower Manhattan. The Secret Service will be at the forefront of what is allowed and what is not allowed. The source warned, for example, that he was deciding whether or not to handcuff the former president. They set the tone and accompany him to court. “There will be coordination between all of us,” the source said, “but we will be moving on to the Secret Service.”
For those of you who have always wanted to see Donald Trump taken away in handcuffs, your dream may come true next week.
Trump is unlikely to be handcuffed. It makes sense that the Secret Service is leading because the Secret Service is responsible for protecting current and former presidents.
Images of Trump in cuffs are in political ruin, and since he is a 76-year-old man who has not been charged with a violent crime, he probably won’t.
However, after Trump’s indictment in Manhattan, the floodgates could be opened for other lawsuits against the failed former president, his businesses and his family.
