On March 30, 2023, a Twitter and Reddit post claimed that former U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to take a "last stand" from the Applebee's in Trump Tower against law enforcement that was attempting to arrest him. This allegedly occurred after Trump was indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney's office, with charges centered around his role in covering up hush money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
According to the posts, Trump said, "I will not go quietly," and law enforcement were concerned that due to his familiarity with the "terrain of the fast casual dining establishment" he would have a "strategic advantage" that would make extracting him a "kill or be killed" scenario.
The posts are clearly satirical in nature as the one on Reddit has been labeled "It's satire," and the @MNateShyamalan Twitter account is well known for posting satirical tweets. There is also no Applebee's in Trump Tower in Manhattan.
As of this writing, Trump is presently at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida where he recently had a public dinner. Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called the indictment "Un-American" and said, "Florida will not assist in an extradition request."
Thus, there is no evidence that Trump will go to Manhattan to make a "last stand" and that it will occur at an Applebee's. The sources of this claim are labeled satire.
