The former President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has pleaded not guilty to 37 charges related to the alleged mishandling of classified documents while he was in office.


The embattled ex-president had earlier surrendered himself at a Federal Court in Miami, Florida for allegedly keeping and hiding classified documents.


Trump’s lawyers asked for a jury trial during the former president’s arraignment on Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Miami.


“We most certainly enter a plea of not guilty,” Trump attorney Todd Blanche told the judge.


Trump who reportedly arrived at the court on Tuesday was charged with retaining strategic national security documents and obstructing efforts by security agents to retrieve them from him according to a CBS report.
