The charges relate to his alleged attempts to subvert the 2020 election results in Georgia. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and called the charges politically motivated.
The trial is proposed to begin in March, and Trump, currently leading the Republican race for the 2024 presidential nomination, has said he will not participate in the first Republican televised debate.
Later on Monday Mr Trump posted to his social media platform, Truth Social:
“Can you believe it? I’ll be going to Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday to be ARRESTED by a Radical Left District Attorney, Fani Willis.”
