Donald Trump social media post flagged by prosecutors in court filing

Prosecutors in Donald Trump's upcoming trial have asked for limits on what the ex-president can publicly say about the case, after he shared a threatening message online.

In a filing late on Friday night, the prosecutors said they feared Mr Trump might disclose confidential evidence.

They justified the move citing a post by Mr Trump shared on Friday, saying it targeted people involved in the case.

But Mr Trump's team insisted the post was directed at political opponents.

On the Truth social network Mr Trump wrote "IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I'M COMING AFTER YOU!" on Friday afternoon, just a day after he pleaded not guilty to four charges in the alleged election fraud case.

The charges - which include conspiracy to defraud the US, tampering with a witness and conspiracy against the rights of citizens - stem from the former president's actions in the wake of the 2020 election, including around the 6 January Capitol riot.
