Garcia reportedly posted to X while he was hospitalized. One of his tweets read, "I’m worried :( I have to be at this weird hospital and they are trying to give me medicine and they have me on a hold for who knows how long, they will determine. Pray for me. God help me."


Moments later, he wrote, "Kinda funny how both Trump and I are in jail."

While a New York jury found the former president guilty on 34 felony counts, he has not been jailed.
