"A law enforcement source familiar with the arraignment has described Mr Trump's claim as "absolute BS".
"There were zero people crying. There were zero people saying 'I'm sorry,'" the source told Yahoo News.
In the interview aired on Tuesday on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show, Mr Trump described how he was processed at the criminal court by officials, including police. He said "tears were pouring down their eyes".
"They were incredible," he said of the staff. "When I went to the courthouse, which is also a prison in a sense, they signed me in and I'll tell you people were crying.
"People that work there. Professionally work there that have no problems putting in murderers and they see everybody.
"It's a tough, tough place and they were crying. They were actually crying. They said, 'I'm sorry.'"
In the interview, Mr Trump maintained he is innocent and argued there is no case against him.
He touted the assessment of a critic of his, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who told CNN last week that the first-ever indictment against a former US president had "landed like a dud"."
