Trump surprises supporters holding Presidents Day rally in his honor

News

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WJW) — Former President Donald Trump surprised his supporters by making an appearance at their Presidents Day rally.

A large crowd gathered in West Palm Beach Monday afternoon to show their support for Trump.

The event, billed as a “peaceful and patriotic” pro-Trump rally, was held on the corner of Southern Boulevard and Parker Avenue, which is located near Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club.

Rally organizers say the event intended to support “America’s greatest president.” Photos from the rally show attendees displaying pro-Trump signs and waving flags.

While the rally was underway, Trump’s motorcade drove by. The former president was seen smiling and giving “two thumbs up” to his supporters.

The rally comes just days after Trump was acquitted by a Senate vote of 57-43 in his second impeachment trial. Seven Republican senators joined all Democrats in voting in favor of convicting the former president.

43 Republican senators voted Trump was “not guilty” of inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection by supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol building to stop lawmakers from certifying Democratic President Joe Biden’s election victory, resulting in the deaths of five people, including a police officer.

If Trump had been convicted, the Senate would have taken a second vote on whether to ban him from running for office again.
