Hero's welcome for Trump as supporters line his route home from golf

Hero’s welcome for Trump as supporters line his route home from the golf course on Presidents’ Day – amid backlash against Republicans who voted to impeach him

  • The former President was acquitted at his second Senate impeachment trial over the weekend
  • He was pictured for the first time since the decision in West Palm Beach, Florida on Monday  

Donald Trump was on Monday given a hero’s welcome as his supporters lined his route home from the golf course on Presidents’ Day. 

The former President was acquitted at his second Senate impeachment trial over the weekend. 

He was pictured for the first time since the decision in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

The Senate verdict Saturday, with its 57-43 majority falling 10 votes short of the two-thirds needed to convict Trump, hardly put to rest the debate about the Republican former president’s culpability for the January 6 assault.  

The Senate acquitted Trump of a charge of ‘incitement of insurrection’ after House prosecutors laid out a case that he was an ‘inciter in chief’ who unleashed a mob by stoking a monthslong campaign of spreading debunked conspiracy theories and false violent rhetoric that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

Trump’s lawyers countered that Trump’s words were not intended to incite the violence and that impeachment was nothing but a ‘witch hunt’ designed to prevent him from serving in office again.
