The dead live long. Donald J. Trump (74) confirms this saying once again.
Just two days after his second impeachment proceeding, the 45th president of the USA appeared in public for the first time on Monday. He was enthusiastically celebrated by hundreds of fans in his adopted home Florida. And they were all certain: their political life is over …
Trump was returning from a golf course to his new primary residence, Mar-a-Lago, when he met supporters who had gathered on Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach. They waved American flags, put up posters to congratulate them on their acquittal and they kept shouting, “America! America! “
All this in keeping with yesterday’s “President’s Day”. It is a public holiday in honor of all American presidents and is celebrated on the third Monday in February each year.
Trump, who was guarded by secret service agents and sat on the back seat of an armored Chevrolet Suburban SUV, clearly enjoyed the reception.
