(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) — Former President Donald Trump on Monday made his first public appearance since his Senate acquittal over the weekend, greeting supporters as he passed them by them in his motorcade in West Palm Beach, Florida.
He gave his trademark thumbs-up to cheering supporters waving Trump flags and one holding a “Happy Presidents’ Day” sign. Many chanting “That’s my President!”

It was one of just a few public sightings of Trump off the golf course since he left the White House and relocated to his new home state on Jan. 20.
The massive show of support was also live-streamed by the YouTube channel Right Side Broadcasting Network.
Organizers billed the event as the “Presidents’ Day ‘Peaceful and Patriotic’ Pro-Trump Rally,” an apparent reference to Trump’s words at the end of his Jan. 6 rally just ahead of the attack on the Capitol. Despite the Democrats efforts to bury him, it appears Trump is not going away.
