Presidents Day was marked by former President Trump thanking a crowd of supporters assembled near his home in South Florida.
On Monday, supporters of the former president gathered in West Palm Beach, Florida, a few miles east of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort.
The former president’s motorcade rolled through the crowd.

In his Senate impeachment trial, the rally was allegedly arranged to mark Presidents Day and to celebrate Trump’s acquittal on Saturday, Feb. 13.
The former president was charged with one count of inciting insurrection. On Jan. 13, with 10 Republicans joining all 222 Democrats in the chamber in voting to impeach, and 197 Republicans opposing, Trump was impeached by the House.
Seven GOP senators joined all of the 50 Democrats in the Senate on Saturday in voting to convict Trump. Of the 67 needed to convict Trump, the count was 10 votes shy.
