The dead live longer. Donald J. Trump (74) appears to confirm this once again.
Just two days into his second impeachment, the 45th President of the United States made his public debut on Monday. He was frantically celebrated by hundreds of fans at his adopted home in Florida. And they were all sure: his political career was not over yet …
Trump was on his way back from the golf course to his new home residence, Mar-a-Lago, when he was met by supporters gathered on Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach. They waved US flags, held posters congratulating him on his acquittal, and kept shouting, “The United States! The United States of America!”
This is all in keeping with Presidents’ Day yesterday. This is a public holiday in honor of all the Presidents of the United States and is celebrated on the third Monday in February every year.
Trump, who was protected by Secret Service agents and sat in the back seat of a Chevrolet Suburban SUV, apparently enjoyed the reception. He commanded his driver to drive at a fast pace and waved his white polo shirt and white cap “Make America Great Again.” “We love you,” he shouted to the crowd. She smiled all over my face.
“This is unbelievable! 45 returns to Mar-a-Lago this afternoon after a great day on the Links (Edition: Golf Course) … and then …”, tweeted his colleague Dan Scavino, who was during his time at White Excel House on Trump’s social media manager.
“He is the greatest president of America,” said the organizer of the event yesterday of Trump.
Tara Crete, who drove from Naples on Florida’s west coast to the Atlantic Ocean to West Palm Beach to see her former boss, said what everyone in attendance seemed to be thinking about Trump’s political future. “It just started. We just woke up.”
Then she told local television station WPEC: “It will be good for everyone – even for people who are liberal and atheist or who don’t even like their country. Because what we want at heart is freedom! And that’s what President Trump stands for.”
On Sunday, fans had already expressed their sympathy for Trump, who has largely withdrawn from the crowd since leaving the White House on Jan.20. For example, a woman chartered a plane with a sign behind her that read: “We love you, President Trump. Happy Valentine’s Day!”
But it is not clear if Trump will rise from the ashes like Phoenix at some point and make a fresh attempt at the White House in 2024.
Because a new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University shows: 55 percent of Americans want Trump not to be allowed again in a political election, despite his narrow acquittal from the US Senate, in which seven Republicans voted “guilty” to run for the presidency.
In fact, Mitch McConnell, 78, a Republican Senate spokesperson, found Trump on Saturday just as morally guilty as the Democrats.
The powerful senator from Kentucky had voted for an acquittal on technical grounds. But then, in a damned speech about the storming of the US Capitol on the 6th of January, he declared: “There is no doubt that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day …”
Even so: the vast majority of Republican voters seem to see it differently. Quinnipiac Poll shows: 87 percent of them want Trump to be able to eat candy again in 2024 …
