Former President Trump received a warm greeting from supporters in South Florida on Wednesday morning as he made his way to his Mar-a-Lago resort after leaving the White House for the last time as the commander-in-chief.
Fans waved flags and held up signs and cell phones in West Palm Beach as they cheered Trump’s return to the state, where he plans to spend his immediate post-presidency.
“We just wanted to show him how much we appreciate him,” Anita Bargas, who said she came from Texas to show her support, told WPLG-TV in Miami.

Daniel Rakus of Palm Beach told the Washington Examiner he was there to show Trump “he’s not alone. He did a great job. We support him.'”
