Two days removed from his second impeachment acquittal, former President Donald Trump was returning from a day of golf when he was greeted by a throng of flag-waving fans as he neared his Mar-a-Lago estate.
The President's Day scene in West Palm Beach, Fla., which included jubilant supporters with signs that declared "Trump won," even impressed Dan Scavino, a veteran of many of his boss' sold-out rallies. "This is unbelievable," the longtime aide tweeted Monday.
The spontaneous event was a not-so-subtle reminder that the Twitter-banished, twice-impeached 45th president remains a continuing force inside the GOP. Anyone who thinks otherwise does so at their own peril.
Shortly after the Senate voted Saturday to acquit him, Trump sent out a cryptic message making clear he has little intention of fading into history like most former presidents.
