FOX News correspondent David Spunt details final moments of Trump presidency on ‘Special Report’

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.

Trump waved back to the crowd as his motorcade slowly made its way through the streets after Air Force One touched down in the Sunshine State. 

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.'”
