WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Supporters of former president Donald Trump rallied Monday morning in West Palm Beach prior to his departure from Palm Beach International Airport to New York for his arraignment.

Supporters began lining up near the 800 block of Southern Boulevard at about 6 a.m. before the 10 a.m. rally. Southern Boulevard is the route Trump usually takes whenever he wants to fly out of Palm Beach International Airport.

Backers of the former president are rallying against the indictment of Trump in connection with the ongoing investigation by New York prosecutors into a hush-money scheme involving adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

"It's just an extenuation of a continued attack on president Trump on nothing," a supporter said. "Nothing-burgers picking on him and trumping up charges to create an illusion that he's something negative for the country."

Trump departed from Palm Beach International Airport just before 1 p.m. on his private plane Monday to New York to face a judge in Tuesday's arraignment.

Following his court appearance, Trump is planning to deliver remarks at his Mar-a-Lago resort Tuesday night.
