PALM BEACH, Fla. — After a dramatic week at Mar-a-Lago, a caravan of pro-Donald Trump supporters parked themselves outside the former president's resort Saturday.

Even in the rain, hundreds of people in decorated trucks, cars, motorcycles, and even a bus, drove from Hialeah to Mar-a-Lago.

The caravan, filled with mainly Cuban-Americans, took to honking, cheering and flag-waving for the former president.

"I believe he saved this nation single-handedly and I believe that what happened to him was wrong," Terri Privett said. "I just think it was a made-up excuse to get into the man's home to harass him."

This comes after the FBI issued a search warrant and removed 28 boxes of items from Mar-a-Lago, including documents labeled as confidential and top secret.

Many in this caravan, like Carlos Ricart, drove north from Hialeah.

"I think that it was mostly a theater," Ricart said. "I don't think that they are doing anything real and the things that they are accusing him of is all bogus."

Many in the caravan said they are hoping Trump looks to the White House as his residence in 2024.
