WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Two days after the U.S. Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial, devotees of the Palm Beach resident held a rally to show their support for him.

In what was billed as a "peaceful and patriotic" pro-Trump rally, the Presidents Day event took place just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in West Palm Beach.
