Just days before his long-awaited and highly-publicized indictment in New York City, former President Donald Trump spent his Saturday “blowing off steam” by himself on the driving range of the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. The New York Times, citing half a dozen people who interacted with Trump in the days leading up to the hearing, reported that the former president seemed “subdued” and “pensive” even as he outwardly appeared cheerful.
Former President Trump was hit with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to a $130,000 hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. Despite denying the affair, Trump appeared in a Manhattan courtroom and pleaded not guilty on Tuesday.
To pass the time and relieve his tension, Trump took several trips to the driving range, accompanied only by his Secret Service. Witnesses noted that although Trump was a skilled golfer, he seemed to be agitated and hit ball after ball for roughly 10 minutes at a time, as if he was trying to “blow off steam.” Trump took some brief breaks to bask in the occasional compliments from onlookers and to discuss his performance in 2024 2024 polls.
Trump International Golf Club, one of the President’s many golf courses, is known for its spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway and exclusive amenities. The course plays host to a variety of championship events and members-only tournaments, and has received numerous awards for its design and services.
