Former US President Donald Trump left the courtroom after his appearance in a Miami court on Tuesday and stopped with his entourage at Versailles, a well-known restaurant in the city’s Little Havana area.
Many of Trump’s supporters were waiting to celebrate his birthday at the restaurant and celebrate with him. As Trump’s birthday was the next day, Wednesday, Trump’s supporters sang happy birthday songs.
Donald Trump also appeared in good spirits after a very tense day, while he was unusually quiet in the courtroom.
There, he bowed in prayer before two priests and a rabbi, shook hands with supporters, posed for photos, and even cracked a few jokes along with smiles.
During this time, his comments were initially quite surprising, but later he said, “We have a government that is out of control.”
Trump, who has been called a ‘showman’, had encouraged supporters to attend a federal court appearance that drew hundreds of people to mark his indictment in the classified documents case.

In some posts on his social media platform, Donald Trump described it as a ‘witch hunt’ and ‘one of the saddest days in the history’ of the country.
Also, in his speech at the golf club, Trump reiterated his claims that the investigation against him was politically motivated and called the prosecutors “thugs”.
He also claimed that he was so busy that he did not have time to go through all the documents and memorabilia that he had kept.

Donald Trump also said that if he is elected president next year, he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate President Joe Biden and his family.
The crowd gathered at the golf club also welcomed him with slogans of ‘Happy Birthday’.
Earlier on Tuesday, while appearing in court along with his entourage, he posted on social media against the prosecution saying that he had done nothing wrong and was being harassed for political purposes.
But inside the courtroom, he sat quietly as his lawyer entered a plea on his behalf after his brief arrest in which he pleaded not guilty to all 37 charges. Later the court allowed them to go.
