(PresidentialInsider.com)- Appearing at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in his luxurious Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago resort on Saturday night, former President Donald Trump received a thunderous applause and standing ovation from the crowd.
The event was attended by popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis along with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Has President Joe Biden ever received support like this in his life?
The footage was originally tweeted by Anthony Sabatini, a Florida state representative who is running for the United States Congress. In the clip, you can also see people taking selfies and asking for photographs, while the former president waves at the crowd.
“Great to be with true GOAT tonight!” Sabatini said, referencing the slang term “Greatest of All Time.”
Other special guests at the large event included Senator Rick Scott, former Commerce Secretary under the Trump administration, Wilbur Ross, and congressmen Byron Donalds and Brian Mast.
Former Secretary of State Pompeo was a keynote speaker at the event, though press coverage of what was said is limited. While some social media clips exist, it was completely closed off to the press. And with the way they treated former President Trump, it’s not hard to see why.
Florida Governor Ron De Santis is one of the most popular possible Republican candidates in the 2024 election, and while he is very close to the former president, it is not immediately clear whether the two intend to go up against one another in the primary race.
Former President Trump has indicated several times that he is “always up for a good fight” and considering the race, and this week, he also said that he is “beyond seriously” considering running for the 2024 presidential election.
Speaking to Sean Hannity on Fox News, the president also said that he couldn’t discuss any plans to run in 2024 for legal reasons.
“I say this: I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously,” Trump said. “From a legal standpoint I don’t want to talk about it yet.”
And with the popularity he still clearly has among the American people, it makes sense that he would consider running again.
