Former US President Donald Trump arrived in Miami on Monday, a day before he appears in court to face federal criminal charges.
Trump is scheduled to be in a Miami federal courthouse on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. EDT for an initial appearance in the case involving classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
The former President touched down in Miami at 2:54 p.m. local time in a private jet with his name emblazoned on the side, according to Reuters.
Supporters gathered outside a nearby golf club he owns, where he was due to stay the night.
"I HOPE THE ENTIRE COUNTRY IS WATCHING WHAT THE RADICAL LEFT ARE DOING TO AMERICA," he wrote on his Truth Social social-media platform before departing from New Jersey.
The federal indictment against Trump in the classified documents case was unsealed on Friday. According to the indictment, Trump faces 37 counts in the case, including 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information, according to the indictment.
Special counsel Jack Smith, whom Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed to oversee the investigation after Trump declared his candidacy for president in 2024, emphasized the seriousness of the charges facing Trump on Friday shortly after the indictment was unsealed.
On Saturday, Trump denounced the indictment against him in a speech in Georgia, calling it "ridiculous and baseless."
