Trump sports MAGA cap playing golf for first time after presidency, Nancy Pelosi says 'Thank God he's gone'
'The president of the United States committed an act of incitement of insurrection,' Pelosi declared at her weekly press briefing. The House is slated to deliver the article of impeachment against Trump Monday
Former President Donald J. Trump spent his first day out of the White House golfing on his West Palm Beach club course. Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thanked the almighty that "he's gone" from Washington.
It's no news that Trump's favorite pastime is golf. He has often spent time on courses he owns in Florida, New Jersey, or some other Trump-brand club around the world.
Donning his signature red 'Make America Great Again' cap, the 45th POTUS was spotted putting at his golf course after being transported there via federal motorcade from his Mar-a-Lago club, where he reportedly plans to settle down.

"The president of the United States committed an act of incitement of insurrection," Pelosi declared at her weekly press briefing. "I don't think it's very unifying to say, oh, let's just forget it and move on. That's not how you unify."
"Just because he's now gone — thank God — you don't say to a president, 'Do whatever you want in the last months of your administration. You're going to get a get-out-of-jail card free' because people think you should make nice, nice, and forget that people died here on January 6," she continued.
Pelosi and the House are slated to deliver the article of impeachment against Trump on Monday, per the latest reports. The second impeachment trial against the ex-President -- based on an article for "incitement of insurrection" -- will commence once the document is sent to the upper chamber.
After delivering the article on Monday, lawmakers can set up a trial to start the following day itself. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are currently working toward a power-sharing agreement owing to a 50-50 split Senate. Referring to both senators, Pelosi told reporters that "they've informed us they're ready to receive" the article and that there were "other questions about how a trial will proceed." She added: "I'm not going to be telling you when it was going."
Democrats have blamed Trump for the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 as lawmakers worked to certify Electoral College results for Joe Biden. House Democrats were joined by ten Republican defectors in impeaching Trump for allegedly "inciting" the riot.
Trump departed from Washington early Wednesday morning, hours before Biden was inaugurated. He first flew to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland to speak at a brief farewell ceremony the same day. He later flew to Florida on Air Force One for one last time.
"We have the greatest country in the world, we have the greatest economy in the world, and as bad as the pandemic was we did something that is really considered a medical miracle," he told his supporters at JBA. "I just want to say you are amazing people. This is a great, great country. It is my greatest honor and privilege to have been your president."
"I will always fight for you. I will be watching. I will be listening and I will tell you that the future of this country has never been better," he added. "Have a good life, we will see you soon."
