A YouTube video showing former President Donald Trump arriving unannounced at Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., caused considerable Internet speculation.
Liberals were hoping for a warm, fuzzy feeling similar to what Republicans felt when they saw the bewildered look on Hillary Clinton’s face after Trump beat her in 2016. A social media update by the former president soon dashed Democratic hopes, though.
The Conservative Brief further reported:
Early Saturday, YouTuber Andrew Leydon shared a video that he captured of the former president arriving in the nation’s capital.
Most of the speculation online concerned the ongoing federal investigation into the former president following last month’s unprecedented raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate — specifically, that he came to Washington to turn himself into federal authorities.
“Here’s Donald Trump arriving unannounced tonight at Dulles outside DC. Nobody knows why. He’s in what appear to be white golf shoes and a golf shirt. Gets into a blacked-out SUV. Very, very interesting,” news anchor Ed Greenberger noted in a tweet containing the video.
“Something weird is going on. No one – and I mean no one – knows why Donald has arrived in DC tonight, looking disheveled in golf clothes. It could be something totally inconsequential, but something tells me it’s not,” another verified Twitter user said.
“Someone just posited he found out FBI was going to search his DC club and flew over to be there? Who knows,” they said.
“I’d settle for a negotiated self-surrender to be arraigned. Probably too much to hope for,” tweeted NBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner.
“Trump is in DC for: – Jared’s speech tomorrow – medical emergency – appearing before a grand jury – surrendering for arrest – retrieving or hiding TS docs at his MD and/or VA properties – obstruct justice by meeting w/someone appearing before a grand jury to bribe/threaten them,” Cheri Jacobus wrote.
But Trump cleared up the mystery himself on his Truth Social platform.
“Working today at @TrumpWashingtonDC on the Potomac River. What an incredible place! trumpnationaldc.com,” he wrote.
