Trump hits his Palm Beach golf course after urging Manhattan DA to drop Stormy Daniels case
For two days, the New York grand jury has not sat to hear evidence against Donald Trump, leaving the nation wondering when and if the former president will eventually be indicted.
Trump knew exactly what to do on Thursday and kept the appearance of business as usual to shoot a round of golf at his West Palm Beach course.
His motorcade of SUVs was seen leaving his Mar-a-Lago home before making the 15-minute journey across the water to his club in West Palm Beach.
It was the second day in a row that he appeared on the course, where regulars say he normally plays every day from Wednesday to Sunday.
The lulls in the New York jury room have sparked speculation among Trump and his supporters that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has suffered a setback in his case.

Trump claimed on Thursday that there was “utter disarray” in his office and demanded that Bragg drop the case.
But in between issuing statements and posting on his Truth Social platform, he also shared a photo of the actor and supporter John Voight on the club’s executive range.
He was later seen in the afternoon in his signature red MAGA cap and white club polo shirt sharing some pointers with a pretty blonde in a short blue skirt.
Members Bob Curcio and James Tomasello formed the party.
Trump also mingled with guests in the club’s grill area.
“Isn’t it appalling that District Attorney Bragg is refusing to do the right thing and ‘call it a day?'” he posted on his Truth Social platform later in the day.
He would rather charge an innocent man and create years of hatred, chaos and unrest than give him his well-deserved ‘freedom’.
‘The whole country sees what’s going on, and they don’t put up with it anymore.
‘They’ve had enough! There was no mistake, no misdemeanor, no crime, and most importantly NO CASE. They spied on my campaign, rigged the election, falsely “accused, cheated and lied.” It’s HUMAN SLIPPING!’
The case made headlines last weekend when Trump posted a message that he would be arrested on Tuesday.
But Tuesday came and went without the former president leaving his home in Mar-a-Lago.

Then it turned out on Wednesday that the grand jury was not satisfied. And on Thursday, it heard no evidence in the case related to a $130,000 hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
Still, Trump’s bombing announcement of an arrest meant reporters and photographers have been watching the lower Manhattan courthouse all week.
And the former president has continued a steady stream of attacks on Bragg. T
“Total disorder in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office,” he posted earlier Thursday.
“Huge discord and chaos because they have NO CASE, and many of the honest people in the office know it and want to do the right thing.”
