Trump reveals why he’s in DC area amid impeachment rumors – Dems will be disappointed
Speculation ran rampant when former President Donald Trump made one unannounced appearance in the Washington area on Sunday. He had only visited DC once since leaving office.
Thanks to a social media post from the former president, we now know exactly why he came near the country’s capital.
Freelance journalist and YouTuber Andrew Leyden, known as PenguinSix, broke the news on Sunday night before it was picked up by numerous other reporters and outlets. Leyden even captured footage of Trump stepping off his plane upon arrival at Dulles International Airport in Virginia.
Much of the speculation centered on the notion that Trump was visiting Washington for legal reasons, given the long runtime Investigation of Congress into January 6, 2021, Capitol Incursion and the FBI raid of August 8th at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Country Club home in Palm Beach, Florida.

Despite all that, it turned out Trump had only been visiting the area to play golf.
“I work at @TrumpWashingtonDC on the Potomac River today. What an incredible place!” he wrote in a post on his truth social platform Monday.
In fact, the former President owns an award-winning golf course, Den Trump National Golf Club Washington DCin Potomac Falls, Virginia.

There was one clue in Leyden’s footage of Trump exiting his plane: he was seen in golf shoes.
The man who first got video of Trump’s plane landing says the last he saw of Trump’s motorcade was on his way to Trump’s golf course. And he appeared to be wearing golf shoes in the video (see three minutes in),” journalist Seth Abramson wrote on Twitter.

However, anti-Trump activist Dash Dobrofsky speculated that this could be a sign that Trump was hastily and reluctantly brought to DC.
“Here is video of insurgent Trump wearing golf shoes on his secret trip to DC. There is no official way to determine why he is there. But the shoes tell a story that this was a rushed, unexpected journey that he didn’t want to make,” Dobrofsky said on Twitter.

Trump’s contribution has certainly curbed some erroneous speculation.
The Washington Post’s George Conway had hinted that the former president would be charged with some sort of criminal case.
“It charged — I mean, it rained,” Conway wrote Sunday.

Mike Sington, a former executive at NBC Universal, suggested two possible reasons for Trump’s arrival: first, he was seeking medical treatment, or second, the former president had been impeached and “turned himself in.”
Trump flew unscheduled from Bedminster to DC last night. He hasn’t posted about why he’s in Washington, and neither has his family. The speculation is:
1. He seeks treatment from Walter Reed for an unknown illness.
2. He was charged and turns himself in.
