Donald Trump‘s family and friends gathered at Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday night, hours after his indictment, to hear him proclaim that his only ‘crime‘ was ‘fearlessly defending our country’, and claim the United States was ‘going to hell’.
His sons Don Jr and Eric and daughter Tiffany were in the audience, with their partners.
Notably absent was his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, who worked with Trump in the White House.
His wife Melania was also not there, and neither was his son Barron, 17.

The Trumps were accompanied by a throng of their most fervent supporters – among them the My Pillow founder, Mike Lindell, and conservative political operative Roger Stone.
Kari Lake, who failed in November to be elected as governor of Arizona, was also at the gathering.
There was a festive atmosphere in the ballroom, with Trump’s supporters energized by Tuesday’s proceedings.
Trump’s legal team dismissed the indictment as ‘sad’, arguing that it amounted to nothing and would not have even been filed were it not for Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg’s wish to charge the former president.
