( – In a true testimony to his enormous popularity, Donald Trump was received with cheers and applause as he made an appearance at the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix ahead of the resumption of his so-called “hush money” trial in New York.

The former president faces legal challenges, having been indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in March 2023.

He is charged with 34 counts of allegedly falsifying business records connected to payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign. Daniels claims she and Trump had an affair in 2006, a charge Trump denies.

Facing a total of four criminal indictments, Trump has maintained his innocence and contends that the prosecution is politically motivated. The trial was set to continue at 9:30 a.m. on Monday in Manhattan.

During the event, videos circulated on X showing fans at the race’s paddock enthusiastically supporting Trump as he acknowledged them with waves and fist pumps.

Another clip displayed Florida law enforcement officers welcoming Trump’s motorcade at Miami International Autodrome.

This temporary circuit surrounds Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Before the race, Trump was seen interacting with McLaren Racing’s CEO Zak Brown in their garage.

Later, McLaren’s Lando Norris, whose team Trump had visited, secured his inaugural F1 victory at the Miami Grand Prix.

Additional footage from X captured Trump receiving chants of “USA” from the crowd in the garage area.

A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll indicates that 80 percent of Trump’s supporters would continue to support him even if he were convicted in the hush money case, while 20 percent might reconsider or withdraw their support.

The subgroup polled included 937 Trump supporters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. The national poll involved 2,260 adults and had a 2 percentage point margin of error.

Trump’s visit was marked by the presence of notable figures including Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile President Mohammed Ben Sulayem, Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali, and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei.

In light of the attention garnered, McLaren issued a statement to clarify their non-political stance, emphasizing respect for the presidential office.

“McLaren is a non-political organisation however we recognise and respect the office of President of the United States so when the request was made to visit our garage on race day we accepted,” the company said.
