Donald Trump breaks silence after leaving White House and new life in Florida

Former President Donald Trump may return to the political scene, as he broke his silence following his last day in the White House.

He has started his new life as a Florida resident and has already hit the Golf course.

He told the Washington Examiner, "We'll do something, but not just yet," in a brief interaction at his regular table at the private Trump International Golf Club restaurant.

The encounter was cut short by an aide.

It was the businessman's first public comment since Joe Biden was sworn in.

Trump chose not to take part in the historic transfer of power on Wednesday, with him and Melania saying farewell early.

Instead he was seen playing a round on Thursday morning but didn't arrive until the early afternoon on Friday, and went straight to the dining hall, according to reports.

Trump arrived in the state on Wednesday, with an aide saying earlier in the week "he needs a break".

He has said previously he is considering another run for the White House in 2024.

His first public comment came minutes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will transmit an impeachment article to the Senate on Monday.

It means Trump's impeachment trial on 'incitement of insurrection' will formally begin the following day.

NBC announced yesterday, (Friday, January 22) the opening arguments will take place on February 8, after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer reached an agreement with Republicans.

Trump and his lawyers will have to begin to work on a defense.

More than 125 people have been arrested by federal authorities as they continue to investigate the US Capitol riots that took place on January 6.

It is the first time in US history that a president has been impeached twice.

"There will be a trial," Schumer said.

"It will be a full trial, it will be a fair trial. But make no mistake: There will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the insurrection against the United States."

Trump's public profile may need to be transformed, as he is still blocked from popular media outlets, including Twitter.

Groundskeepers on his course were seen planting new trees around the perimeter, with reports claiming it's to obstruct view from media outlets.

The new trees came one just after a CNN camerman shot footage of the former president on the course.

Even with Joe Biden now sworn in, Trump was spotted wearing a red 'MAGA' hat.
