Former President Donald Trump recently enjoyed pizza.
He held an impromptu pizza party with his supporters Friday after a campaign speech. He made a surprise visit to Downtown House of Pizza in Fort Myers, Florida, on Friday after speaking at the Lee County Republican Party’s Lincoln Reagan Dinner.

Trump was joined by Florida Rep. Byron Donalds, who endorsed Trump earlier this month.

Trump recently turned the Republican presidential primary on its head within four months, turning a 14-point deficit to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis into a 13-point lead, in a new Wall Street Journal poll released Friday. Trump, who launched his third straight White House campaign in November, has seen his status as the GOP front-runner solidify in recent polling, especially after Republicans rallied around him as he became the first former president in American history to be indicted.
Trump now leads DeSantis 51% to 38% among likely GOP voters, according to the Wall Street Journal poll. DeSantis has not officially announced his intention to run for president in 2024, but he is expected to launch a campaign sometime after the end of Florida’s legislative session, which concludes next month.
Trump recently stated that he expected to be arrested in connection with the investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney soon. He went on to call for protests as New York law enforcement prepares for a possible indictment. A photo of Donald Trump’s plane taking off to fly to New York for his arrest was also leaked.
The controversy sparked around the hush money payment that Cohen admitted that he made to Stormy Daniels during the fall of Trump’s 2016 White House bid to keep her from coming forward about an alleged affair she had with the then-candidate. Trump has denied the affair. Previously, TMZ reported that Daniels was experiencing the impact of Trump’s potential impending arrest and reportedly strengthening her security after receiving multiple threats.
