Trump took pictures with the Joe Biden parody as Mar-a-Lago burst into life on Halloween night

Donald and Melania Trump were seen together in public for the first time in five months, attending a Halloween party at their Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, while their sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, prepare to take the stand in a New York City fraud trial.

The couple made a grand entrance to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” with Donald Trump opting for a suit and red tie, and Melania wearing a black dress paired with a neck choker and stilettos. The former president gave a thumbs up to the cheering crowd, while Melania waved at the resort’s guests. Trump was seen pointing to an attendee and declaring, “There you go!”

The couple’s appearance was notable as Melania has been absent from several landmark moments in Trump’s life recently, including all of his indictments this year. They were last seen together at Easter when they had lunch at the Palm Beach club.

Trump took center stage at the dinner, seemingly at ease despite his mounting legal troubles

The Halloween party at Mar-a-Lago was in full swing, with guests dressed in festive costumes, including some dressed as Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Donald Trump took on DJ duties, choosing songs from a Spotify playlist as guests danced around him.

The appearance of the couple comes as their sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, are set to testify in a Manhattan courtroom over their father’s business dealings. Both sons took over the day-to-day handling of the Trump organization when their father was elected president, offering an intimate knowledge of the company’s inner workings.

Prosecutors allege that Trump artificially inflated his wealth by billions of dollars throughout his career to secure better deals on loans. This trial is one of several legal battles that Trump is currently facing, including allegations of making hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and mishandling classified government documents.

Despite the legal troubles, the couple appeared relaxed as they mingled with guests at the Halloween party. However, their legal battles have the potential to endanger the future of their family enterprise. The state is expected to rest their case on November 8, after which Trump’s legal team will have the opportunity to mount a challenge and call their own witnesses.
