Donald Trump arrived in New York City on Monday to spend Labor Day evening at Trump Tower – while his attorneys in the city continue to work on his numerous legal cases.
The 77-year-old was previously at his Bedminster golf club in New Jersey, where he greeted around 70 members of the Bikers for Trump group.
Trump spent the traditional last day of summer with his loyal fans, praising them on social media and thanking them for their support.
“A very large group of ‘Bikers for Trump’ have just left Bedminster,” he wrote on Truth Social.

“What a great time we all had. The bikes were AWESOME, the love and enthusiasm just overwhelming. Thank you all. We must WIN in 2024. MAGA!’
Hours later he was in Manhattan, looking a lot slimmer in his suit than he had been a few months ago.
When he was sent to Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia, Trump reported his height as 6’1″ and weight as 215 pounds — the same height and weight as Muhammad Ali in his prime.
The reported weight in prison means Trump has lost nearly 30 pounds since his last official White House inquest, which was released in June 2020.
The New York-born businessman, who has been charged with 91 felonies and is running for re-election in 2024, is certainly under a lot of stress.
Last week there were significant developments in his two New York City cases, criminal and civil, and Trump may have been in Manhattan to speak with his legal team.
In the criminal case involving hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels, it was revealed that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had been briefed on a possible scheduling conflict.
Bragg’s case, overseen by Judge Juan Merchan, had a March 24 start date set in May.
Last week, on August 28, Bragg was informed that the federal trial for election interference would begin on March 4.

Judges and prosecutors discuss potential scheduling conflicts among themselves and agree on the order of further action.
Bragg has said in the past that while his office was the first of four jurisdictions to bring charges against Trump, he wouldn’t mind if other cases were tried first.
Trump’s legal team in the Manhattan case had until August 29 to submit motions.
Prosecutors have until October 10 to respond.
In the civil fraud case at the Trump Organization, New York Attorney General Letitia James last week asked the judge for partial summary judgment in her $250 million case.
Wanting to avoid a trial, James claimed there was “mountain of undisputed evidence” of false and misleading financial reports.
The New York trip marks a rare return for the former president to the city where he was born and spent most of his adult life.
Trump was last seen at Trump Tower on May 31.
His wife Melania was there in June but is now believed to be in Florida where their 17-year-old son Barron is back at school in West Palm Beach.
The couple now resides primarily in Florida, with New Jersey during the summers.
