Trump: Pamela Karlan apologises for referencing Barron in 2019
Donald Trump will address last year’s riots at the Capitol at a rally in Arizona today. The former President had been scheduled to hold a press conference on January 6, the anniversary of the attack, but it was cancelled at the last-minute. Two Senators had advised Mr Trump that the press conference was “not a good idea”, with many other Senate Republicans largely preferring to ignore him.
The press conference was due to be held at his Mar-a-Lago resort, but he will now discuss “many of those important topics” at today’s rally.
Mar-a-Lago in Florida’s Palm Beach is just one of a handful of impressive estates that he owns.
It is filled with a range of impressive amenities including an oceanfront swimming pool and sports courts for millionaire club members to enjoy.
Once dubbed his ‘Winter White House’, Mr Trump relocated there with his third wife Melania and their only child together, Barron, after vacating the White House, instead of returning to ‘Trump Towers’ in New York.

Barron, who turns 16 in March, attends the nearby Oxbridge Academy, a $34,800-a-year (£25,527) private academy in Palm Beach.
It was founded by American billionaire businessman William I Koch in 2011.
The school’s website says it aims to inspire students in grades 7-12, the equivalent of Year 8 to Year 13 in the UK, by “offering a different approach to secondary education”.
It adds: “With access to state-of-the-art technology, a 54-acre campus, and passionate educators, our students, approximately 500, are prepared to meet the world boldly with initiative and kindness.

“Oxbridge Academy fosters the development of young adults into learners, thinkers, and problem solvers.”
The school encourages sporting participation, with at least 16 sports on offer including athletics, basketball, football and swimming.
A range of student-led clubs are also offered. These include a Cancer Awareness Club, through which students can volunteer and participate in events with local cancer societies, and the Mental Health Awareness Club which aims to ensure no student is alone in their internal struggles.
Standing at 6ft7in as of last year, Barron is believed to be a “smart” promising footballer — or soccer player, as said in the US — and was previously spotted wearing an Arsenal shirt on the front lawn of the White House.
