Former President Trump has left New York after pleading not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in connection with concealing hush money payments.
Trump entered the plea before Judge Juan Merchan during the proceeding Tuesday afternoon in Lower Manhattan, becoming the first former president to be arraigned on criminal charges.
Merchan did not impose a gag order on the former president and set the next court date for Dec. 4.
Trump now is on his way back to Florida, where he is slated to make remarks at Mar-a-Lago at 8:15 p.m.
