Former President Donald Trump got another hero-like welcome during a campaign stop in Manhattan Thursday evening after he was forced again to sit through a day’s worth of testimony in his hush money trial.

Trump was greeted with cheers when he delivered pizzas to a Manhattan firehouse, the New York Post reported. He arrived at FDNY’s Engine Co. 8, Ladder Co. 2 in Midtown with two Xeno’s Pizza boxes in hand at around 5:30 p.m. His campaign dropped off another 10 boxes to the hungry first responders. “You gotta win!” one firefighter told Trump as he met with the battalion. “Sir, save us please,” said another.

The presumptive Republican nominee for president spent 10 minutes chatting with firefighters, taking photos, signing a daybook, and other items during a campaign stop. “I love you all – special people,” Trump wrote in the daybook, above his signature, The Post reported, adding that the pizza was all gone long before the outlet’s reporter caught up to the former president.

“It was good, we enjoyed it,” a firefighter told The Post. “It’s always special when a president shows up at your place of work. He’s a nice guy for coming by,” he added, further describing Trump as “very personable.” He added of Trump, “He speaks to you, not at you.” What about President Biden? The firefighter responded: “He tries.”

FDNY spokesperson Jim Long told The Post that was Trump’s second visit to the same firehouse. “He was here in 2021 on Sept. 11,” Long said. “There might be some nervousness out there with Trump coming to the firehouse but we’ve had several presidents, many electeds, people running for office all come by and visit,” he added.
