Supporters of Donald Trump showed up at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Sunday to support the former president after his Mar-a-Lago estate was searched by the FBI.

Photojournalist Karla Coté shared scenes from the rally on Twitter.

Video clips showed a party-like atmosphere, with most of the demonstrators holding signs and flags.

"May Pres. Trump, family, be surrounded by the full armor of God," one sign read. "May no weapon formed against them prosper, but boomerang against the offenders. In Jesus name. Amen."

Other signs hinted at pedophilia conspiracy theories that have been promoted by QAnon.

As Cote filmed, one man chanted for the return of the Aunt Jemima character for branding syrup.

"Bring back Aunt Jemima! Bring back Aunt Jemima!" he shouted.
