Former president Donald Trump made a less-than-triumphant return to New York City.

The twice-impeached one-term president arrived at Trump Tower just before 9 p.m. Sunday in a black SUV, and a lone supporter was across the street with some members of the media, reported the New York Post.

The New York City police department last month began removing some of the barriers set up in front of the building that had been set up when Trump was inaugurated.

It's not clear why Trump returned to his former residence and flagship real estate property.

The Queens native and lifelong New Yorker switched his residency to his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida, and he faces investigations of his business affairs by the Manhattan district attorney and New York state attorney general.
