Former President Donald Trump returned to his Mar-a-Lago residence over the weekend and says he finally got a chance to have a “long and detailed” check of the premises after the FBI’s raid.
Trump shared his reaction on TRUTH Social.
“Arrived in Florida last night and had a long and detailed chance to check out the scene of yet another government “crime,” the FBI’s Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago. I guess they don’t think there is a Fourth Amendment anymore, and to them, there isn’t. In any event, after what they have done, the place will never be the same. It was “ransacked,” and in far different condition than the way I left it. Many Agents – And they didn’t even take off their shoes in my bedroom. Nice!!!”
From Business Insider:
This is not the first time Trump has expressed anger at the FBI agents who searched through his personal items. In August, Trump accused investigators of leaving former first lady Melania Trump’s closet in a “mess” after the search. He also claimed the investigators searched his son Barron’s room.
Earlier this month, Trump claimed the FBI made him look sloppy by purposely scattering documents on the ground to photograph them during Mar-a-Lago raid. This was after the Department of Justiceshared a photo that showed classified documents strewn about on a carpet.
“They took them out of cartons and spread them around on the carpet, making it look like a big ‘find’ for them,” he wrote on Truth Social. “They dropped them, not me — Very deceiving…” he added.
