Trump Supporters Gather Near Mar-a-Lago Amid FBI Raid

Share

Supporters of former President Donald Trump rallied outside of Mar-a-Lago amid an FBI raid.

On Monday, the FBI searched Trump’s resort as part of an investigation into how he handled presidential documents.

NBC6 reporter Cristian Benavides posted videos of protesters gathering outside of the location.

One person could be heard saying, “F**k Trump.”

Another replied, “F** you!”

Benavides reported in another tweet that one group of Trump supporters was “located near Mar-A-Lago about a half mile away at the entrance of the bridge into Palm Beach.”

He added, “There are multiple vehicles with Trump flags driving back and forth between this group and Mar-A-Lago.”

Do you think the raid was necessary or appropriate?

Fox News spoke to several of the protesters.

J.D. Kennon told the network, “As soon as I saw it, I drove here from Tampa. This is nuts.”

He added, “We all know what you’re trying to do, DOJ. You’re trying to create some kind of charge, so he’s not going to be able to run for re-election.”

Trump supporter Mike Baffumo argued, “They’re going to do anything they can to get him. They’re terrified of him.”

He continued, “And it’s not because of any other reason than the policies that he supports: America First policies.”

The former president issued a statement on the raid.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump said.

The statement continues, “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

The New York Times noted that Trump delayed returning 15 boxes of material requested by National Archives officials for several months.

Trump reportedly only returned the material when there was a threat of action.

Earlier this year, the archives handed the case over to the Department of Justice, as the Times reported.
