This is where internet trolls once again got busy, not missing the opportunity to make fun of the former US president’s lies, his signature hairstyle and artificial tan. It can also be seen in memes how Trump’s political rivals are enjoying it.
D. Trump himself announced the searches on his social network “Truth Social”.
“These are dark times for our country. “My beautiful Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege and surrounded by multiple FBI agents,” Trump said in a statement.
He spoke of “illegal actions by prosecutors” and “radical left-wing Democrats” who, he said, do not want him to run for president of the United States again. The FBI refused to confirm whether the search was actually taking place and for what reasons, and D. Trump did not provide details. But several U.S. media outlets cited sources close to the investigation who said agents were investigating the possible mishandling of classified documents that were sent to Mar-a-Lago.
The U.S. National Archives reported back in February that 15 boxes of documents containing classified texts that the former president took out of Washington after he lost the election were discovered at Trump’s Florida home. The incident has led to questions over Trump’s compliance with presidential documents laws enacted after the Watergate scandal in the 1970s.
The National Archives then asked the Justice Department to open an investigation into Trump’s actions.
