Former president Donald Trump has promised Americans that he will do whatever he can “to help the country,” after the FBI’s raid of his Mar-a-Lago home last week. He had told the media that he firmly believes that “the temperature has to be brought down,” while stressing that the American people are “not going to stand for another scam.”
In his first exclusive interview since the raid, Trump told the media on Monday that he has reached out to the Department of Justice through his representatives. This was in an attempt to offer his help despite the chaos caused by the FBI’s unprecedented raid on his private residence last week. The agents had seized classified records, including some marked as top secret, which Trump has denied as he said he had declassified them.
In reflecting on the “years of fake witch hunts and phony Russia, Russia, Russia schemes and scams,” Trump said, “nothing happens to those people who perpetuate that—nothing happens with them. And then they break into a president’s house— a sneak attack where it was totally—no one ever thought a thing like this would happen.”
According to the property receipt, FBI agents took approximately 20 boxes of various items from the premises, including one set of documents marked as “Various classified/TS/SCI documents,” which refers to top secret/sensitive compartmented information.
When talking about the raid, he said the FBI just broke in and took whatever they wanted. The FBI had also told his team on the Mar-a-Lago premises to “turn off the camera,” and said, “no one can go through the rooms.” Trump added that every other person was asked to wait outside the premises, which must have given the FBI the privacy needed to take or plant whatever was beneficial to them.
The former president told the media, “The country is in a very dangerous position. There is tremendous anger, like I’ve never seen before, over all of the scams, and this new one—years of scams and witch hunts, and now this. If there is anything we can do to help, I, and my people, would certainly be willing to do that.”

Trump added, “There has never been a time like this where law enforcement has been used to break into the house of a former president of the United States, and there is tremendous anger in the country—at a level that has never been seen before, other than during very perilous times.”

Trump had, however, not heard back from the Department of Justice and still does not know if they might be ready to receive his help or not. He said he believes they would also want the same thing as no American alive has ever seen the country in this state. In his honor, he promised that he and his entire team would do whatever they could to help the country become the great and untouchable nation it once was before it met Biden.
