Donald Trump, the 45th US President, has claimed that FBI agents violated his constitutional rights and wreaked havoc in his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. The agency searched Trump’s premises in early August in connection with a probe into the former president’s handling of classified documents.
Taking to Truth Social on Sunday, the Republican firebrand said that he would “soon be heading” to Mar-a-Lago to check on the “unnecessary ransacking of rooms and other areas of the house.”
According to a post published on the social media platform, which was launched by Trump in February, the former head of state felt “totally violated” by the law enforcement’s intrusion.
In a string of consecutive messages, Trump accused the agents of violating his Fourth Amendment rights, adding that his estate would “never be the same” after their visit.
“It was ‘ransacked’, and in far different condition than the way I left it,” he lamented.
He also mentioned that the agents who searched his residence “didn’t even take off their shoes in my bedroom.”
