The opponents of President Donald J. Trump have done nearly everything imaginable to alienate Trump from his supporters, including major shame campaigns, scams, and ‘denunciation rallies’ in the style of Maoists shown on cable television. Yet, many of his fans refuse to be dissuaded from publicly supporting his America First program.
Many people perceive the demands and pressures to abandon supporting Trump as war tactics, and for good cause. Steve Bannon, former White House strategist and host of the program War Room, declared in his Friday keynote address at the CPAC Cattleman’s Ball that “we are at war” between America’s elite and the common citizen.
Never Trump supporters have used intimidation, violence, and lawfare to discourage people from supporting Trump and to prevent Trump from being Trump. And nothing has worked up to this point.
So, the Never Trumpers downshifted, stepped on the pedal, and performed the unthinkable.
America discovered on Monday evening that the Democratic administration of President Joe Biden had conducted a huge raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. It scoured the area in search of 15 boxes of documents that the left has been referring to as “classified materials” since the day of the inauguration, when they observed the boxes being placed outside the White House residence in preparation for relocation.
According to various major media accounts, the raid was conducted because Trump allegedly transported confidential White House information to Mar-a-Lago.
Attorney Alan Dershowitz remarked that the raid appeared to be “misconduct” on the part of the FBI, since evening news networks were replete with talking heads stating that the raid did not appear to be appropriate.
“The raid is supposed to be a last resort. But this administration has used the weaponization of the justice system against its political enemies,” Dershowitz remarked. “This is improper, and this is misconduct.”
Kash Patel, a former high-ranking Trump administration official, stated in a May interview with Breitbart News’ Kristina Wong that the documents were “already declassified by then-President Donald Trump, but the classification markings had not been updated.”
Trump and his son Eric were reportedly at Trump Tower in New York City at the time of the raid.
The Daily Mail stated, “Horde of angry Trump supporters descends on Mar-a-Lago in the hours following shock FBI raid of ex-president’s Florida club: MAGA crowd questions agency’s motives and blasts double-standard in reporting on Hunter Biden and Nancy Pelosi.”
“Supporters arrived in their cars and camped out outside former President Trump’s home. Others held pro-Trump signs, including ones for a 2024 campaign, outside the Mar-a-Lago estate
They arrived shortly after it emerged that the FBI was searching the former president’s home to investigate whether he took classified documents from the White House to his Florida residence.”
Trump stated in a statement, ‘These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.’
He claimed that the FBI has a double standard and ‘enabled’ Hillary Clinton to ‘acid wash’ 33,000 emails.
