In a statement on Truth Social, Trump said, “Nothing like this has ever happened to a president of the United States before,”.

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

Adding that “It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024,”.

He says that “Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.”

“They ever broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”

In the statement, Trump lamented that this is part of another “political persecution” that “has been going on for years,” adding this alongside the “fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2,”.

In the statement, Trump discussed Hillary Clinton:

“Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.“

At the end of the statement, Trump wrote, “The
lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped.”

Adding that he “will continue to fight for the Great American People!”
