Trump Predicts Raid Backlash Will Help GOP At Polls, Claims FBI Snatched His Passports

    Former President Donald Trump is claiming that the FBI actually seized his passports during the raid on his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida last week, going on to say the incident and the backlash it has created will ultimately help the GOP this November during the midterm elections.

    “Wow! In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three passports (one expired), along with everything else,” Trump said in a Truth Social statement published on Monday. “This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our country. Third world!”

    The post from Trump came about just minutes after he predicted the FBI raid of his home would end up giving the GOP even more of a boost in primary polls and would help them to retake both chambers of Congress this fall.

    “Republicans could win many additional seats, both in the House & Senate, because of the strong backlash over the raid at Mat-a-Lago,” Trump went on to write on Truth Social. “Polls are showing that some lost Republican territory over the last number of weeks has been more than made up with the unannounced break in by the FBI, which should never have happened!”

    The former president then said that he’s hearing “great simmering anger” from Americans who are furious over the politicization of DOJ and the FBI against potential opposition to the current president, according to a report from Newsmax.

    “Just left a large gathering of people and all they could talk about was the complete and total stranglehold that the Radical Left Democrats have over the DOJ & FBI,” the former president said in a post published Sunday on Truth Social. “It shouldn’t be that way.”

    “Nobody goes after BLM, ANTIFA, or the rest, despite murder, beatings, and burning down large sections of cities, a very unfair double standard. They definitely won’t attack the home of a former Democrat President, nor should they. It is all so out of control, great simmering anger!” he added.

    He continued, saying, “America has never suffered this kind of abuse in law enforcement! For the FBI to raid the home of the 45 president of the United States, or any president for that matter, is totally unheard of and unthinkable.”

    “This break in was a sneak attack on democracy (our republic!), and was both unannounced and done at a time when the president was not even present. It was for political, not legal reasons, and our entire country is angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed by it. Make America Great Again!” he concluded.

    At the end of the day, if Trump announced he was not running for office, you’d see the vast majority of the attacks against him begin to subside. He would not be as big of a threat to the Democratic Party and their agenda at that point.

    Though his influence in the GOP, as strong as it is, might keep him on the radar for a bit longer.
