“Evil Monsters”

Donald Trump’s response was swift. She became bitter. He appeared in a public meeting Saturday evening for the first time since the FBI raided his home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, on August 8.

Dozens of boxes of classified documents that Trump took with him when he left the White House were to be turned over to the National Archives. “Save America!” His disdain for the FBI inevitably came out during the meeting on the subject.

Greeted to a soundtrack of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA,” Donald Trump called the Justice Department and the FBI “evil monsters,” spoke of a “raid” and insisted they “invaded the home of his main political enemy.” ”.
