ANKARA (AA) – Former US President Donald Trump said Monday that his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida was being raided by the FBI, decrying the unprecedented “assault.”

“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 said in a statement on his Save America platform.

Trump slammed the unannounced visit, saying “such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World countries.”

He went on to say that the US has now become one of those countries, “corrupt at a level not seen before.”

“They even broke into my safe!” the former president claimed, lamenting that “nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”

Trump accused his opponents of prosecutorial misconduct and weaponizing the justice system.

Natasha Bertrand, a CNN reporter, said on Twitter that the search appeared to be focused on material that Trump “had brought with him to Mar-a-Lago,” citing two people allegedly familiar with the investigation.
