The opponents of President Donald J. Trump have tried almost everything they can think of to separate Trump from his supporters, including massive shame campaigns, hoaxes, and Maoists style ‘denunciation rallies’ all over cable TV. Yet, many of those supporters refuse to be shamed away from outwardly rallying for him and his America First agenda.
The demands and pressures to stop supporting Trump feel like war tactics to many people, for a good reason. “We are at war,” Steve Bannon, former White House strategist and host of the War Room program, said in his Friday keynote speech at the CPAC Cattleman’s Ball about America’s elite versus the average American.
Never Trumpers have tried intimidation, violence, and cancel culture with lawfare to force people to stop supporting Trump and stop Trump from – being Trump. And nothing has not worked so far.
So the Never Trumpers slipped a gear, put their foot down on the gas, and did the unthinkable.
On Monday evening America learned that the Democrat administration of President Joe Biden had performed a massive raid on Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago. It ransacked the place looking for 15 boxes of documents that the left has been talking about being ‘classified materials’ since inauguration day when they saw the boxes being stacked outside of the White House residence to be moved.
According to multiple mainstream media reports, the reason for the raid was that Trump allegedly brought classified information from the White House to Mar-a-Lago.
Attorney Alan Dershowitz noted that the raid seemed to be “misconduct” by the FBI, as evening news shows were full of talking heads saying this raid did not seem right.
“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 said. “This is improper, and this is misconduct.”
Kash Patel, a former top Trump administration official, said in an interview with Breitbart News’s Kristina Wong in May that the documents were “already declassified by then-President Donald Trump, but the classification markings had not been updated.”
When the raid occurred, Trump was reportedly at Trump Tower in New York City with his son Eric.
“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,” The Daily Mail reported.
“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.”
‘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,’ Trump said in a statement
He accused the FBI of a double standard and said the bureau ‘allowed’ Hillary Clinton to ‘acid wash’ 33,000 emails.
Trump’s family members and supporters say the raid was an attempt to thwart a potential 2024 campaign.
Breitbart reported on the Trump supporter’s post-raid activity near the Mar-a Lago site with the following footage:
“Footage of the crowds arriving has been circulating on social media, showing supporters waving flags and honking horns in support of the 45th president, “Ethan Letkeman reported for the outlet.
“BREAKING: Crowds of Trump supporters have begun arriving to Mar-a-Lago,” Jack Posobiec, editor of Human Events posted.

“The scene outside Mar-A-Lago where a search warrant was conducted earlier today, Trump supporters have gathered in front of Mar-A-Lago as well,” NBC Correspondent wrote. “This group of Trump supporters is located near Mar-A-Lago about a half mile away at the entrance of the bridge into Palm Beach.
Multiple vehicles with Trump flags drive back and forth between this group and Mar-A-Lago.”

Reports show local law enforcement – not the secret service that generally guards the property – are telling the gathering supporters to leave. However, one Twitter user claimed that Trump’s supporters were still pouring in to show support for the former president despite police requests.
“BREAKING: RAV on the ground in Mar-a-Lago with @RealDrGina on the @lfs6b show. “Local police trying to get Trump supporters to leave,” Real America’s Voice reported.

“The scenes of Trump die-hards arriving to show support for the former president are reminiscent of when hundreds of people gathered outside of Walter Reed hospital in October 2020 to show support for the then-president, who was admitted after he tested positive for the coronavirus,” Breitbart reported.
“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,” Trump stated. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
