Freedom-loving Americans were left reeling as they watched an FBI raid take place at Mar-a-Lago, the home of former President Donald Trump, on Monday night.
If his enemies thought he was defeated, they were wrong. Just hours later, Trump unleashed perhaps his most urgent and dramatic message yet in a video.
Liberal media immediately dubbed it a “campaign ad for a run he hasn’t announced yet.” It seems to be a bit more than that.
The video, which starts out with a black screen, Trump’s name, and below that the phrase, “America is in decline,” first appeared on Trump’s social media platform, Truth Social, just after midnight early Tuesday morning. It posted again later on Tuesday morning around 10:30.
The video then lists all of the failures of the Biden administration, including Afghanistan, energy dependence on foreign nations, and the war in Ukraine. Trump also talks about freedom of speech, or a lack of it, while a screen shot of his cancelled social media account appears.
Trump does reference the Mar-a-Lago raid saying, “we are a nation that has weaponized its law enforcement against the opposing political party like never before.” It is here that the video turns in a more positive direction, and goes from a dark, gloomy black and white to more optimistic color images.
Trump also quotes familiar lines from rally speeches. “There is no summit we cannot reach. There is no victory we cannot have. It is time to start talking about greatness for our country again.”
It’s a bit unlike other videos we’ve seen from the 45th President.
Take a look, and watch until the epic conclusion at the end:
While the FBI maintains that the raid occurred in relation to the handling of classified documents they believe might be inside the former president’s home, Trump himself, many prominent Republicans and conservative commentators, and everyday Trump supporters believe the raid is nothing short of political persecution.
Crowds of Trump supporters gathered outside of Mar-A-Lago Monday night. The consensus among them was that there was an effort being made to charge Trump with something in order to prevent him from running in 2024.
Nothing may speak to the absolute fear and terror felt by the left at the thought of a second Trump term in the White House like an early morning raid by the FBI.
In a statement from Trump, he said, “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. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
With the midterm election roughly 90 days away, Democrats and the left are in a panic. By most accounts, election night will be a bloodbath for them. Joe Biden’s poll numbers, even among Democrats, continue to plummet, 75% of Democrats don’t want him to run in 2024, and there is no one yet on the Democrat bench that could replace Joe Biden as the nominee who is seen as a winning candidate.
Democrats are in a pickle, and they know it.
Donald Trump recently stated that he has, in fact, made a decision about 2024, but has not decided when to make any announcement either way. At the recent CPAC conference in Dallas, Trump carried the presidential straw poll with 59% of the vote. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was second with 24%.
Reaction to Monday night’s raid from Republican and conservative members of Congress, political commentators, and media was swift.
