Former President Donald Trump issued a scathing rebuke of the “political hacks and thugs” behind the Mar-a-Lago raid Friday; saying the US is now a “failing nation” under the leadership of Joe Biden and the Democratic Party.

“The political Hacks and Thugs had no right under the Presidential Records Act to storm Mar-a-Lago and steal everything in sight, including Passports and privileged documents. They even broke into my safe with a safecracker – Can you believe? This Act was created for a very good reason, and it works. We are right now living in a Lawless Country, that just so happens to be, also, a Failing Nation!” posted Trump on his ‘Truth Social’ media platform.

“Keep loving our Country – It will come back into your hearts stronger than ever before!!!” he added.
