The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is conducting a search of former US president Donald Trump and his Mar-a-Lago estate. The 45th US president released a lengthy statement on Monday, where he declared his Florida home was under siege.

"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," Trump said in a statement.

Last week, Trump had returned to Washington for the first time since leaving office. "It was a catastrophe that election. A disgrace to our country," he said, insisting despite all evidence that he had won in 2020. We may just have to do it again, he said, repeating as he does in all recent appearances the ever-clearer hints that he will run again in 2024.

Trump's appearance in the nation's capital  his first trip back since January 20, 2021, when President Joe Biden was sworn into office.

Trump, 76, alleged that such an assault could only take place in broken, third-world countries. "Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before," he said. Demanding that the lawlessness, political persecution and witch-hunt must be exposed and stopped.

"It is political targeting at the highest level," he said. "I will continue to fight for the Great American People," he added.
