Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Donald Trump says FBI agents search Mar-a-Lago” – below is their description.
A “large group” of federal agents has entered Donald Trump’s Florida residence in an “unannounced raid”, the former US president said on his social media channel on Monday.
Officials from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) entered the property in a move that “was not necessary or appropriate”, Trump wrote in a statement.
The circumstances surrounding the raid were not clear.
Trump was not at Mar a Lago when the officers arrived. He was seen leaving Trump Tower in New York City on Monday, where he also has a home.
The search, which the FBI and Justice Department did not immediately confirm, marks a dramatic escalation in a months-long investigation into how classified documents ended up in more than a dozen boxes located at Mar-a-Lago earlier this year.
