Donald Trump, former President of the United States, owns Mar A Lago. It is the second largest house in Florida and the 24th largest house in the entire country. The former president calls his home the “White Winter House.”
On Monday, August 8, 2022, FBI agents showed up at Trump’s property without notifying him. What happened in the big house?
What happened Monday night in Mar-a-Lago?
As part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified ones, the FBI investigated Mar A Lago. The search appears to be mostly about the things Trump took from the White House.
CNN says the unusual decision to search the home was made because Trump still has legal troubles on many fronts. The search involved the records the National Archives were looking for.
Representatives of the Ministry of Justice do not want to say anything about the search warrant that had been issued in Mar-a-Lago.
The US National Archives found classified documents at Mar-a-Lago in February 2022. They had told the US Department of Justice what had happened. Specifically, in the United States, it is against the law for someone in control of government documents to hide, remove, alter, or destroy them.
Trump says FBI broke into Mar-a-Lago and broke into his safe
The former president, who was staying at Trump Tower, confirmed agents were on his property. He even broke into his safe, he said.
Trump said in a statement, “My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is now under siege, raid, and occupation by a large group of federal agents.” So Trump has said the search was an “assault.” , which “was not necessary or right”.
In his message, the former president said the FBI’s action was backed by Democrats who “desperately” do not want him to run again in 2024.
Meanwhile, many people supporting Trump are showing up in Mar-a-Lago. After he says the FBI broke into his Florida home, they wave flags in front of the entrance.

Mar-A-Lago will be worth it in 2022
According to Forbes, Mar A Lago is currently worth $160 million.
In 1985, Trump bought it for about $10 million. The famous mansion is said to have earned the US President more than $100 million. It has earned 12x what it cost over the same period. But first, the billionaire had to spend a lot of money to make it work.
Forbes says Trump spent about $3 million on the home’s fancy furniture. Across the street you can buy 400 feet of premier beach for $2 million.
Even then, the property was a very nice place to live. During the Florida land boom of the 1920s, it was built as winter quarters for grain heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. Its name “Mar-a-Lago” means “from sea to lake” in Spanish. This is because the resort stretches across Palm Beach, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway.
