President Donald Trump says he “will do whatever” he can “to help the country,” adding that the “temperature has to be brought down.”
This came about following the FBI’s raid of his Mar-a-Lago home. Trump went on to say America is “not going to stand for another scam.”
In Trump’s first interview following the raid, Trump said his representatives had contacted the Justice Department to offer assistance.
“The country is in a very dangerous position. There is tremendous anger like I’ve never seen before, over all of the scams, and this new one—years of scams and witch hunts, and now this,” Trump said.
Trump added, “If there is anything we can do to help, I, and my people, would certainly be willing to do that.”
“There has never been a time like this where law enforcement has been used to break into the house of a former president of the United States, and there is tremendous anger in the country—at a level that has never been seen before, other than during very perilous times,” Trump continued.
Trump has not heard anything back from the Justice Department in regards to his offer of assistance.
In reference to the Justice Department, Trump stated, “I think they would want the same thing—I’ve never seen anything like this. It is a very dangerous time for our country.”
He added again, “I will do whatever I can to help the country.”

Trump, reflecting on the “years of fake witch hunts and phony Russia, Russia, Russia schemes and scams,” said that “nothing happens to those people who perpetuate that—nothing happens with them.”
“And then they break into a president’s house— a sneak attack where it was totally—no one ever thought a thing like this would happen,” Trump said.
Trump told Fox News that FBI agents “break in and take whatever they want to take.”
Trump said FBI agents told his team on the Mar-a-Lago premises to “turn off the camera,” and said “no one can go through the rooms.”
“They could take anything they want, and put anything they want in,” Trump said of the FBI agents. “My people were asked to stand outside.”
Trump went on to suggest that the FBI “could have planted anything they wanted” during the raid.
“People are so angry at what is taking place,” Trump said. “Whatever we can do to help—because the temperature has to be brought down in the country. If it isn’t, terrible things are going to happen.”
