According to a report, Donald Trump was initially "upbeat" about the FBI raid of his Mar-a-Lago residence, but his mood at times turned dark.

According to The Washington Post, sources said that Trump believed the FBI raid would benefit him.

One of the former president's friends told The Post that he felt it was a coup for him.

According to the report, Trump believed that the raid would cause Republicans to rally around him and that it would create more support for a possible presidential bid in 2024.

When it was revealed that the FBI had seized 11 sets of classified documents from Mar-a-Lago, the public's support for the raid waned. According to the Washington Post, the bureau searched for classified documents.

Some of Trump's allies are starting to distance themselves from him, according to reports.

If Trump kept information about nuclear weapons, it would be a big deal.

According to CBS reporter Scott MacFarlane, the Freedom Caucus canceled a press conference on Friday about the Mar-a-Lago raid.

According to people who had been around him, Trump's optimism has waned after this shift in support.

Many of Trump's most loyal allies have supported him despite this.

Users of Trump's Truth Social platform called for civil war and advocated for violence against the FBI, NBC reported.

The FBI office in Phoenix, Arizona, was the site of a protest on Saturday.

The Espionage Act is one of the laws that the Department of Justice is investigating if Trump broke.

The defense of the records found at Mar-a-Lago has changed. He claimed that documents he took were automatically declassified, that evidence was planted, and that Barack Obama did the same thing.
