The White House requested that Americans Remain Calm after the FBI conducted a search of former President Donald Trump’s residence this week.
“Americans should remain peaceful in this period,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said when asked about angry Trump supporters.
After the raid on the former president’s residence, establishment media stories have warned of furious Trump supporters declaring “war” on the “deep state,” raising concerns that they are getting ready for political violence or even a second civil war.
However, the White House made it clear that President Biden strongly disapproved of any acts of violence.
On August 8, 2022, supporters of former President Donald Trump congregate near his home in Palm Beach, Florida. The residence was raided by the FBI to seize classified White House records.
“There is no room for political violence in this nation,” Jean-Pierre added. “People have the right to express themselves peacefully, but we would strongly denounce any plans to commit violent acts of any kind.”
To show their support for the president, a huge crowd of Trump boosters congregated in front of former President Trump’s house in Florida.
Jean-Pierre refused to go into specifics regarding the FBI raid, stating that President Biden had no prior knowledge of it and found out about it via the news.
She also refused to comment on Biden’s campaign use of federal law enforcement to break into the house of a potential opponent in the 2024 election, which appears to be a politically motivated prosecution.
“We are not in a position to address any ongoing inquiries,” she added.
The Department of Justice and the FBI have not made any statements about the raid or given a reason for why they obtained a search warrant on Donald Trumps residence.
According to news reports, FBI agents spent nine hours scouring through Trump’s residence, dismantling a safe in his private office and even rummaging among former First Lady Melania Trump’s clothing.
