Donald Trump posted to his social media platform late Monday night an eerie, apocalyptic ad calling America "a nation in decline" - while further promising a political future for himself where he says "the best is yet to come." The ad was posted to Truth Social, the former president's own alternative social media platform, only hours after his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida was raided by the FBI- reportedly as part of an investigation into whether he took classified documents with him when he left the White House.

"We are a nation in decline," Trump announced. "We are a failing nation," he proceeds, pointing to high inflation, high energy costs, and leaving behind soldiers in Afghanistan. The eerie ad was posted late Monday night after Lara Trump seemed on Fox News's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," where she denounced the FBI's raid and said it was about weaponizing the justice system, continuing that people are terrified that her father-in-law is going to run president in 2024. The raid on Monday night comes as Trump is weighing another bid for the presidency. His actions after the 2020 election, where he attempted to invalidate Joe Biden's victory, are under investigation by lawmakers on Capitol Hill. "We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke," Trump announced in the ad. "But soon, we will have greatness again."

Lara Trump explained to Fox News, "look, my father-in-law, as anybody knows, who's been around him a lot, loves to save things like newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs, documents that he had every authority ... to take from the White House." [tweet_embed] August 10, 2022[/tweet_embed] It started Monday morning and took several hours. It is highly unusual for a federal raid to occur at the residence of a former commander in chief. "These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before," Trump announced in a shocking statement on Monday night. "After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate."
