“His speech was only hatred and anger”, denounced Donald Trump, accusing Mr. Biden of having portrayed his supporters as “threats to democracy” and “enemies of the state”.

“The shameful raid and raid on my house in Mar-a-Lago was a travesty of justice,” insisted the former president, who openly flirts with a new candidacy in 2024.

Federal investigators believe that among the 30 boxes seized are top secret documents “probably hidden” to hinder the investigation, says a document from the Department of Justice.
