Once, again, the Media from the very start has framed the narrative of the FBI search of Trump’s resort/Club-residence as Trump’s personal residence. Yes, Trump may reside in a resort, but the media’s failure to correctly classified Mar-A-Largo as a club and resort opened to the public created a false and ambiguous narrative.
Yes, no other previous president resides in a Club/resort that is open to selected members ..thus the need to emphasize the dangers and urgency that may have prompted the FBI to act.
Now, Donald Trump said Monday that FBI investigators took his passports when they raided his Florida home last week in search of classified documents that he may have held onto illegally after leaving office.
“In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social. “This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country. Third World!”

It’s not clear why the FBI may have taken his passports or why he apparently has three of them. Trump said one was expired; it’s possible that he has a regular non-expired passport in addition to a second special issuance passport as a former U.S. president.
