Donald Trumps Mar-a-Largo mason was raided by the FBI Monday. Following the breaking news, a slew of conspiracies and memes have circled the internet as Americans question the fate of the controversial 45th President. Among many questions, will this affect Trump's 2024 presidential run?
Dozen of boxes were removed from Trump's home by the FBI in an investigation that is rumored to focus heavily on efforts to overturn the 2020 election and the removal of records from the White House following his leave in January 2021. The former president now faces a plethora of investigations, civil lawsuits, and possible criminal charges. The outcome of a criminal conviction would undoubtedly block his third run but could the financial implications of fighting such charges also be a hindrance?
Many praised the raid even suggesting the possible execution of the former president, while others were quick to come to his defense. Florida Gov. Ron Desantis tweeted Monday, “The raid on Mar-a-Lago is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves."
Is there still a possibility of a Trump/Desantis ticket and how will conservatives rise up should this raid result in Trump's disqualification?
