While speaking at the Hispanic Leadership Conference in Miami, former President Donald Trump claimed Mar-a-Lago coverage is boosting news ratings because people are tuning in to see his "beautiful" home.
TRUMP: “You probably read and heard about the document hoax. Has anyone heard about the document hoax? Helicopters flying over Mar-A-Lago. Well, they've given us about five billion dollars worth of free publicity. I will say, people said it's a nice house, if it weren't so nice, they probably wouldn't be doing it because you know it gets ratings. When they look they said that's a beautiful place. They raided and broke into my home. Everyone knows we've done nothing wrong. They are targeting me because they want to silence me, silence you, and silence our amazing “Make America Great Again” movement. There's never been a movement like this in the history of our country, not even close. The weaponized Department of Justice and the politicized FBI are spending millions and millions of dollars on this continued witch-hunt, which started in various forms, all different forms, Russia, Russia, Russia.”
