Melania Trump, former First Lady, felt violated when FBI agents raided her Mar-a-Lago home last month, according to her former husband, President Donald Trump.

On Aug. 8, the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago while the former president was in New York City. In his Truth Social platform post after returning home, he claimed that his residence had been "ransacked" and that the FBI agents had not removed their shoes.

“She felt very violated. I mean, this is a terrible thing. They go into her closet, they go through her dresses, and who knows what else, and it wasn’t left the way they found it,” Trump told Newsmax in a phone interview on Sept. 20.

Trump added, “I didn’t walk into mine and say, ‘Oh, this is exactly so nice, the way they put it back.’”

Trump complained to the FBI agents about their "rummaging" through Melania's clothing and personal items during the Florida raid. His 16-year-old son Barron's room was also searched by the FBI earlier in September, Trump disclosed.
