Eric Trump said his father, Donald Trump, had nothing in a safe that the FBI looked into as part of a search of the former president's Mar-a-Largo resort on Monday.
The second son of the 45th President said he was with his father in New York City when they discovered about the search, and he suggested that it was related to records that Donald Trump took back with him to his resort in Florida after leaving office.
"Today, to have 30 FBI agents, actually more than that, descend on Mar-a-Largo, give absolutely no notice, go through the gate, start ransacking an office, ransacking a closet, you know — they broke into a safe. He didn't even have anything in the safe," Eric Trump told Fox News.
Donald Trump said in a statement earlier Monday that his Florida home was "under siege" by the FBI and claimed agents "broke into [his] safe."
Eric Trump, who is an executive Vice President at the Trump Organization, said his father "saves" and keeps extensive records of things such as press clippings, pictures, notes from his children, letters from his ex-wife, and more.
