Donald Trump Jr. mocks speculation about nuclear codes at Mar-a-Lago

Donald Trump Jr. says it will “probably be good” if former President Donald Trump had saved nuclear codes at his Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida.

In a marketing campaign occasion Monday for Rep. Matt Gaetz, Florida Republican, the previous president’s eldest son appeared to mock speculation about the labeled paperwork recovered through the FBI raid on the property earlier this month 

“Donald Trump has the nuclear codes in the linen closet at Mar-a-Lago!” he exclaimed.

He then steered that it is probably not such a nasty factor if the previous president did retailer the nation’s nuclear secrets and techniques at his Florida property.

“By the way, for the record, I say that if Donald Trump actually still had the nuclear codes it would probably be good,” he stated. “Our enemies — our enemies — might actually be like, ‘OK, maybe, let’s not mess with them.’ I’m like, when they look at Joe Biden, then they say, ‘We should attack now.’”

FBI brokers seized 11 units of labeled paperwork amongst roughly 28 packing containers faraway from the property throughout their extremely publicized search earlier this month, although the precise info contained within the paperwork just isn’t publicly identified.

Trump insiders insist that Mr. Trump declassified the paperwork below his authority as president.

Several information shops have reported, citing unnamed sources, that the FBI was looking for labeled, nuclear-related paperwork believed to be in Mr. Trump’s possession.

Allies of the previous president have cautioned towards drawing conclusions from the reporting, citing the media frenzy surrounding Mr. Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.
