The search warrant, served on August 8, was part of an ongoing Justice Department investigation into the discovery of classified White House records recovered from the former president’s Florida home in January this year.
“It has caused the greatest fundraising, my father’s poll numbers have absolutely gone through the roof,” Eric Trump said.
“They are not even talking about any other Republican candidates because they have all kind of disappeared, they are not even in the equation,” he said in reference to the possibility of his father standing as the Republican primary candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
He added: “Last night I had an argument between two people who were trying to buy Lara [Trump, his wife] and I dinner to apologize for what the United States Government has done to our family.

“There is only so many times you can cry wolf, people are not buying this sham in the country, they see the weaponization of the FBI.
“They are calling it the police state in this country, people get this for what it is. They have removed the wool from people’s eyes and people know exactly what is going on.
“They are targeting Donald Trump, they are targeting his family, everyone around him, his lawyers, anybody who is close to Donald Trump. Anybody who is effective, they are targeting right now and people understand this for exactly what it is worth.”
Posting on his Truth Social website, he said: “Republicans could win many additional seats, both in the House & Senate , because of the strong backlash over the raid at [Mar]-a-Lago.
“Polls are showing that some lost Republican territory over the last number of weeks has been more than made up with the unannounced Break In by the FBI, which should never have happened!”
Trump also shared a number of news stories suggesting the Mar-a-Lago raid could boost the Republicans politically.
One, from Newsweek , reported on a Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action poll which found more than 80 percent of Republicans say they are more likely to vote following the FBI operation.
Newsweek has contacted the Trump organization for comment.
