Republicans tweet ‘Defund The FBI’ after Donald Trump’s home raid

‘Defund the FBI’ made the rounds on Twitter as news that the FBI raided the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida unannounced on Monday, made its rounds on social media.

Donald Trump’s home raided by the FBI

The search comes as political figures have accused Donald Trump of taking classified documents from the White House, reports the Associated Press.

When news of the search broke, many Republicans took to Twitter and said the GOP should disband the organization.

Republicans want to ‘defund the FBI’

Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia were among many who expressed similar sentiments.

In a now-deleted Tweet, Boebert said:

GOP Majority Must Defund All Forms Of Tyranny Across Biden Government @FBI

Greene tweeted:

Conservative journalist Todd Starnes said the ‘FBI’ had been ‘armed’ and should be ‘dismantled’.

A few people with a different opinion found it hypocritical, given that many of those who tweeted about defunding the police were champions of “back the blue” during the George Floyd protests.

Donald Trump issues statement on FBI raid

Donald Trump made a statement and said in part:

Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. He also called the raid a “dark period.”

Roommates, what do you think?
