Trump called the claim that he had top-secret nuclear documents in Mar-a-Lago a hoax, which in Trump’s language means it’s true.
Trump claims evidence was planted by the FBI

That from the ex-president is as good as an admission that he classified nuclear-related documents at Mar-a-Lago. pic.twitter.com/Rb2OjQoiqW

Everything Trump listed in his post was true. Trump has been indicted twice. This is no joke. The Mueller investigation found that the Trump campaign had a relationship with the Russians.
The strongest point suggesting there were nuclear documents in Trump’s position is his claim that the FBI had evidence against him.
It’s not complicated. If there weren’t top secret nuclear documents at Mar-a-Lago, Trump could say there were no nuclear documents at Mar-a-Lago, but by claiming that the evidence was planted he was trying to discredit what that was FBI had found.
Trump believes he had unlimited power as president
Arrows point to Donald Trump stealing top secret documents because Trump’s idea of Presidential power is that he was the United States and has unlimited power. Under this belief system, Trump would feel like he could take anything he wanted, including top-secret documents.
Too little attention is paid to the fact that Trump withheld documents from the FBI and the National Archives. He lied and said that all the materials were handed over when they weren’t.
Every day the question has to be asked what Donald Trump intended to do with the stolen documents?
Trump is the first former president to steal classified information on his way out, and his claim that the nuclear weapons allegation was a hoax but the evidence was planted is an admission of guilt.
