Supporters of President Donald Trump gathered outside of his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida, on Monday night following the news that the FBI had raided the 45th president’s home.

Online videos shared on social media showed footage of countless vehicles decked out with “Save America” signs and American flags to show their support for Trump.

One video even showed the crowd playing Lee Greenwood’s hit song, “God Bless the USA,” which has become President Trump’s signature song when he appears at rallies.

On Monday evening, President Trump announced in a statement made through his Save America PAC that this home in Florida was “under siege” by the FBI and that they had raided and occupied it.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” he stated. “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

He further referred to the raid as “prosecutorial misconduct” and “the weaponization of the Justice System.”

Trump’s supporters have since been gathering outside of his Palm Beach home to show their solidarity. Those gathered outside Mar-a-Lago additionally drew the attention of passing motorists, who honked their car horns to show their support for the president.

Additionally, conservatives across the U.S. weighed in following the raid. Kari Lake, the Trump-endorsed gubernatorial nominee in Arizona, released an official statement roasting the “illegitimate and corrupt regime” of the federal government.

“Our Government is rotten to the core,” she wrote on Monday. “These tyrants will stop at nothing to silence the Patriots who are working hard to save America. This is an incredible horrendous abuse of power. If we accept it, America is dead. We will not accept it.”
