PALM BEACH, FLORIDA: The Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight faced the wrath of the people on the internet after he took issue with the FBI raid of Donald Trump’s Florida home. He had taken to Twitter to express his anger after the agents searched through the former president’s Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach on Monday, August 8.

In a video posted on the microblogging platform, Voight called the Democrats “fools” and also asked the people of the US to pray so that the 45th leader “rises from this evil act upon him”. The 83-year-old said: “My fellow Americans, we must not allow our nation to crawl into a hole. We must not allow evil to overtake us all. Let us show who’s boss. Let us all pray that Donald Trump rises from this evil act upon him, and makes a comeback stronger than ever.”

The ‘Anaconda’ star continued, “They may try to knock down and tear down this man, but one thing is for sure, President Donald Trump will show the American people the truth. My fellow Americans, barbaric actions against Trump will only prove that the evil ones are afraid of the truth being exposed.”

“The greed and deceit will only show that the Democrat fools are guilty of lies, tricks, and corrupt abuse toward the only president who has the best interest of the American people in this country, the United States of America,” Voight added.

Earlier, Trump had also condemned the raid, which is connected to a probe “into his handling of classified and sensitive material,” BBC reported. In a statement, he had reportedly said, “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.”

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” the 76-year-old noted. He also claimed that “such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.”

Meanwhile, Voight’s sentiments were taken as how he expected as a user slammed: “It is no surprise that your daughter disowned you.” The second user wrote, Dude it's none of those things. He stole classified documents. It's that simple. lmao.” “It sure is America. Where the rule of law is followed, no one is above the law, and everyone is entitled to due process. And even take the 5th amendment to avoid self incrimination if they so choose,” the third one correcting the ‘Midnight Cowboy’ actor said.

“Wow. What theatrics. You’re a great orator of lies. Impressive but innoble,” a tweet read. Another tweet added: “Sorry your lord and savior Trump is facing the consequences of his own actions. SAD.” “I’ve enjoyed many of his films, but his slobbering about his hero worship of Trump is really pathetic,” a critic added.
