Former US President Donald Trump sparked disbelief and some support on Wednesday by suggesting that a 2022 FBI search warrant for his Florida mansion indicated President Joe Biden wanted armed agents to shoot him.

According to AFP report, Trump’s latest claim came in response to a court filing outlining the FBI’s plans to search his Mar-a-Lago club, where he stored classified national security documents after leaving the White House.

The filing included standard FBI language allowing the use of deadly force if someone posed an imminent danger. However, Trump, who is running against Biden in the upcoming election, twisted this to claim the Justice Department was ready to kill him and harm his family, according to the report.

“It’s just been revealed that Biden’s DOJ was authorized to use DEADLY FORCE for their DESPICABLE raid in Mar-a-Lago. You know they’re just itching to do the unthinkable,” Trump said in a fundraising email. He further alleged, “Joe Biden was locked & loaded ready to take me out & put my family in danger. He thinks he can frighten me, intimidate me, and KNOCK ME DOWN!”

These comments add to a series of false claims made by Trump, accusing Biden of weaponising the justice system against him. Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer urged lawmakers to condemn Trump’s “outlandish and dangerous” remarks, warning against igniting flames that could harm democracy.

President Biden had recently accused Trump of using Nazi rhetoric following the publication of a video referencing a “unified Reich.”

Trump is using “Hitler’s language. That’s not America’s,” Biden said in a campaign video released on Tuesday.

In the short clip, the Democrat holds a phone in his hand and says, referencing the video: “Is this on his official account? Wow.”

On Monday, Trump shared a video, which was later deleted, on his social media site Truth Social, showing mocks of newspaper articles that would be written if Trump won the presidential election in November.

Among the bits of text featured was a subheading referring to “the creation of a unified Reich.” The term “empire” in German is often associated with the Third Reich under Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime from 1933-1945.

The word Reich in the video presumably refers to the founding of the German Reich in 1871, with the text being taken from a Wikipedia entry on World War I, according to US media.

According to the reports, the video was created using a ready-made newspaper article mask. It has also been used in other clips circulating online.

Other newspaper headlines in the video published on Trump’s platform also make reference to World War I.

Trump’s team later confirmed that the clip had been removed from his account. A spokeswoman for his campaign team said that it “was not a campaign video, it was created by a random account online and reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word.”
