Former President Donald Trump released a video on his Truth Social account just hours after a raid by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) on his estate in Palm Beach, Florida — reportedly in a search for archival documents Trump took from the White House when he left in January 2021.

The video plays like a campaign ad and is titled “A Nation in Decline.”

It begins with the former president stating, “We are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation.” It opens with black and white footage of Trump, along with thunderclaps and rain sound effects in the background.

Throughout the ad, the Republican leader slams President Joe Biden for his repeated failings over the last two years after Trump left office.

From inflation to the failed pullout of Afghanistan, to the American education system — Trump explained Biden’s leadership, or lack thereof, has resulted in an America that has lost its way, along with its respect and revered status around the world.

Notably, the ad also mentions how the Biden administration has politicized the justice system.

“We are a nation that has weaponized its law enforcement against the opposing political party like never before, we have never seen anything like this,” Trump can be heard saying.

While the former president maligned Biden’s leadership saying that, “we are a nation that in many ways has become a joke,” the ad took a hopeful turn by giving Americans a vision for a brighter future.

“But soon we will have greatness again. It was hard-working patriots like you who built this country and it’s hard-working patriots like you who are going to save our country. There is no mountain we cannot climb, there is no summit we can not reach, there is no challenge we cannot meet,” Trump said.

“There is no victory we will not have. We will not bend, we will not break. We will not yield ever, ever, ever. We will never give in, we will never give up and we will never ever back down,” he declared, adding, “We will never let you down as long as we are confident and united the tyrants we are fighting do not stand even a little chance because we are Americans and Americans yield to God and God alone. It is time to start talking about greatness for our country again.”

The ad then concluded with the words, “… the best is yet to come.”
