In recent months, Trump has been giving strong hints over another bid for president. Meanwhile, the US Justice Department has been investigating allegations that classified records were taken to Mar-a-Lago after his presidency.

And separately, investigations in the January 6 siege of the US Capitol have been intensifying.

The FBI did not respond to requests for information, and it was unclear whether the reported raid was connected to either investigation.

Monday's raid comes after the US National Archives and Records Administration in February notified Congress that it had reclaimed around 15 boxes of White House documents from Mar-a-Lago, some of which contained classified materials.
