Former President Donald Trump said former President Barack Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, many of them classified, and speculated that quite a few pertained to nuclear weapons.

Trumps comments came in a statement released Friday: "President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified. How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots."

A New York Post column claimed Tuesday that at the end of his presidency, Obama took 30 million pages of his administration's records, vowing to digitize them and put them online. The column, by author James Bovard, said the National Archives reveals that no pages have been digitized or disclosed.

The Washington Post, citing sources, reported on Thursday that the FBI searched Trump's Florida home to look for classified documents relating to nuclear weapons.

Monday's search of Mar-a-Lago revolves around the handling of government records and whether Trump has been honest with officials about what he took from the White House.

Trump has called the search an "assault" and complained that the authorities had broken into a safe. He also characterized it as a "weaponization of the justice system" and an effort to prevent him from running for president again in 2024.
