The FBI searched the Mar-a-Lago estate of Donald Trump and confiscated the documents found there, some details of which were revealed again in court.

Rage has been reported across the Atlantic
There is a question about the document in question, whether it actually contained details about Emmanuel Macron’s private life, whether the information about him was classified, and whether it came from US intelligence at all. The rolling rock However, the mere revelation of the document’s existence caused transatlantic outrage.
The American magazine, citing “two sources familiar with the situation”, reported that French and US officials are currently trying to find out what Trump knew about the French president and the French government, and assess whether there was a major breach of national security.

He made his political reputation by making exaggerated and false claims
Donald Trump has long implied that he knows incriminating information about the people around him – from friends to political opponents to government officials – even though he knows nothing.
He gained political fame in part by claiming to know the contents of Barack Obama’s birth certificate. After taking office, Trump regularly promised to release evidence incriminating his enemies, but he never did. The hometown scandal subsided after even Trump admitted that Barack Obama was born in the United States, as the former president’s birth certificate was issued by the White House. He also once claimed that details would show that Obama had bugged Trump Tower in New York. He also regularly cited conflicts that were either exaggerated or did not exist in the context of people such as former FBI Director James Comey or Robert Mueller, who led the investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Trump was even later impeached over allegations that he withheld military aid from Ukraine to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son.
Relations between Trump and Macron soured during the US presidency. While initially friendly — Trump shook Macron’s hand and hugged him and peeled the shell off his French counterpart’s shoulder — the good relationship eventually soured due to, among other things, NATO policy and Trump’s isolation.
