LAS VEGAS, NV – Following the controversial raid that was carried out at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier in August, UFC President Dana White was put on the spot during a press conference where he was asked his thoughts on the matter. In White’s opinion, he feels as though there are about “ten other people’s houses” that were more deserving of an FBI raid rather than Trump.
It’s no secret that White has a good rapport with the former president, with White being among the handful of prominent supporters to come out and endorse Trump as far back as the 2016 election.
While speaking at a post-event press conference in Las Vegas on August 9th, one day after the raid occurred at Mar-a-Lago, White was asked by a reporter what he thought of the whole fiasco.
White admitted during the press conference that he wasn’t too keen on all the details of the raid itself, noting he’d seen “bits and pieces on the news,” but stated that the development is “madness” and that he intended to catch up with Trump in the coming days.
“Yeah, um, it’s madness, man. The whole the whole world is crazy right now. I don’t know what to think, and I don’t know enough about it. And I haven’t talked to him, I’ve only seen bits and pieces on the news. So I don’t know exactly what’s going on, but I’ll probably call him in the next couple of days. I didn’t want to call him like, I’m sure he’s, you know, got better fucking things to do than for me to call and say, ‘Hey, what’s going on over there?’ But I will talk to him in the next couple of days.”
Another reporter from the crowd brought up how some people have been saying in light of the raid that we’re now living “in a post-Constitutional America or a banana republic.” In White’s response, after reiterating that he’s not completely up to speed on what exactly transpired or the surrounding circumstances, he noted that politics aside, there are likely about ten other people who should’ve been subjected to a raid before Trump.
“Yeah, it’s interesting, man. I don’t even know what to say, I don’t even know what to think about any of that stuff. Again, because I don’t know enough about it. But yeah, I can think of about, you know – without getting political right now and getting into all this fucking bullshit – but there’s ten other people’s houses that probably should have been raided before his that haven’t happened. So it will be interesting to see how this plays out.”
Even though White didn’t share any insight as to who these “ten other people” might be that he thinks were more deserving of an FBI raid, it needn’t take a wild imagination to conjure up at least one likely former candidate of whom he was thinking.
