Former President Donald Trump claimed that White House security video would quickly identify the person behind cocaine recently discovered in President Joe Biden's West Wing.
Trump shared the comments after reports that the powdery substance was found in the White House on Sunday.

“Does anybody really believe that the COCAINE found in the West Wing of the White House, very close to the Oval Office, is for the use of anyone other than Hunter & Joe Biden,” Trump posted on Truth Social.
“But watch, the Fake News Media will soon start saying that the amount found was 'very small,' & it wasn’t really COCAINE, but rather common ground up Aspirin, & the story will vanish," he added.
The White House has turned into the Crack House.
This is embarrassing. https://t.co/4ZOtnrVRHK

“Previous field testing showed a positive result for cocaine, but the substance was sent for further evaluation and testing, the Secret Service had said previously. The substance was found near the ground floor entrance to the West Wing, the person said. The location is where staff-led tours of the White House pass through on their way into the building,” CNN reported.
“The substance was found near where guests are asked to leave their cell phones before proceeding into the West Wing. Sources had previously described the substance as a white powder found in a small, zipped bag. It was found by Secret Service personnel conducting routine rounds of the building," it added.
The discovery led to a brief evacuation of the White House as a precautionary measure on Sunday.
Biden was at Camp David over the weekend when the events unfolded Sunday, taking no questions over the issue upon his return.
Rumors have circulated connecting the cocaine discovery with first son Hunter Biden due to his past drug issues and recent visit to the White House, though no evidence has been provided to support the speculation.
The discovery is a big one, with accusations that Biden is letting the White House turn into a crack house as problems grow in his administration.
