Donald Trump’s presidency was marked by controversy and polarizing decisions, but a recent report sheds light on a peculiar and unexpected issue: missing ancient ceramic oil lamps. Here’s the full story.
The Lamps Were Not Returned
The lamps, entrusted to the administration by the Israel Antiquities Authority, were not returned as expected, leaving the authority puzzled and uncertain about their whereabouts.
They Were Loaned to Trump
The story began when the Israel Antiquities Authority decided to lend a set of ancient ceramic oil lamps to the Trump Administration for a Hanukkah celebration in 2019.
The Lamps Had a Historical Significance
These treasured artifacts were meant to be part of the festivities, symbolizing the historical significance of the festival of lights.
They Were Not Used in the Event
However, to the Antiquities Authority’s surprise, the lamps were nowhere to be seen at the event, and their attempts to retrieve them remained unsuccessful.
It Had Originally Been in the Possession of a Donor
The lamps had originally been in the possession of a donor to the Antiquities Authority, Saul Fox, who was invited to attend the party as a guest.
Despite their prominent role in the event, the lamps vanished, raising questions about their fate.
Three Years Later
Compounding the mystery, the pandemic struck in early 2020, disrupting everyday life worldwide and causing delays in various activities, including the return of the artifacts. Fast forward three years, and the lamps are still unaccounted for.
They May Be In Trump’s Resort
It is now believed that the lamps may have been packed along with the former president’s belongings and transported to his Mar-a-Lago resort after he left the White House.
There’s No Official Confirmation
However, there is no confirmation that Trump was aware of the presence of these precious artifacts among his possessions.
Israel Antiquities Authority Has Made Multiple Attempts
The Israel Antiquities Authority has made multiple attempts to retrieve the lamps, reaching out to former diplomats with close ties to Trump, such as Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Ambassador to Washington Ron Dermer.
Their Efforts Were in Vain
Regrettably, these efforts have borne no fruit, leaving Israel in a perplexing position of uncertainty about the fate of their treasured antiquities.
The Florida Resort
The missing lamps are not the only valuable items that may have found their way to Mar-a-Lago.
They Seized Boxes Full of Classified Documents
In August 2022, the FBI raided the luxurious Florida resort and seized boxes full of classified documents taken from the White House, sparking further concerns about the handling of sensitive materials.
Trump Was Charged
In the aftermath of the raid and investigation, Donald Trump faced a litany of charges, including willful retention of classified information, withholding a record, conspiracy, false statements, and obstruction.
He pleaded “not guilty” to all counts and vehemently denied any wrongdoing, dismissing the case as a politically motivated “witch hunt” aimed at disrupting his campaign for the 2024 presidential election.
Twitter Users Expressed Their Thoughts
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident. One Twitter user wrote, “Why would Trump be keeping these of all things? What’s his leverage by having these?”
Another user commented, “He is looking for a buyer. He needs the cash for his many criminal cases.”
