Two days after FBI agents raided Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago lavish estate, a plane has flown over the Florida residence to mock the former US President.

Cameras caught a small yellow plane flying over the 45th American President's Palm Beach residence.

It was towing behind it a small banner that read: "HA HA HA HA HA HA."

Miami resident Thomas Kennedy told USA Today that he and a group of friends pooled funds to pay $1,800 ($AUD 2,536, £1,048) to fly the banner over the state for four hours on August 10.

"We thought it would be funny," the Democratic activist said, as per USA Today.

"From our perspective, Trump is a bully and we wanted to give him a taste of his own medicine."

He posted a video of the little plane to rub salt in Trump's wounds, which has now been viewed nearly half a million times.

"We got a little message flying over Mar-a-Lago for Trump and the losers gathered there," he said on Twitter, accompanying the footage of the plane as it soared across the sky.

The 31-year-old revealed that the message was for Trump and his supporters, who have been gathering outside the former US President's home.

"My message to them would be: Do something better with your time," he told USA Today.

But was it all worth it? According to Kennedy, bloody oath.

"I would do it again. One hundred percent," he told the US publication.

Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate was raided on August 8, with the former US leader writing on social media that he wasn't at all pleased at all by the unexpected visit from the feds.

He said in a statement: "After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate."

ABC News reported that The Justice Department has been investigating allegations that 'boxes of records containing classified information' were taken to the Mar-a-Lago estate after Trump's tenure as the US President ended in early 2021.

The National Archives and Records Administration reportedly flagged the issue with The Justice Department.

They alleged there were 15 boxes in Trump's Florida residence and they contained classified material.

It's not clear whether the raid was related to this issue.

Trump's team has since suggested that incriminating evidence may have been planted during the search, however there is no evidence to support this claim.

In the days after the FBI raid, Trump invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid questioning from the New York Attorney General on an unrelated matter, despite previously saying that people who are innocent don’t need it.
