Online, people speculated Trump may have wanted to flee to a country with no extradition treaty with the US like Russia or Saudi Arabia.
\u201cTrump is a flight risk & his passport should be confiscated\n\nAccording to his friends, he\u2019s been obsessing about his plane in the wake of the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago\n\nInteresting to note that the United States has NO EXTRADITION TREATY with Saudi Arabia or the Russian Federation\u201d
As for the two passports, often government officials are given two passports- one on behalf of the country they declare citizenship in and the other a diplomatic passport.
This means Trump's US passport and diplomatic passport may have been taken, although it has not been confirmed by Trump nor the Department of Justice.
\u201c(Trump having two unexpired passports and one expired passport isn\u2019t the issue\u2014government officials generally have two passports. What is interesting, if this news is true, is the FBI is acknowledging what I\u2019ve long said, which is that as a factual matter Trump is a flight risk.)\u201d
