There has been quite a bit of talk about what now-former President Trump will move onto now that he’s no longer in the White House.
We know that he’ll be stationed largely at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, after having made the resort his official home address during the time that he was Commander in Chief. He’ll be doing plenty of golfing, that’s for sure, but what’s next for his public life is still unknown.
Some have suggested that a new media network could be in offing, or that Trump could find himself soon announcing a 2024 run for the White House.
And, in his final days, it appears as though The Donald has been thinking a little bigger than that.
President Donald Trump still has a strong base of support, but he’s leaving office with record low approval ratings and with some top Republicans either privately grumbling about him or publicly saying the party should move on from him.
And it’s perhaps no surprise that, per a new Wall Street Journal report, the outgoing president is considering forming a new political party called the “Patriot Party.”
The Journal reports:
President Trump has talked in recent days with associates about forming a new political party, according to people familiar with the matter, an effort to exert continued influence after he leaves the White House.
Mr. Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said. The president said he would want to call the new party the “Patriot Party,” the people said.
The move would almost certainly hamper the Republican Party who has so thoroughly abandoned Trump, during these last few weeks in office, and it’s plain to see that No. 45 is often motivated by a sense of revenge.
