In a clear indication that Donald Trump is not going to quietly settle down into the life of a private citizen after his White House stint, a new report on Wednesday said he is discussing forming a new political outfit called the Patriot Party.
Following the riots in Washington on 6 January when Trump supporters breached the Capitol after being egged on by the president himself, he has faced severe criticism with many Republicans deserting him and the Congress impeaching him for the second time.
Since then, Mr Trump has discussed the possibility of such a party with several aides and other people close to him. He wants to name it the “Patriot Party,” reported the Wall Street Journal. In his farewell speech too, Mr Trump said his movement is “just beginning.”
I don’t know about you all, but I would absolutely relish the idea of Donald Trump forming his own political party. No doubt a Trump-led party would splinter the conservative vote even more so than it already is while also serving as the kind of entertainment that only a twice-impeached criminal former President can provide.
So from me to Donald Trump I say, “DO IT DONNIE!”
