Trump Creates “The Office of the Former President” in Florida

If anyone doubted whether Trump would remain involved in politics after leaving office, those concerns have now been removed. The 45th President created an official post-presidency office called The Office of the Former President to oversee his official operations after leaving Washington.

According to a statement, the “office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.”

Though specific actions have yet to be announced, Trump reportedly said, “We’ll do something, but not just yet.” However, he has clearly indicated efforts to help conservatives win back the House and Senate, including support for new Republican candidates to primary those who voted to impeach him.

In his first move post-presidency, former President Trump released a statement supporting his former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in her announcement to run for Governor of Arkansas. The daughter of former Arkansas Governor and Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, Sarah served under Trump in Washington before returning to Arkansas.

Another Trump initiative will certainly involve voter integrity. Maintaining the belief that millions of votes were fraudulently cast in the 2020 election, the former President will encourage actions to limit mail-in votes, ballot harvesting and support voter ID requirements. He’ll likely focus his initial efforts in key battleground states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia.

Yet before The Office of the Former President moves too far ahead in its plans, Trump will likely have to face a second impeachment hearing in the Senate. This proceeding continues even though he is no longer actively serving as President, an unprecedented move many legal scholars have deemed unconstitutional.

Current plans include a Senate hearing beginning February 8, allowing Trump’s legal team the opportunity to prepare a defense. President Biden has most recently called the trial “necessary,” though he does not believe the former President will be impeached.

Of course, why impeach Trump now that he is a private citizen? As others have noted, the Democrats are no longer concerned with removing Trump from office; they want to keep him from running for office in the future.

Trump’s Office of the Former President represents one step to bypass this blow, opening an unofficial opportunity for him to maintain a role that allows significant influence within conservative politics. The act takes a similar approach to Biden’s Office of the President Elect he promoted following the November election, a premature, unofficial declaration to help persuade Americans he was President long before the certification of the electoral vote.

Regardless of the outcome of the Senate impeachment hearings, Trump will clearly not go away quietly. He will continue to oppose leftist politics, supporting true Americans who seek to drain the swamp in Washington and promote America First across the nation.

  5. Jean says

    We need President Trump to save America from this leftist socialist agenda. No to funding the Paris Agreement resulting in outrageous taxes; Biden’s forced equity training which minimizes anyone that isn’t of color; shielding undocumented immigrants from deportation; canceling Keystone XL pipeline; pulling funds from border wall; etc.

  15. dtrima says

    The left is afraid of our Former President Trump. They are running scared.

  16. dtrima says

    I read a tweet from someone who was unaware that her husband would lose his job in the oil industry if Biden was elected. She was complaining to a friend that she just couldn’t stand Pres. Trump’s mean tweets and now her husband was on the phone yelling at her, because everyone he worked with was losing their jobs. She could be my sister who was thrilled with the performance of her 401k, but Pres. Trump’s tweets were beyond anything that she and her dainty left friends could tolerate. I’m still laughing at her, we will all suffer because of the stolen election, but I will enjoy listening to those I actually know voted for Biden whine and pule.

  17. Peggy says

    These comments are all so true and spot on!
    It makes me proud to be a patriot and a true supporter of the best Commander and Chief this country ever had! I just hope and pray he can keep us safe from China and the Dems socialist agenda.
    I love the America that Trump worked so hard to make great again!

  18. Patricia Doran says

    I totally agree. Trump was the greatest president ever and I am so excited to know that he is still keeping an eye on America. I was taught in school that hate and love are closely united. I think behind Pelosi’s blind hatred is her love for Trump that will never be returned.

  19. Elizabeth A Galloway says

    i will continue to support TRUMP and get biden out of office he’s so corrupt and treason don’t know what he is doing.he needs to go.

  20. Mike & Kim Pasby says

    The election was a total train wreck, but I’m thankful that former(that makes my stomach hurt), President Donald J Trump is still in the picture. The left will someday be brought to justice. I was livid, but after speaking with my Creator, I am assured He has a plan—-therefore, God bless you Mr (former, 😖) President! Thank you for you and your family’s sacrificial service. You are the people President, those who disagree are about to find out! God help us! 🙏🏼🇺🇸🇮🇱🕯

  21. Billy Fincher says

    Dear President Trump,
    First of all I want to say thank and we love you. I will back you with my last breath because you have been the greatest president of my lifetime. But I, like many need some closure. I know for a fact that brain dead Biden is not the president. I am not talking about the number of votes either. I know that by them interfering with the election through outside countries, during war time, and we have been at war since 2001, that is treason punishable by death. I also know that anyone in congress involved in this fraud, automatically loses their seat in congress. I also know Mr. President, that under constitutional law, you automatically become President again by default. The 75 million people that love you and still support are getting thirsty for something. I understand that we can`t be told everything that is happening at the moment, but can`t we get anything to quench our thirst? We The People are willing to get in the fight.

  22. pat says

    ok america; wake up, we still have a chance to keep our country if we stick with pres trump against the corrupt/conspirators . we must all do our part , even if it’s to talk to a friend( not libs they will only scream at you) we must win back the full congress so when pres trump rises again in 2024 he can finish to MAGA.

  23. Al Weir says

    Trump would be foolish to get involved with politics again. So would anyone who wants to go against the communist left establishment. Look what they did to Trump every day of his presidnct and even AFTER he left.
    This nation is now officially totally corrupt on all levels to include the phoney elections and the media. If I
    were Trump I would say with confidence and pride: “Hay, I promised to MAGA and I did. I did my best but’this is NOT what a majority of communists in the USA now wants. Good luck & God hpefully bless you all. ”
    “It’s NOT the voter that counts in an election, but the people you have counting the votes that make you win!”

  24. Dolores says

    I also support President Trump to the bitter end. May God Bless him in whatever he choses sto do.

  25. Carol says

    God bless President Trump in his endeavor. I will support him to the bitter end.

  26. Hunter Wood says

    I believe Trump has many more supporters than any of the democrats. When a posting of votes have 200,000 more votes than voters it is obvious that there is much fraud. The democrats in congress, in the democrat run cities and in the WH do not want this fraud investigated. It is in their interest to put this off as poor loser talk. Since they are in control, then this is what will happen. These areas of voter fraud which have democrat run cities will not investigate nor prosecute. It is difficult, if not impossible, to give the police chief a speeding ticket.

    Way to go, President Trump, you won that election fair and square, and 80,000,000 Americans know it. If you start the Patriot Party, the spineless republicans will no longer be relevant. 4 years under Beijing Biden and Horizontal Harris will effectively kill the dumocrats. I’m with you all the way.

  35. Reita says

    I am behind you President Trump, Never going over to the Rinos!

  36. BIGJIM613 Moore says

    As far as I am concerned President Trump is still president. The election was stolen and will be proven in the future.
    God help America with China joe and his criminal family Mafia as the illegally elected president.

  37. John N. Elliott says

    I am allowing Dennis Prager to speak for me about this matter. John Elliott, Sun City West, AZ

    The Most Important Question About the 2020 Election by Denis Prager January 30, 2021
    Since the day after the 2020 presidential election, I have said I am agnostic with regard to whether the election was honestly or dishonestly decided.
    The primary reasons for my agnosticism are the usual ones:
    The anomalies:
    In 132 years, no president has received more votes in his run for reelection and lost. Yet Donald Trump received 10 million more votes in 2020 than in 2016 — and lost.
    Trump won 18 of the 19 counties both Democrats and Republicans regard as the “bellwether” counties that virtually always go with the outcome of presidential elections. Yet he lost.
    He won four bellwether states — Florida, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina. Yet he lost.
    Republicans held onto all the House seats they were defending and gained another 13 seats. Yet, Trump lost.
    Add the following to the anomalies:
    Unprecedented efforts were made in some states to change election laws.
    Mostly Democratic states sent out tens of millions of ballots or applications for absentee ballots to people who never requested them.
    Voting began in some states six weeks before Election Day.
    People have submitted sworn affidavits at great personal cost and with possible perjury charges that they witnessed ballot tampering on election night.
    But all these things would matter little if Democrats involved in ballot-counting felt morally compelled to count votes honestly.
    So, then, there is one question I have never heard posed that trumps all other considerations: Would moral considerations prevent Democrats from cheating to oust Trump? Or, to put the question in the positive: Would Democrats deem it morally obligatory to cheat on behalf of Joe Biden?
    The answer to the first question is no: Moral considerations would not prevent decent Democrats from cheating to prevent Trump’s reelection. The answer to the second question is yes: Decent Democrats would deem it morally obligatory to cheat on behalf of Biden.
    For four years, the media and their party, the Democrats, told us every day that Trump is a fascist, a dictator, a racist and a white supremacist; that he was an agent of the Russian government — a real-life Manchurian candidate. We were also repeatedly told by the lying media (Trump’s accurate description of the mainstream media) that in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump said there are “very fine” Nazis (see the PragerU video, “The Charlottesville Lie”). Yes, the media told us with a straight face that a man with a Jewish daughter, Jewish son-in-law and Jewish grandchildren said there are fine Nazis. Biden said he decided to run for president because of this lie.
    So, then, here is the question: Why would anyone who sincerely believed Trump is a white-supremacist fascist dictator not cheat if he or she could prevent such a person from becoming or remaining president of the United States?
    Let me sharpen this question: Isn’t someone who could prevent a fascist, white-supremacist, Nazi-defending dictator morally obligated to cheat if he or she could prevent such a person from becoming president?
    I certainly would. If I were in a position to cheat in order to prevent a fascist from becoming president, why would I not cheat? I think of the most relevant example: the Nazis in the 1932 elections, Germany’s last free election until after World War II. Though the Nazi Party did not receive a majority of votes, the Nazis held the most seats in the Reichstag, and the head of the party, Adolf Hitler, was named chancellor of Germany. If I were in a position to have prevented the Nazis from coming to power by cheating in the vote-count, wouldn’t I have been morally obligated to do so — and therefore done so? The answer is obvious.
    To repeat, I have never said Biden did not win the election. And even if there was considerable fraud, that doesn’t mean the election result would have been different.
    But there are consequences to beliefs. Unless Democrats knew they were lying for four years when they labelled Trump a fascist, racist, Nazi, dictator, etc., were they not duty-bound to cheat on Biden’s behalf? So, then, when you have circumstantial evidence (not proof), combined with opportunity, desire, motive and, most important, no moral argument against cheating and a strong moral argument for cheating, it isn’t a “lie,” and it isn’t a crackpot conspiracy theory, to wonder about the integrity of America’s 2020 presidential election.

    I would like to add another anomalie: There has never been an election won by a candidate who mostly stayed in his basement while his opponent traveled all over the country speaking at rallies of tens of thousands of people. John Elliott
