President Trump is reportedly talking to political allies about starting his own political party the “Patriot Party.”
President Trump discussed forming a so-called “Patriot party” with some of his top aides and supporters, reports said. Traditionally, third parties have failed to gain steam in challenging both the Democrat and Republican parties. However, due to his large base of supporters and the record number of people who voted for him in 2020, many believe President Trump has what it takes to carry on the movement.
This comes after the years of back-stabbing and the vicious treatment he received from Republican elites in the party and in the White House.
The Republican Party was fast to dump President Trump after November 3rd. They left him high and dry to defend himself and his movement from the record fraud in the 2020 election.
And GOP leaders in powerful positions, including Liz Cheney and Mitch McConnell, were vocal this past month in their hatred of the historic president.
Do it, Don!
President Donald Trump has reportedly spoken to allies about forming his own political party and he wants to call it the “Patriot Party.”
“Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.”
The report indicated that it was unknown how serious Trump was about the idea and noted that the investment of time and resources needed to make it a major player in American politics could be a deterrent to the president.
The report came after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed the president during a speech today on the Senate floor.
According to Politico, he spent days calling his close advisors to ask what he needs to do to “stay part of the conversation.” In his ‘farewell address,’ the President hinted at his future political career by saying the ‘MAGA movement’ is only just beginning.
“As I conclude my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together,” President Trump stated. “We did what we came here to do and so much more.”
"Thank you and farewell.
God bless you. God bless the United States of America." 🇺🇸 https://t.co/LEuDDUXZ84

Nonetheless, President Trump remains committed to the American people.
“I will always fight for you,” he said. “I will be watching. I will be listening and I couldn’t have done it without you. So just a goodbye, we love you, we will be back in some form.”
