“Mr. Donald Trump is still the head of the Republican Party, let’s not get confused about that. He is still the most famous politician. And he will decide what he wants to do, “ Former US Ambassador to Germany Richard Allen Grenell said on Newsmax last weekend.
“He has personally told me many times that he wants to run again. So we’ll see if that is certain and how it goes on. I think we have a long way to go, “ Mr. Grenell added.
Almost immediately after the election ended, speculation about Mr Trump’s reelection in 2024 began to emerge. Polls show that the former President is still loved by Republican voters, “And that’s one reason why you shouldn’t try to start a new party,” Grenell argued.
He said: “Obviously, Mr. Donald Trump is a Republican and should run again as a Republican.”
Recently, on January 25, Trump’s campaign team also denied any involvement with the newly formed political committee, known as the MAGA Patriot Party. However, he created the “Former President’s Office” to advance his goals after four years in office.
- Mr. Trump established the ‘Office of the Former President’ in Florida
Five subordinate employees followed Mr. Trump from the White House to Florida to set up his personal office and plan his next steps.
The office will provide the former President the official means to coordinate public appearances, future official statements and activities to “Promote US interests and implement the Trump administration’s agenda through advocacy, organization, and public action.”
The US 45th president is currently facing the prospect of becoming the first president to be impeached after leaving office, as the Senate plans to convene a trial in February. Some observers believe that the purpose of this second impeachment trial is only “Totally partisan” and to prevent Mr. Trump from running in the future.
In his first comments since leaving office, Trump told a reporter last week that he would be back in some way, but did not specify. On the day his successor was sworn in, Mr. Trump told supporters, “We will be back in some way.”
Mr. Jason Miller, another former Trump adviser, also said earlier this month that the former president will likely participate in midterm elections in 2022.
“President Trump guarantees that we will regain the House of Representatives by 2022,” Mr. Miller said on “War Room”.
Even so, there are also a handful of Republican officials who have tried to draw limits to Trump after the Capitol chaos, blaming him for what happened.
On January 6, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell even spoke in the Senate “The crowd has been crammed with lies” and “Provoked by the President and other powerful figures”, accused President Trump of leading to riots at the Capitol.
