Insiders have claimed that Donald Trump is in discussions to form a new political party to continue influencing US politics after he departs the White House.
Donald Trump talked to aides and people close to him last week about launching his own party, which would be called the Patriot Party. This comes as Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th president of the United States today.
The Wall Street Journal cited people familiar with the matter stating that Donald Trump had held talks about starting a new party.
The move would help the 74-year-old continue his influence after he vacates office.
Donald Trump lost the US election in November to Joe Biden. Mr Joe Biden won the presidency with 306 electoral college votes to Donald Trump’s 232.
Earlier this month, supporters of Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol building in protest at his election disaster, leading to the deaths of five people – Donald Trump was accused of encouraging his followers into violence with a speech at a demonstration in Washington DC.
He then became the first president to be impeached twice when some Republicans voted with House Democrats on a charge of inciting rebellion.
Donald Trump could be barred from ever holding public office again if more Republicans back his conviction during a Senate trial.
It comes as Boris Johnson has said he looks forward to working closely with president-elect Joe Biden, and in a statement ahead of his inauguration, the Prime Minister said that he cordially congratulated Joe Biden on his historic inauguration as 46th president of the United States and looked forward to working closely with his new administration as they defeat COVID and build back better from the pandemic.
And he said that in their battle against COVID and across climate change, defence, security and in promoting and defeating democracy, their intentions were the same and their nations would work hand in hand to achieve them.
He said that he looked forward to welcoming him to Carbis Bay for the G7 and Glasgow as they join forces to protect the planet and that only through international collaboration can they defeat the shared challenges which they face. Meanwhile, the Home Secretary said Joe Biden’s inauguration marked the start of a new political era.
Priti Patel told Sky News that there’s a change in the presidency but, as ever, when administration changes, the world changes, the directions of travel, from politicians, in particular, political leaders always reflect some of the challenges and changes that we see going on domestically and internationally.
But Donald Trump had the power and he did little with it, and hopefully, he will be legally barred from ever running for anything more than a dog catcher in the future.
Sadly as much of an imbecile he is, this so-called Patriot Party will presumably be a force to be reckoned with, and if he gets enough support, then he will be able to challenge any Government.
But having a patriot name doesn’t make one a patriot, but Americans should be concerned with the possibility of a nationalist party in their country and it seems like Donald Trump will be about for a pretty long time, especially with the support from so many American’s, because he’s like dog’s poop on the bottom of one’s foot.
Although this could just be the knee jerk tantrums of a diminishing man, and the sooner he realises this the better, and hopefully, eventually Donald Trump will become antiquity, consigned to the back shelves of unpalatable history of the worst American president.
