As the departure entered the countdown, it was revealed that US President Trump was brewing another “big event”.
According to the Wall Street Journal, people familiar with the matter said that Trump has been discussing the formation of a new political party with people around him in recent days, which is his efforts to continue to exert influence after leaving the White House.
People familiar with the matter said that Trump discussed the matter last week with several aides and others close to him.
It was revealed that Trump intends to name the new party “Patriot Party”.
Trump has been at a quarrel with several Republican leaders, including Senate Majority Leader McConnell, recently.
McConnell also said on Tuesday that Trump deserves to be blamed for provoking a deadly riot on Capitol Hill on January 6.
But polls show that Trump still has a strong support among Republican voters.
The report pointed out that it is not clear how serious Trump is to establish a new political party, because it will require a lot of time and resources.
It is worth mentioning that Trump still has a large number of supporters, some of whom were not deeply involved in Republican politics before his 2016 election.
It should be noted that in the United States, third parties usually do not have enough support to play an important role in national elections.
Moreover, any attempt by Trump to establish a new party may be strongly opposed by Republican officials, because it will steal the support of the Republican nominee.
