U.S. President Trump is about to end his term, and he is also caught in the internal struggle of the Republican Party.
U.S. media reports said that Trump discussed the possibility of forming a new political party with his confidants and aides, and he wanted to name it “Patriot Party”.
Last week, Trump discussed with his confidants and aides about the formation of a new party, the Patriot Party.
It is not clear how serious Trump is about this matter.
The Hill reported that there was increasing doubts about whether Trump would run for president again in 2024.
If he is running again, he may exclude other Republican candidates who have the opportunity to be elected from the competitors.
However, in the United States, no third party has traditionally been strong enough to challenge Democrats and Republicans.
Republican leaders may strongly oppose Trump’s efforts, because it is equivalent to Trump taking away the votes of other Republican candidates.
Trump has a large following, some of whom were not actively involved in Republican politics before he entered the White House.
After the Capitol Hill riots, Trump’s relationship with some Republican leaders deteriorated.
U.S. Senate Republican Leader McConnell publicly accused Trump of inciting supporters to attack the Capitol.
