Soon after Trump left the White House, speculation arose over what he’d do next. He promised in his farewell that he’d be back “in some form or another.” Many wondered if he would try again for the presidency in 2024.
The Democrats are so scared of Trump returning, that they’ve mounted a doomed impeachment effort, hoping to bar him from the office. But the prospect of getting 17 Republican votes to convict is unlikely.
Rumors swirled that Trump, in response to an impeachment vote, would form his own political party to rival both Republicans and Democrats. While the “Patriot Party” could have brought in millions of supporters, many worried it would give Democrats an upper hand in elections.
As it turns out, the Patriot Party is not to be. But Donald Trump has no plans of shrinking away any time soon.
President Donald Trump has reportedly dropped an idea to start a third political party, which was briefly floated last week, and is now focused on helping the Republican Party win back the House and the Senate in 2022…
“The President has made clear his goal is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022,” Miller said. “There’s nothing that’s actively being planned regarding an effort outside of that, but it’s completely up to Republican Senators if this is something that becomes more serious.” [Source: Daily Wire]
The left-wing media claim Trump floated the idea of a third party to get some Republicans “in line” over the impeachment vote. But the reality is, it was unlikely Democrats would have been able to get 17 Republicans to betray the will of 75,000,000 voters by convicting Trump—especially with zero evidence backing the left’s charge.
What appears to be more likely is that Trump is watching what will happen in the Senate. He plans to be an active voice during the 2022 midterms. Those Republicans who defend his reputation and record could see him support them for re-election. Those that don’t… well, they may see him throw his weight behind a primary challenger.
Donald Trump’s endorsement tends to be a deciding factor in many elections. He has helped numerous Republicans win both their primary and general races. Even in 2020, his influence helped Republicans at both the state and federal level.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Trump re-emerge in the coming years, voicing his support for Republicans battling to retake Congress. The House is just a few seats away from flipping red. And after the bloodbath that was the Georgia runoffs, there will be many voters eager for a change in the Senate.
Who knows? We might even see a return of Trump’s legendary rallies. Democrats thought they got rid of Trump for good (even kicking him off social media). But it seems like they’ll be stuck with him for a long time.
