Former President Donald Trump established an “Office of the Former President,” which aims to advance his goals following four years in office.
According to a news release sent out on Tuesday, the office is based in Palm Beach County, Florida, where Trump has been staying at his Mar-a-Lago resort since leaving Washington, D.C., on the day of President Biden’s inauguration.
Trump has been de-platformed from most social media outlets, including his Twitter account, and he has also been almost entirely mum to the press since departing 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. However, he briefly spoke to the Washington Examiner last week and said he and his team were planning to “do something, but not just yet.”
The Office of the Former President “will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism,” the statement said.
The brief statement added that Trump “will always and forever be a champion of the American people.”
It is unclear if Trump intends to run again in 2024, although some believe that he may.
After getting impeached a second time by the House on a charge of incitement of insurrection in connection to the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot, Trump faces a Senate trial set for next month, as well as the prospect of being barred from holding office again.
Five junior staffers followed Trump from the White House to Florida to set up his personal office and plan his next moves.
