Donald Trump may form a new political party following his departure from the White House.
Trump discussed forming a “Patriot Party” last week with several aides and other people close to him, according to people familiar with the matter, the Wall Street Journal has reported.
A “Patriot Party National Committee” website says it wants to “restore constitutional conservative leadership” and is “a movement for conservatives that have been left in the cold by the establishment GOP.” The platform promotes “responsible gun ownership,” “family values,” and “fiscal accountability.” Trump’s connection to the group is unclear.
Links from the website to Patriot Party Twitter accounts and state party accounts show several of them have been suspended. The website also lists a disabled Parler account. The social media company was removed from its servers over a week ago.
