According to Reuters, the office will, among other things, take over the sorting of correspondence and handle the politician’s public appearances
Donald Trump has opened an office in the state of Florida to handle his affairs as former US president. This was reported by Reuters on Monday, citing a statement from the Republican’s headquarters.
According to the distributed data, the office of the former president will take over the function of sorting the correspondence received by Trump, and will also organize his public appearances and compilation of statements. In addition, the document states, the organisation, headquartered in Palm Beach County, Florida, will “advance the agenda of the Trump administration in the interest of the United States” through advocacy and social activism.
On January 24, Jason Miller, an adviser to the former president’s campaign staff, told CNN that Trump had abandoned plans to form a new political party. According to him, the former US leader is pursuing the goal of “taking back the Senate and the House of Representatives [of the US Congress] for Republicans in 2022”. The US Democratic Party won a majority in both houses of Congress in the November 2020 general election.
The Wall Street Journal and several other media outlets had previously reported that Trump had allegedly discussed the possibility of creating a new political party with his associates in recent days. Supposedly, he wanted to call it the Patriot Party. At the same time, CNN stressed that Trump’s advisers had not seriously considered his plans to create a third political force. Politico claimed that Trump had told people in his inner circle that he intended to run for president in 2024.
