Trump Has Discussed Starting a New Political Party

Wall Street Journal

President Trump has talked in recent days with associates about forming a new political party, according to people familiar with the matter, an effort to exert continued influence after he leaves the White House.

Mr. Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said. The president said he would want to call the new party the “Patriot Party,” the people said.

Mr. Trump has feuded in recent days with several Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), who on Tuesday said Mr. Trump deserved blame for provoking the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Polls show Mr. Trump retains strong support among rank-and-file GOP voters.

The White House declined to comment.

It’s unclear how serious Mr. Trump is about starting a new party, which would require a significant investment of time and resources. The president has a large base of supporters, some of whom were not deeply involved in Republican politics prior to Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Third parties have typically failed to draw enough support to play a major role in national elections. Any effort to start a new party would likely face intense opposition from Republican party officials, who would chafe at the thought of Mr. Trump peeling off support from GOP candidates.

  1. Great idea, the American National party, AR-15s and AK -47s mandatory,at least one per family member required. Cocaine, Heroin and Speed free of charge, land parcels given to Nationals with buildings for shelter also free of charge.

    If your beek casts a shadow, you will be shot on the spot.

  2. what? the “Loser Party”? LMFAO

    they are all members of this party, every last corrupt SOB

    How about No president , and the new party is We the People ..ONLY!

  3. The only party worth partying about would be The Bill of Rights Party, which is no party at all, but rather a group, composed of men and women who will settle for nothing less than the restoration of our Supreme Law. All else is fodder, fluff, diversion, DECEPTION.


  4. Coming soon to a talmudvision box near you; “Controlled Opposition. The Sequel”!

    And the disenfranchised hopeful idiots who had a dose of being played are about to be played AGAIN!

    1. Martist, I believe that’s so. I have a Trumpster friend who just won’t give up, I’m sure there’s many. They will fight to their own death,….. for nothing.

      1. I believe you, Bob. I know a few myself. I wish their brains were as big as their bravado, then they might be of some use and not an actual useful idiot.
