Former President Donald Trump established on Monday a post-presidency office to “advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda” of his administration, setting up the official office that will operate out of Palm Beach County, Florida.
“The Office of the Former President,” according to the press release will serve as the catalyst for setting up and promoting Trump’s upcoming public appearances, correspondence, and statements to “advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.”
“President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People,” the release added.
The announcement from the former president was issued an hour before House Democrats delivered in a ceremonial walk a single impeachment article charging Trump with inciting an insurrection on the Capitol on Jan. 6 to the Senate. This sets in motion Trump’s second impeachment trial that is set to begin on Feb. 9.
Trump’s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale was responsible for creating the new email distribution system for the post-presidency office statement due to the 2020 campaign’s email infrastructure being suspended by the vendor. The email distribution system was created to circumvent outside vendors and prevent media companies from silencing or “canceling” Trump’s future remarks or statements.
Since departing the White House last Wednesday, Trump has remained publicly silent due largely to being de-platformed from almost all social media networks in wake of the Capitol riots, Trump briefly spoke to the Washington Examiner last Friday at his golf club where he said he will make some form of comeback, but didn’t clarify on what exactly.
“We’ll do something, but not just yet,” Trump told the Washington Examiner before an assistant ended the brief interview.
