The nation has been waiting, tirelessly, to find out what Donald Trump is going to do next…and that goes for both those who love him and those who loathe him.
Americans of the MAGA mindset are hoping and praying that Trump will find it in his heart to return to the political realm sooner rather than later. Moderate Republicans are less enthused about his continued influence on the GOP, and Democrats really just wish he’d go away.
So, no matter what The Don decides, someone’s going to walk away unhappy.
That’s why the latest news out of Trumpland is causing such a stir.
Former President Trump is starting up a new political action committee and is eyeing longtime top political adviser and aide Corey Lewandowski to head up the new super PAC, multiple people with knowledge of the conversations confirmed to Fox News.
The move was decided during a meeting late last week at Trump’s south Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago when the former president gathered with his political team. The group included 2020 campaign managers Bill Stepien and Brad Parscale, senior adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino, and Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
Sources familiar with the meeting shared that a number of Trump’s post-presidency political activities were discussed and added that plans to start up the PAC were not finalized.
“MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.”
The news broke just ahead of a much anticipated speech by Trump at CPAC, in which the former President is likely to exert his authority over the Republican Party, and possibly even tease another run for the White House in 2024.
