Tens of millions of Donald Trump’s supporters want to know what the former president is going to do with his post-White House life, and his last chief of staff, Mark Meadows, provided some insight into those activities on Thursday.
Simply put — Trump isn’t going anywhere, and if I were a Republican who voted to impeach him, I’d be filling out job applications right about now.
The Washington Examiner noted:
Former President Donald Trump “plans to stay in the arena,” according to one of his top White House aides.
Mark Meadows, who was Trump’s final chief of staff, spoke about plans for the future Thursday in a radio interview with host Sebastian Gorka, who himself is a former White House adviser.
He offered rare insight into what Trump is up to these days, more than three weeks removed from the White House and now facing a Senate impeachment trial.
Meadows, who said he spoke to Trump on Wednesday and Thursday, said Trump “continues to put America first, but he also plans to stay in the arena.“
He also said, “America and the 75 million voters are not done with Donald Trump and all he did for the country,” referring to the number of people who voted for Trump in the 2020 election.
Trump met with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy at his Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach, Florida, in late January, after which his Save America political action committee said the former president struck a deal to help Republicans win back the majority in the House.
Trump has been lying low during the impeachment, the second one in as many years, as he continues to live in the heads of Democrats. He’s been booted off all of the left-wing social media platforms as well, so he’s got ready access to ‘the world.’
There has been some talk that Trump may try to start his own social media platform as well, which would be about the only way he’ll ever get back online.
“I would expect that we will see the president reemerge on social media,” top campaign adviser Jason Miller said when asked what Trump plans to do next, Breitbart News reported earlier this month. “Whether that’s joining an existing platform or creating his new platform, there are a number of different options and a number of different meetings that they’ve been having on that front. Nothing is imminent on that.”
All options are on the table,” Miller continued without elaborating. “A number of things are being discussed. Stay tuned there because you know he’s going to be back on social media. We’re just kind of figuring out which avenue makes the most sense.”
Ten Republicans joined with Democrats to impeach Trump on a single article of impeachment last month. He is accused of inciting an insurrection in connection to the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.
With Trump’s defense team set to start making its case on Friday, Meadows predicted a Senate vote will happen Friday night or Saturday, ending in acquittal.
