Without a single shred of doubt, the largest political question in the United States today is: What is Donald Trump going to do next?
The former President took the status quo to task during his first term as Commander in Chief, nearly rewriting the rules of modern political engagement. Now, as he strews and plots in sunny Florida, those who know him best say that revenge is on the menu, and another run for office doesn’t seem like a crazy way to get it.
The latest from Camp Trump seems to support this possibility.
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 move comes ahead of Trump’s highly anticipated CPAC speech, in which he will likely tout his continued influence on the Republican Party.
