President Trump has been relatively quiet since leaving office, but it's honestly to be expected.
He now has to resume his businesses and get everything in order which includes adjusting to being such a targeted individual outside of the White House.
Oh, and of course, the other reason we haven't heard much from him is because he's been kicked off of every one of the big social media platforms. But the truth is, he's been busy, politically speaking.
Getting personal time with President Trump means you are either a member of his exclusive club or have a direct line to the former president. However, his dramatic rise to influence in the Republican Party is as strong as ever.
There are a few with aspiring political futures who have yet to be included in a close-knit circle of conservative allies. That doesn't mean Republicans such as Nikki Haley are outsiders. What the list of reported meetings and perceived endorsements does mean is what matters.
Many supporters feared President Trump would take the easy path after enduring such a contentious election and the bombardment of hatred that followed him as he and Melania exited Pennsylvania Avenue.
Anyone who thought that to be the result did not know President Trump the man. There is no "give-up" in this proud American's DNA. The Trump influence on the Republican Party is far from over. In fact, it may have found new life in a second ill-advised attempt at impeachment.
Those close to the former president insist he has shifted his immediate focus to this influence he has on immediate concerns. The primary goal will be to reinvigorate his Make American Great Again agenda. Some contend this is somehow an agenda fostered out of revenge.
That may be completely opposite what President Trump's true ambition is. He launched a grassroots campaign to entrust American's with taking back what is theirs, their country. Having a second term in the White House ripped from them, many feel dejected and cheated by their government.
According to Politico,
According to three people familiar with the planning, Trump will soon begin vetting candidates at Mar-a-Lago who are eager to fulfill his promise to exact vengeance upon incumbent Republicans who’ve scorned him, and to ensure every open GOP seat in the 2022 midterms has a MAGA-approved contender vying for it.
Trump already has received dozens of requests from prospective candidates seeking to introduce themselves and nab his endorsement, and formal meetings with them could begin as early as March. Now that Trump has survived his second Senate impeachment trial, he has shifted his focus to post-presidential activism — a venture mostly bankrolled by his new leadership PAC, Save America, which had $31 million in its coffers at the start of this month.
There could be no greater time that the Republican Party needs to witness the strength and resilience of their leader than now. Former President Trump will now focus on helping support efforts by those Republicans who share the vision of the majority of his supporters.
The 2022 mid-term elections may seem like a long way off. However, preparing now will help ensure success in 21 months. Those who have stood true to the core conservative values, values that form the ideological base of the Republican Party, will receive rabid support from the former president.
His influence on voters is undeniable. Those with any ambition for political success, at the state or federal level, would do well to heed the voice of the millions who still support the former president.
President Trump is playing a lot of golf at Mar-a-Lago. However, if anyone thinks his energies aren't dutifully focused on fulfilling his promise to help make America the greatest nation in the world, could be making a monumental political gaffe.
