On Monday afternoon, President Trump began the process of setting up his new office, and sadly it isn’t in D.C.
Trump began his plans to set up his official post-presidency office in Palm Beach, Fl as well as readying his vehicle for his future appearances. In a press release that was issued, it stated that this office will be the one that handles all his future engagements, statements, correspondence, and public statements.
However, with Trump setting up this particular office that does signal the possibility that Trump will not be running again in 2024 as some have speculated.
Here is more from The Hill:
Former President Trump on Monday established an official post-presidency office in Palm Beach County, Fla., setting up a vehicle for future public appearances and statements.
“The Office of the Former President” will manage Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearance, and official activities, according to a press release from the office.
Read the entire statement below:
“Palm Beach County, Florida — Today, the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, formally opened the Office of the Former President.
The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities 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 concludes.
The title of the office could fuel speculation that Trump may not run for president again in 2024, something he and his advisers have not definitively weighed in on.
Trump has been publicly silent since leaving the White House last week for his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach. He has been banned from Twitter and suspended from other major social media platforms in the wake of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
The president briefly spoke to a Washington Examiner reporter at his golf club a few days after leaving office, though he did not make extensive comments about his future plans.
Trump is expected to reside in Florida, and he is surrounded by a handful of loyal aides. Allies have said Trump is eyeing supporting primary challenges against Republicans who he feels wronged him following his election defeat, such as Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) and House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.), who was one of 10 Republicans to vote to impeach Trump earlier this month.
