In an Epic Troll, Donald Trump Opens ‘The Office of the Former President’

News & Politics

For President Trump, turnabout is fair play. Following the election, President Biden opened the Office of the President-Elect in Delaware. He would give speeches and make announcements from behind a podium that looked very much like the one the president uses. It was a blatant attempt to minimize the outgoing administration’s coverage and put to rest any issues raised about election integrity. While the moniker was not new, Biden took it to a new level.

Today, President Trump officially opened the Former President’s Office in an obvious troll to make a broader point. He is not going away, and neither is his policy agenda. While he will need to figure out how to amplify his message off Twitter, it does not appear he intends to stay quiet or take up painting like President George W. Bush.

If the Trump organization had one strong suit, it was marketing. Positioning him as a champion for the American people in this announcement is authentic and the essence of his policy agenda. President Trump was the first to give a voice to disenfranchised voters by saying he would end international agreements that disadvantaged Americans. While his tax policy and judicial appointments were typically Republican, his trade policies and, to some extent, his foreign policy were not.

He used tariffs to leverage other countries to come to the table on trade and immigration with success. Trump was the first to confront China in any significant way and used the military surgically to destroy the ISIS caliphate and eliminate key actors in global terror networks. Thanks to fracking, which allowed for energy independence, his administration could pursue a principled and effective strategy for greater peace in the Middle East. Other NATO members started paying their fair share and the organization endured.

While there were rumors that Trump was thinking about starting a third party, the language in this announcement appears to indicate a different approach. It states he will carry on his agenda through advocacy, organizing, and public activism. This statement implies a GOP-adjacent group like the Tea Party, and it would be well within his ability to build that kind of movement. No single politician in my lifetime could draw the crowds and level of enthusiasm President Trump did. We should be hopeful he can turn the disappointment and anger in his base back to the positive and optimistic mood prevalent at his rallies.

The RNC would be remiss dismissing or antagonizing President Trump. While they may be required to remain neutral in his dustups with Vichy Republicans like Senator Mitt Romney, Trump has an authenticity that appeals to voters the GOP has to figure out how to appeal to and craft a policy platform for if they want to win elections. And if we learned one thing from the virtual RNC, having someone familiar with production value matters. The RNC was head and shoulders above the DNC and had the personal and emotional messaging the GOP needs to get comfortable with.

Ultimately the Trump era forced a situation that had been evolving for some time. The Republican Party is no longer the party of corporate America. The new tycoons are fully bought into the Democrat agenda that crushes working and middle-class families regardless of race. It is that ethos the party leadership needs to embrace to expand the new base President Trump established. And where we need new candidates to carry that mantle, let’s find them and let President Trump help.

  1. We need to be informed of Mr Trump’s plans for the future. Please, Mr Trump, be mindful of the biblical prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation!

  2. Conservatives must be as aggressive as the left in many ways. The states that illegally changed their voting laws
    must return to their constitutional voting procedures.

  3. Mr. Trump I am a veteran and ready and willing to fight for you and this country again, we need to stop what is going on today and forward. God bless you and your family, we will overcome!

  4. Hey! Have you all not come to realization you were regarded with “weak minds” and led by appearance only
    as in ” The Pied Piper ”

  5. Trump’s Office of the Former President is not without precedent. Outgoing president Barack Obama established his Organization for Action (OFA) with estimated 25,000- 30,000 members operating from his home not too far from the White House. The OFA funded and organized the demonstrations during the Trump inauguration in 2017, and many more. What is without precedent is a former President, Obama and his wife actively supporting and campaigning for his party’s candidate.
    The Trump led GOP needs to throw down the gauntlet to the ‘never-Trumpers’ to lead, follow or get out of the way. Trump needs to develop a strategy, a game plan for 2022. His playbook should draw from “Resistance (At All Costs)” How Trump Haters Are Breaking America by Kimberly Strassel The New York Times best selling author of The Intimidation Game. The Trump movement should adopt the heretofore unconstitutional, unethical; discarding all norms, rules and regulations of Congressional behavior/near criminal tactics of “The Resistance”. Strassel describes the Left’s shocking disregard for honesty, integrity and the rule of law. The GOP should become the Harris-Biden administration’s “Resistance”. Turn about is fair play.

    1. I agree wholeheartedly. Mr. Trump, and his base, need to become the Left’s biggest nightmare and continual headache. We will not be silenced. They should realize that Trump will have Far More power and influence than ever before. He is no longer constrained by the limitations of the Presidency. I laughed out loud when I saw his new “office”. I LOVE his sense of humor!!! I remember that, like Joseph in the Bible, treated abominably by his j3ealous brothers, “What you meant for Evil, God meant for GOOD.” What is Right and Good will prevail. The Bible tells us so.
