Donald Trump looking to form his own political party — the 'Patriot Party': Report
Donald Trump has reportedly spoken to confidants and aides over the last several days about possibly forming his own political party, according to a Tuesday night report from the Wall Street Journal.
The outlet reports that the move comes on the heels of Trump feeling that Republicans abandoned him following the early January attack on the U.S. Capitol as well as the GOP members who voted in favor of a historic second impeachment.
What are the details?
The outlet, citing inside sources reportedly familiar with the matter, said that the president would like to call the party the "Patriot Party."
"Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week," the outlet reported. "The president said he would want to call the new party the 'Patriot Party,' the people said."
The Daily Wire reported that "top pro-Trump Republicans" close to the administration said that it was a "bad idea" and would effectively split the Republican Party so that it would be nearly impossible for Republicans or otherwise to defeat the Democratic Party in elections.
