Former President Donald Trump’s office released a statement Monday announcing the formation of the Office of the Former President.
The Office will handle 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,” said the press release.
The letterhead on the statement indicated that the office will operate out of Palm Beach, where Trump moved after leaving the White House last week. The statement said 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”.
Trump team disavows newly formed MAGA Patriot Party
Donald Trump’s campaign team is disavowing any affiliation with a newly formed political committee called the MAGA Patriot Party.
“We are not supportive of this effort, have nothing to do with it, and only know about it through public reporting,” campaign adviser Jason Miller told The Epoch Times on Jan. 25 via text message.
Donald J. Trump for President (DJTFP), in a miscellaneous report filed with the Federal Election Commission, said it wanted “to disavow the activities of a committee named Patriot Party.”
The MAGA Patriot Party National Committee filed a notice of organization with the commission earlier on Jan. 25. While the filing claimed that Trump’s team was linked to the new committee, Trump’s team said it didn’t authorize the filing of a form claiming it as a participant in joint fundraising activities, hasn’t entered into any joint fundraising agreement with the new committee, and has no knowledge of the Patriot Party’s activities.
MAGA, which typically stands for “Make America Great Again,” was Trump’s campaign slogan.
“To be clear: DJTFP has no affiliation with Patriot Party, which is not authorized by Mr. Trump or DJTFP,” Trump’s team said.
“DJTFP is placing this disavowal notice on the public record out of concern for confusion among the public, which may be misled to believe that Patriot Party’s activities have been authorized by Mr. Trump or DJTFP—or that contributions to this unauthorized committee are being made to DJTFP—when that is not true.”
