President Donald Trump promises a “restoration coming” as he continues work of GOP and supports candidates
After slightly over a week since his departure from the White House, President Trump has gone back to work, creating an “office of the former president,” which is staffed with former White House aides. His purpose is to “advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda” of his administration, the Washington Times reported.
Mr. Trump is already active in helping to support Republicans, first by giving political endorsements. He backed Kelly Ward for a second term as chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party, who won. Trump has also endorsed former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in her bid for governor of Arkansas in 2022.
Trump also has a new political action committee called “Save America.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believes most Republicans will once again unite around former President Trump’s policies.
“I want to make sure that the Republican Party can grow and come back,” Graham explained, “and were going to need Trump and Trump needs us. I think the best thing for us is to keep the Trump policy movement alive.”
Democrats are worried
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is worried about the political power former President Trump still wields.
“Donald Trump’s team just announced he’s sitting on a $70 million war chest and he plans to use every cent to elect pro-Trump Republicans up and down the ballot,” Pelosi said. “I refuse to let this one-term president undermine our Democrats just days into the Biden-Harris administration.”

Abrams, the former gubernatorial nominee, as all but certain to challenge Kemp next year and a rematch of their 2018 showdown, where she narrowly lost by less than 55,000 votes out of nearly 4 million cast, Fox reported. The group plans to target Abrams with opposition research, digital ads and other paid media.
The opposition group described itself as “a national, grassroots organization of engaged conservatives who are committed to protecting our future from Stacey Abrams, her left-wing backers, and their radical, un-American agenda.”
