Trump wants to start a new political party?

it was reported yesterday that Trump has already begun talking about creating a new political party called the ‘Patriot Party’:

WSJ – President Trump has talked in recent days with associates about forming a new political party, according to people familiar with the matter, an effort to exert continued influence after he leaves the White House.

Mr. Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said. The president said he would want to call the new party the “Patriot Party,” the people said.

Mr. Trump has feuded in recent days with several Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), who on Tuesday said Mr. Trump deserved blame for provoking the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Polls show Mr. Trump retains strong support among rank-and-file GOP voters.

The White House declined to comment.

It’s unclear how serious Mr. Trump is about starting a new party, which would require a significant investment of time and resources. The president has a large base of supporters, some of whom were not deeply involved in Republican politics prior to Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign.

I doubt Trump is very serious about this at all. It wouldn’t surprise me if this was just talked about in jest as he was lamenting his discussions with McConnell.

Because if Trump’s as smart as he says he is, then he would know that starting a new party, splitting the Republican party it two would mean the beginning of Democrat permanent rule. It’s really that simple and doesn’t take any more than common sense to figure out.

So this is really a non-story in my opinion and won’t ever come to fruition.
