President Trump announced some major plans for 2022. No, he’s not running for Senate. But he does plan to make the Senate and the House great again. In a Thursday meeting at the Mar-A-Lago, President Trump held a meeting with some of his closest allies and advisors — a meeting where he laid out his plans for the midterm elections.
The meeting included many recognizable names: former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, former deputy campaign manager Justin Clark, former campaign manager Brad Parscale, former White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino, and attorney Alex Cannon. Though it might seem like the former President is planning a run for Congress based on that list of names, Trump has other plans — a new super PAC intended to elect only the best. Politico reports:
Lewandowski, himself a former campaign manager for Trump in 2016, did not respond to requests for comment. In a statement, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said the former president will announce more details about his political operation “in the coming weeks.
“MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.”
President Trump may not be in office anymore and it is unclear if he plans to run again in 2024, but it’s clear that he plans to remain a major player in the Republican Party. And given his popularity among conservatives, the President can play a major role in mobilizing patriots for the important midterm elections at a time when taking back Congress is imperative.
President Trump also says he hopes to use the opportunity to “engage” in the 2022 election and “exact revenge” on Republicans like Mitch McConnell, who are not loyal to him, and men like Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, for not “overturning the election.”
It’s unclear what Trump plans specifically, but he is expected to share more at his appearance at CPAC on Sunday.
