Former US President Donald Trump has opened an official post-presidency office in Palm Beach County, Florida in a bid to further seek his administration’s agenda.
In a press release, ‘The Office of the Former President’ said that they will manage Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearance and official activities. They added that the office will work to further advance the interests of the US and to carry on the agenda of the Trump administration through advocacy, organising and public activism.
The ex-president’s former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, created a new email distribution system via one of his private companies for Trump’s statements because the 2020 campaign’s email infrastructure has been suspended by the vendor it had been using, Campaign Monitor, according to two people familiar with the matter.
A slew of technology platforms excised Trump accounts or subgroups, including those on Twitter, Facebook, Shopify, Twitch and Instagram, after the January 6 riot by pro-Trump supporters at the US Capitol.
Trump has been publicly silent since leaving the White House on January 20 for his Mar-a-Lago estate. The former President has been banned from Twitter and suspended from major social media platforms following the violent Capitol riots. The recent announcement of establishing his own post-presidency office comes on the same day the House of Representatives delivered to the Senate an impeachment article charging Trump with inciting insurrection in a speech to supporters before the deadly attack on the Capitol.
