Support former President Donald J Trump's, THE PATRIOT PARTY
The Wall Street Journal reports that Former US President Donald J. Trump is planning to launch a NEW political party, The Patriot Party, which is in line with his "America First" policy, which he has talked to some of his close aides and allies about forming.
According to the reports, former President Trump has recently discussed launching a new political outfit with his associates. According to people familiar with the matter, Trump’s effort to create a third-front in the US political system is believed to be an effort to exert continued influence in the US politics even after his exit from the White House.
Trump’s third party in the bi-party US political system
The decision to launch a new political party by Donald Trump comes amidst the ongoing controversy over his arbitrary suspension from social media platforms and the subsequent fallout between him and some of the Republican Party leaders ever since the violence at Capitol Hill took place. He had received backlash from several key Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who openly criticized Trump and held him responsible for the deadly violence at Capitol Hill.
It is pertinent to note that the US political system is mostly two-party system, controlled by Republicans and Democrats, as third fronts have typically failed to draw enough support to play a major role in national elections. In fact, the outgoing president not only has a large support base but also the resources needed to carry out such a move.
However, President Trump’s effort to start a new party will likely face intense opposition from Republican party officials as they would lose a major chunk of party supporters to the new political party.
Social media platforms ban US President Donald Trump
In a major blow to free speech, social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google banned the personal account of Donald Trump from their respective platforms. The arbitrary action by Twitter to ban a sitting President and big-tech companies playing a direct role in country’s politics has now caused a massive shock to the citizen’s worldwide, invoking fear about big-tech’s intent to censure contrary viewpoints.
Following his suspension, President Trump issued a statement saying that tech giants were colluding with Democrats and radical left elements to silence him and the 75 million people who voted for him.
