Democrats may have successfully forced Donald Trump out of office, but they haven’t forced him out of the spotlight.
Former President Trump appeared to confirm the rumors that he’s not done with politics by telling a reporter on Friday that he is coming up with plans to “do something” within the upcoming years — though he declined to reveal any specifics.
Anyone hoping that Trump will fade away into the shadows is likely to be sorely disappointed.
“We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner when asked about his plans for the future while dining at the Trump International Golf Club.
The Examiner reported that “An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction.”
Trump has been surprisingly close-mouthed since officially exiting the White House on Wednesday morning, his short interaction with the Examiner being the first words he exchanged with a reporter since retiring to Florida.
The former president has remained mum about his post-White House plans since authorizing a peaceful transition of power to now-President Joe Biden in early January, but many of his supporters speculate that he may be planning a return to presidential politics.
For now, Democrats are furiously working to prevent Trump from ever considering another run for President, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) notifying Senate Democrats on Friday that she will send the article of impeachment to the upper chamber Monday morning.
Democrats may have “won” this battle, but they know that Trump won’t give up that easily.
