Washington DC. The outgoing president, Donald Trump, has been discussing the possibility of starting a new party with several of his allies in recent days.
It tells sources with knowledge of the plans, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper stresses that it is uncertain whether Trump really means the plans seriously.
Starting a new, rival party in the United States will require a great deal of effort, and it will in all likelihood meet with great opposition from his current party, the Republican Party.
A third party in addition to the Democrats and Republicans has historically had a hard time in the United States.
According to several sources close to Trump, the outgoing president has already found a party name. He will allegedly call the party “The Patriot Party” or in Danish “Patriotpartiet”.
The plans, according to The Wall Street Journal, have been discussed between Trump and his advisers and others in his circle of friends.
The talks come two weeks after Trump’s supporters stormed the US Congress building. It has divided Trump and several Republicans who believe the president incited the unrest, which cost five people their lives.
On Tuesday, Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell said Trump was to blame for the fatal onslaught.
Donald Trump leaves the presidency when Democrat Joe Biden is sworn in on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Trump delivered a farewell speech for the nation. Here he said, among other things, that he “prays for the success of the coming administration”.
Trump will not meet with Biden before Biden is installed on Wednesday at 18.00 Danish time.
Trump will instead fly with “Air Force One” to Florida, where he is expected to settle down.
