Donald Trump has officially launched an “Office of the Former President” in Palm Beach, Florida, according to a statement released late Monday.
It comes less than a week after the 74-year-old moved to his Mar-a-Lago resort promising to “do something, but not just yet.”
“The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism,” a statement reads.
“President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People.”
The announcement comes as the former president’s second impeachment is set to begin February 8 with some Senators labeling it “divisive and unconstitutional.”
“I believe an impeachment trial of a former president is unconstitutional and would set a very dangerous precedent,” Senator Ron Johnson said.
“There is no provision in the Constitution for holding such a trial over a former president who is now a private citizen. Where would we get the authority to do so?”
