Donald Trump has been the quietest he has ever been in four years since he left the White House for the last time on Wednesday morning, several hours before Biden’s inauguration — a move that was reportedly born of his desire to be able to use Air Force One without having to ask the new President for permission — headed to Florida after his “send-off” soirée that turned out to be quite the bust. Being that he departed on his final day with his head hung in shame, most of his “people” attending Biden’s inauguration instead of his farewell event, and without a single social media account to air his grievance on, we expected him to pout for a pretty good while.
However, this is Donald Trump we’re talking about here and to think that he’d be quiet and unobtrusive for too terribly long would be ignorant, at best.
In his departing message to the American people, Trump promised (or warned, if you ask me) that his time on the political scene is far from over, consistent with reporting that he’ll likely run for another term in 2024 if the Senate doesn’t vote to convict him and prevent that from ever happening again.
Now, in his very first public words since Biden took office two days ago Trump is doubling down on his promise (threat) that we haven’t seen the last of him.
In a very, very brief statement to the Washington Examiner, while he was seated at his regular table at the private Trump International Golf Club restaurant, Trump stated, “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” before an aide swooped in an quickly cut off the encounter.
Trump and his family have been staying at his International Golf Club in Florida since departing the White House two days ago, where he’s already been spotted hitting the links. Reports have indicated that Trump and Melania had hoped to make the golf club their home as they adjust back to private citizen life, but additional reporting has indicated that Florida residents are not keen on the idea.
