Donald Trump holds grudges; that’s who the former president is. Trump isn’t one to take responsibility for his own actions. Instead, he lashes out at others. So now, Trump is plotting a comeback revenge tour targeting Republican defectors after his Senate impeachment trial, Business Insider reports. We can only picture him in exile, screaming up and down the corridors of Mar-a-Lago now. Trump’s impeachment trial was a self-inflicted wound, but he’ll never own up to that, even after inciting a violent mob of his supporters to storm the Capitol on January 6th.
According to the news outlet, Trump is talking with aides about a road trip to campaign against Republicans who supported his impeachment. One Republican close to the former president said, “I’m sure he wants to get out a roulette wheel with all their faces on it.”
“A Donald Trump comeback tour is in the works once he’s beyond a second Senate impeachment trial, Insider has learned,” the report states. “That’s the strategy emerging out of Mar-a-Lago, the Trump-owned private club in South Florida where the former president now lives. Trump and his small post-White House team are holed up there planning out potential trips to campaign against Republicans who voted in support of his removal from office, according to 6 people close to the former president.”
For the time being, until the impeachment trial is over, Trump is standing back and standing by. Trump and those in his orbit know that the former president should stay out of the spotlight for now.
“Even he recognizes that we have Trump fatigue,” the Republican close to Trump told the outlet. “Even he knows that you can get overexposed, and he wore the electorate out. And that was part of the problem. He clearly wore the country out with his behavior between the election and the inauguration.”
“Honestly, Twitter did him a favor,” the Republican added.
Twitter did us all a favor since this country is suffering through multiple crises. Trump was banned just after he added yet another crisis to the long list. Even so, some of his advisers want him to speak publicly soon out of fear that he might be losing his grip on the GOP.
