President Trump Has No Plans for a Third Party, Says Adviser

Former President Donald Trump allegedly has no plans to form a new political party, and is instead in favor of simply supporting Republican Party primary challengers in the 2022 midterm elections, according to Fox News.

Former senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News on Sunday that despite numerous reports to the contrary, often citing “anonymous sources,” President Trump “has made clear his goal is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022.”

The confirmation comes amid rumors that President Trump was considering forming a new third party called the Patriot Party, which would run America First candidates against Republican candidates who are not loyal enough to the president’s MAGA agenda. He is still openly considering running again for the presidential nomination in 2024, which many believe he would overwhelmingly win if he did so.

Prior reports indicated that President Trump had been drafting up an “enemies list” of Republicans that he would like to see face third-party challengers in 2022. Among them are, allegedly, Representatives Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Tom Rice (R-S.C.), two of the ten Republicans in the House of Representatives who voted in favor of his second impeachment, as well as Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Governor Brian Kemp (R-Ga.). There have already been indications of overwhelming grassroots support for primarying many of these and other “moderate” Republicans in favor of more pro-Trump candidates.
