Officially, the elected US President Donald Trump (74) allows himself a break of several weeks after the exhaustive term in office. This is usually a tradition among presidents after they have left the White House. But Trump also seems to be breaking this custom. Photos taken by paparazzi over the weekend show Trump playing golf at his West Palm Beach Club. As he was on his way back to his stately Mar-a-Lago mansion in Palm Beach, he was celebrated by roadside supporters.
The shame of the past few days cannot be seen on Trump. He seems relaxed and relaxed. And possibly already starting a counter-offensive – threatens its own republican party with founding its own party. It should be called the Patriot Party, or the MAGA Party, as reported by the Washington Post, the acronym for “Make America Great Again”. According to US media reports, Trump wants to use his own ultra-right party to punish “disloyal” Republicans who have not been loyal to him and who support the impeachment proceedings against him.
73 million Americans voted for Trump. Many of them consider him the rightful election winner. And feel ignored. Trump is her man, speaks her language. But founding a new party against the traditional two-party system of the US would require a significant investment of time and resources. This while the Trump empire is deeply in debt and Trump is likely to find himself in financial difficulties soon.
Toxischer Name Trump
Its most lucrative businesses to date, such as hotels and golf clubs, have been struggling financially since the beginning of the pandemic. In addition, Trump’s name is so toxic, especially in the democratic strongholds of Washington DC, New York and California, that numerous companies terminated their contracts with him.
Various banks have also closed Trump’s accounts since the US Capitol mutiny and his tax attorney’s office refuses to represent the ex-president. In addition, there are dizzying debts. According to Forbes magazine, a total of one billion dollars is due to American and foreign credit institutions.
The Deutsche Bank alone will have to repay Trump 330 million dollars in three years – according to CNN, this bank has also decided not to do any further business with Trump.
Trump’s already high legal fees are likely to rise further. At the same time, he has no longer enjoyed presidential immunity since moving out of the White House and has to stand trial in New York for alleged financial and tax fraud.
The Senate vote on his last impeachment is still pending.
After all, Trump as a former president enjoys personal protection for life. He can spend up to 1.5 million a year on bodyguards for himself and his wife Melania (50) – or use the Secret Service.
Father and daughter Trump in Florida
The “Sunshine State” decided the presidential election solidly in favor of Trump. Wherever “Latinos for Trump” have their stronghold, he should pitch his political tents. In addition, his daughter Ivanka (39) and son-in-law Jared Kushner (40) have rented a room in Miami.
The Capitol striker had praised them as “American patriots”, but then deleted the tweet.
Florida is also a base of Ivanka. During the election campaign she was there on stage next to her father at several events and collected several million dollars. Father and daughter Trump in Florida – a political duo that could still be talked about. (kes)
