(TargetLiberty.org) – Sources close to President Trump are saying he’s thinking about breaking the mold of US politics. Two parties have dominated our government since the Civil War era. Now, that might be on the brink of change.
Whatever party Trump is – I am.
Welcome to the Patriot Party. There’s 75 million of us not going ANYWHERE! https://t.co/rGXby6h6n5

On January 19, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Trump is in discussions about forming his own political party, called the “Patriot Party”. A new party led by Trump would instantly become the third, jumping ahead of the Libertarians and Greens for the challenger’s position. Insiders say Trump is considering the move because many senior Republicans abandoned him in the last weeks of his administration, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) being particularly obstructive.
Mainstream Republican leaders would resist any new party out of fear it that would split their vote. Many of the party’s old-school chiefs would prefer Donald Trump to just go away. Unfortunately for them, the GOP grassroots disagree vehemently. A Trump party would likely gain huge support, and could force a serious realignment of our creaking political system.
