Donald Trump has said he will ‘always and forever be a champion for the American People’ in his first official statement since leaving office.
Trump revealed he had opened the ‘Office of the Former President’ in Florida that will handle his duties and seek to further his administration’s agenda.
‘The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism,’ the statement on executive letterhead said.
‘President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People.’
The statement, which was sent to reporters via email, includes a new logo designed by Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale, according to Wall Street Journal journalist Rebecca Ballhaus.
The logo is a cross between the Great Seal of the United States and the presidential seal.
Parscale has used almost all the elements of the Great Seal but he has taken the shield from the presidential seal.
Parscale first been demoted from campaign manager after the disastrous June rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which he claimed one million wanted to attend but had ended up with empty seats, then quit entirely in disgrace after being arrested at his house following a drunken armed standoff.
But Parscale now appears to be back in the fold, having called the Trumps ‘family’ and spoken loyally in their favor despite being forced out.
The announcement came on the same day the House of Representatives delivered to the Senate an impeachment article charging the former President with inciting insurrection in a speech to supporters before the attack on the Capitol on January 6. The Senate trial is expected to start on February 9.
