Former President Donald Trump opened an "Office of the Former President" on Jan. 25 that seeks to advance the interests of the United States and carry on the agenda of his administration.
A statement from the office in Palm Beach County, Florida, reads: "Today, the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, formally opened the Office of the Former President.
"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.
"President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People."
There have been many questions as to whether or how Trump would engage in politics after he left office. Trump made his first political move after leaving the White House on Jan. 22 when in a phone call he endorsed Kelli Ward, who was later reelected as the Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman.
Trump also released a statement late Jan. 25 endorsing his former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in her campaign for Arkansas governor.
The announcement of the "Office of the Former President' came shortly before the House of Representatives delivered a single impeachment charge to the Senate late Jan. 25. The "incitement of insurrection" charge claims that Trump was responsible for inciting an insurrection that resulted in riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Although Trump left office on Jan. 20, Senate leaders are determined to press forward. If convicted, senators can then choose to disqualify the former president from ever holding office again.
"We love you. We will be back in some form," he said at the time. "I will always fight for you. I will always be watching. I will be listening."
Former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell said over the weekend that Trump had told him that he wants to run for the presidency again. Grenell told Newsmax: "He’s told me personally, multiple times, that he does want to run again. So we’ll see if that holds and how that comes about; I think we’ve got a long ways to go."
