Former President Donald Trump has remained fairly quiet since leaving the White House last month, however, recent reports have suggested that Trump does not plan to stay quiet in the following days. Just days after he met with House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr. took to Telegram to offer an update on Trump and his Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement.

McCarthy met Trump at the latter's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, where Trump has been residing since leaving Washington DC. McCarthy and Trump reportedly "discussed many topics, number one of which was taking back the House in 2022." A statement released by Trump's Save America Political Action Committee (PAC) stated that the meeting between McCarthy and Trump was "cordial" and highlighted a stronger-than-expected performance among key House GOP candidates.

According to reports, Trump Jr's video on Telegram, which included a clip of his father saying, "We haven't finished yet," addressed his followers saying that plans for the future have been brewing for a while. He told his followers, "The reality is this movement isn’t over. All of the blood, sweat, and tears that you guys have all put into this thing is very much still alive and well. You see that. I mean, this is really a movement of the people, a movement against the establishment, a movement against the elite.”

Trump Jr said, "We’re going to fight to elect people who really represent the people. The people like you, who have gone through so much. So I know my father is going to be in that fight, he’s going to keep going."

He added, "I know we’re up against a lot, we always have been. You know, the media that’s so stacked against us, they put up a study from NYU, one of the most liberal universities probably anywhere on the planet that said there’s no conservative bias in media or otherwise.”

Trump Jr also spoke out against what he perceived as social media bias, saying, "When I look at things that I put up on my social media that are totally objective or that are satire, one or the other, that [social media content] gets fact-checked so that they can use that to knock my platform, to prevent me from getting any kind of reach."

He continued, "I see that stuff on a daily basis, I don’t see that on the other side. I don’t see Joe Biden getting fact-checked when he said he’s not going to ban fracking when he bans fracking."

He continued, "If there’s even a little bit of ambiguity they get the benefit of the doubt, whereas if there’s even a little bit, a modicum, something like I said, subjective, who’s to know what the fact checker’s thinking, but certainly I know what I’m thinking and I can come up with a parameter that makes everything correct but the fact-checkers can say that it falls outside of those lines."

Trump Jr concluded the video saying, "The nonsense never seems to end, but neither will our fight, neither will our resolve, neither will our will to go on. We’re going to keep pushing for the American people and make sure our kids grow up in a country that we all recognize and love."
