Former president Donald Trump on Monday, January 25, established an official post-presidency office in Palm Beach County, Florida, setting up a vehicle for future public appearances and statements.

According to the press release from the office, "The Office of the Former President" will manage Trump's correspondence, public statements, appearance and official activities. "President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People," the release said.

Many previous presidents of the United States have post-presidency offices, including George W Bush, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. None of them have used the title of “former president” to name their offices because the phrase is not exclusive to their presidency, the same way it is not exclusive to Trump’s. Instead, they simply used their names for their office title.

Banned by several social media giants following his supporters’ deadly attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, sparked by his election fraud claims, Trump has largely been silent after the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20, 2021. He left the White House and Washington DC hours before the inauguration ceremony started and golfed at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach the following morning.

One internet user shared the statement of Trump's office and said, "JUST IN - Trump establishes the Office of the Former President. "The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump's correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities." Pure genius." To which another user replied: "That sounds prrrrretty pretty much like conspiracy or at least some type of shadow government to undermine the current administration."



 



 

Labeling his office as a "PR Office" another wrote, "The office of the former president is what normal people call a PR agency." While another one slammed Trump and said: "Setting the bar real low for "genius" since all former presidents have reps Must create some real confusion for his minions who think he's still in power after seeing "former" in the title." One mocked, ""official activities" Pure desperation." One said, "That's just so sad! So his whole life was just this one job, he can't move on!"



 



 

 



 

 



 

Podcast host Graham Allen tweeted, "Trump just created the Office of the Former President of the United States. It’s about to go down lol." Making fun of Trump's latest move, another one wrote: "Office of the former president. That’s like if the Miss Universe runner up went home, made her own crown and called a press conference to put it on."
