Former President Donald Trump wasn’t very clear about his future plans while making his first public speech after leaving the White House earlier in the inauguration day, but he did say that action is in the works.
The former president was asked to comment on his next step as he sat down for dinner at the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida He had only given a short response to the question before one of his aides ordered the Washington Examiner reporter to leave the premises.
“We’ll do something, but not just yet,” Trump said.
Trump arrived at his Mar-a-Lago resort on Wednesday morning before President Joe Biden was sworn into office as the 46th president of the United States. He was spotted golfing at his club the next day. So far, Trump hasn’t really said much about what he plans to do after his term in office.
Democratic lawmakers have insisted on going ahead with impeachment proceedings regarding Trump’s connection to the January 6 riot at the Capitol. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., says the preliminary schedule for Trump’s trial will begin Friday evening, a few days after House lawmakers voted to impeach the former president on a single count of incitement of insurrection.
Trial participants will be sworn on Tuesday, while legal teams for both sides will start preparing briefs and arguments for the matter. Trial proceedings will follow the week of February 8.
If the Senate votes to impeach Trump on the ground of “inciting an insurrection,” he could then be barred from running for office again in the future, killing hopes from his supporters for 2024 presidential run.
