You gotta hand it to President Donald Trump, he definitely is the master troller and he just drives the left nuts.
Trump made an announcement today that was both funny and a bit of a joke at Joe Biden.
After the election and before anything was certified, just operating on the call of the media, Biden tried to validate himself more by having a backer behind him in every appearance proclaiming the “Office of the President Elect.” Of course, there is no such “Office.”
Today President Trump announced he was creating the ‘Office of the Former President’ in Florida that would be carrying on his administration’s agenda into the future.
A statement from Trump’s office said the “Office of the Former President” will be responsible for his “correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities.” It also said that it would “advance the interests of the United States and….carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.”
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."

And it will immediately be more popular than anything Joe Biden does. Good that someone will be trying to “advance the interests of the United States.” But he’s sending the Democrats a message that he isn’t going away and they haven’t beaten him no matter how hard they’ve continued to try.
Liberals are already losing their minds saying there’s no such thing as the “Office of the Former President.” Just like there was no such thing as the “Office of the President-Elect.”
Of course, former presidents have set up offices and they are actually paid for as part of provisioning by government. So in a sense yes, there is an office, they just may not have quite used the particular terminology.
It’s both an epic troll and a way of setting up his ability to propound his positions and work for Americans.
Trump has kept everyone guessing as to what he might do next, with speculation ranging from running his own media company to running again in 2024.
That latter possibility is why the Democrats are trying to impeach him now with the trial expected to start the week of Feb. 8. They’re hoping to use taxpayer dollars to knock him out of the race he isn’t yet even running for, with the excuse that it’s really not about politics when that’s all that it’s about.
But it’s unlikely the Democrats will be able to get the 2/3 vote they would need. More and more Republicans are blasting the Democrats’ obsession, questioning the purpose at this point as well as the constitutionality of the proceeding including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
