Trump says ‘we’ll do something’ but ‘not just yet’ in first post-presidential remark
Former President Donald Trump has said that he'll be back in politics, but otherwise keeping his own counsel as he starts his new life as a Florida resident and golf club regular.
"We'll do something, but not just yet," Trump told in a brief interaction, reports Daily Mail.
Trump who left office Wednesday, made the comment while dining at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Trump has been in virtual seclusion since flying Mar a Lago in West Palm Beach in the final hours of his presidency – although he did hit the links his first day out of office and made it to the Grill Room of his golf club Friday.
It was Trump's first public comment since Joe Biden was sworn in, with the former president blocked from Twitter and choosing not to take part in the historic transfer of power Wednesday. That event featured events to bolster its 'unity' theme like having former Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama all speak to the nation in a joint video from Arlington Cemetery.
Trump has more to do in his post-presidency than simply reflect on his tenure or plot a comeback: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will transmit an impeachment article to the Senate on Monday.
That means Trump's impeachment trial on 'incitement of insurrection' will formally begin the following day, although senators could reach an agreement to postpone arguments and other matters.
Trump and his lawyers will immediately have to begin work on a defense. Federal authorities have arrested more than 125 people as they roll up alleged perpetrators of the January 6 MAGA riot in the Capitol.
