Donald Trumpis considering a range of ways to make money and advance his political brand when he leaves office in January, sources close to the president told The Washington Post.
- Facing $400 million debts, Trump is talking about ways to cash-in through selling rally tickets, lucrative speaking gigs and media appearances, according to the report.
- Though in public Trump has insisted he was the real winner of the election, in private his attention has focussed on what he'll do after leaving the White House.
President Donald Trump, with top aides and allies, has discussed ways he could cash-in on his role as former president when he leaves the White House in January, The Washington Post reported.
In public, Trump has continued to stir allegations of election fraud, for which he has produced no convincing evidence, and insists that he is the real winner of the election, which media organizations called for Democrat Joe Biden more than two weeks ago. Trump has even attempted to pressure GOP officials to delay certifying the election result in a bid to subvert the result of the election.But in private conversation with aides, the Post reports, Trump appears to have acknowledged he will be leaving office in January, and is planning his next moves.
Among the ideas touted by the president are a 2024 run for the presidency, setting up a potential rematch with Biden. But facing debts of up to $400 million, some of which will come due in the next two years, and likely substantial legal bills, making money is also reportedly at the forefront of Trump's mind."Trump also has been exploring ways to make money for relatively little work, such as giving paid speeches to corporate groups or selling tickets to rallies," reports the Post."Also, he may try to write a score-settling memoir of his time as president and appear on television, in a paid or unpaid capacity."
Trump is also talking about revenge, particularly against
