Trump's post-presidency clout puts Republicans on notice, Democrats on high alert:
Former President Donald Trump is behaving like he never left office.
Out of power for one week, Mr. Trump has created an “Office of the Former President,” staffed with former White House aides to “advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda” of his administration.
He is handing out political endorsements. He has backed Kelli Ward for a second term as chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party (she won) and former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for governor of Arkansas in 2022. Still cut off from social media, Mr. Trump released the statement endorsing Mrs. Sanders through his new political action committee, Save America.
A top Trump official, former Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought, announced Tuesday the formation of two more organizations to keep driving the momentum of the Trump agenda.
“A restoration is coming. Join us,” he wrote in The Federalist. --->READ MORE HERE

GOP voters still want Trump in 'major role':
Republicans are standing by their man. Former President Donald Trump has only been out of the White House for eight days, but that is enough time for many Republicans to realize that they still want him on the political battlefield.
“The share of Republican voters who say the 45th president should play a ‘major role’ in the future of the GOP increased 9 percentage points to 50%, compared to a survey conducted in the immediate aftermath of the Jan. 6 riot. The shift was driven by a 15-percentage point increase among women in the party — 41% to 56%,” reports a Morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday.
The poll — conducted Jan. 23-25 among 4,296 Republican voters — also found that 81% of the respondents have a positive view of Mr. Trump — up from 76% in a similar survey conducted in mid-January. --->READ MORE HERE
