According to the website of Newsweek on January 24, when Donald Trump left the White House recently, he promised to come back, so the rumors that he was going to form a new political party became more and more serious.
Although the former president has yet to announce any such plans, many of his supporters support a new so-called “Patriot party.”.
According to Forbes, George Papadopoulos tweeted that “the Patriots will be the third reliable party.”. Lu Dobbs of Fox Business News television said the name was “very good.”. And extreme right-wing social media celebrities such as Lin Wood spread the “Patriot party” logo with a lion.
In recent days, the search volume of “Patriot party” on Google has soared, and the word is more popular than “Republican Party” or “Democratic Party”.
However, the “Patriot party” is already a registered trademark and is not under Donald Trump’s name, the report said.
According to the U.S. patent and Trademark Office, the ownership of the name is in the hands of Donald Magal of Florida, and the registration time is January 2020.
According to the report, Magal is the founder of the website of the Patriot party. The statement on the website said the Patriot party wanted to “mobilize patriots at all levels of government to replace Democrats and Republicans and break their political repression.”.
Lawyer Eric Pelton told the world Trademark Review Magazine: “the Patriot party has been registered and its purpose is similar. If trump or anyone else wants to use this name, it will be very troublesome.”
The remarks made by former president trump when he left the White House last Wednesday prompted speculation about his future. “We will come back in some form,” he said
The report said that his first statement after leaving office encouraged such speculation. “We will do something, but not now,” trump told the Washington observer at a dinner at Trump International Golf Club in Florida
However, recent polls show that most people in the United States want him not to run for president again.
A poll conducted by opinion research firm / Economist magazine from January 16 to 19 found that 55% of respondents said they didn’t think trump should run for office again. Twelve percent of those who voted for trump in 2020 said he should not run again.
