2020 and 2021 have shown us that most members of the Republican party are just as deep in the swamp as the Democrats.
President Trump has taken notice and a recent report from the WSJ has come out and said that Trump is discussing plans to form a new party called the “Patriot Party”.
After McConnell’s latest statements accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection, it looks like the Republican Party is on its last breath.
A new “Patriot Party” led by President Trump could truly upset the apple cart and dethrone swamp creatures in our nation’s Capitol once and for all.
Trump has talked in recent days about forming a new political party that he'd call the "Patriot Party." Any effort would likely face intense opposition from Republicans, who would chafe at the thought of Trump peeling off support from GOP candidates. https://t.co/5LD3JmsYye

The Wall Street Journal exclusively broke the story:
President Trump has talked in recent days with associates about forming a new political party, according to people familiar with the matter…
Mr. Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week, the people said. The president said he would want to call the new party the “Patriot Party,” the people said.
Mr. Trump has feuded in recent days with several Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.), who on Tuesday said Mr. Trump deserved blame for provoking the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Polls show Mr. Trump retains strong support among rank-and-file GOP voters.

Many people believe the new party would split too many votes and cause the Democrats to take over.
Others would be eager to join and believe it could be the beginning of draining the swamp rats from both the Democratic and Republican Parties.
Where do you stand?
