We have officially heard from President Trump!
And it sure seems to me like he’s not worried about a thing and actually having a fun time teasing with everyone about the future.
You can only act like that when you know you’ve already got it all in the bag and you’re just waiting for it to play out.
At least that’s my opinion.
Remember the day he “left office”?
One of his last comments was “See you soon”….remember that?
Well today he followed it up with another tease:

From the Washington Examiner:
Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday.
“We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction.
Those marked his first words to a journalist since he left the White House on Wednesday and flew to Florida.
Minutes earlier, House Democratic leaders announced that they intended to send an article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday that would charge the former president with inciting an insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6, threatening Trump’s hopes of running for president again.
Friday marked the second consecutive day that his motorcade drove the short distance from his private club Mar-a-Lago to his golf course.
He was spotted playing a round on Thursday morning but didn’t arrive until 1:20 p.m. on Friday and made straight for lunch.
He sat at his favorite table, his back to a window looking on to the rolling fairways and gurgling waterfalls of the course, and was dressed in a white golf shirt and his familiar red cap.
Outside on the terrace, guests were served bowls of crab bisque and pink slices of flank steak from a buffet staffed by white-gloved waiters protected by plastic screens.
The course was quiet in the midday heat of Florida’s winter.
Trump arrived in Florida on Wednesday, skipping his successor’s inauguration and cloistering himself at his own properties ever since.
“He needs a break,” said an aide earlier this week. “I think we all hope he just plays golf for a month, but he always has to be on the go.”
Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office.
He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations.

And from the NY Post:
Former President Donald Trump said Friday in his first public remark since leaving office that he will make a comeback in some form — but he’s not saying how.
“We’ll do something, but not just yet,” Trump told journalist Rob Crilly of the Washington Examiner.
The former president, who left office Wednesday, made the comment while dining at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla.
An assistant reportedly ended the interview after his single answer.
Trump has been virtually silent in the early days of President Biden’s administration. His preferred communication platform, Twitter, banned him after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, during which Trump supporters interrupted certification of Biden’s victory.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday she will transmit an article of impeachment against Trump — for allegedly inciting the riot — to the Senate on Monday, setting in motion his second impeachment trial.
Trump can seek a non-consecutive term as president in 2024, but if at least 17 Republican senators vote to convict him, he could be banned from holding office again.
Trump reportedly has considered forming a new political party called the Patriot Party.
