Trump’s silence worries many, not just Republican politicians
★ The #BigTech lock:
Given the censorship of large technology platforms, Trump lacks the means to communicate with his followers. Having remained silent since he retired from the White House last week, when he made his way to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach.

The real Donald Trump has not left, it is true that he is playing golf, but as he said from his “hidden” paradise in Florida surrounded by palm trees, Donald Trump is also planning strategies that worry Republicans who fear political revenge.
★ A second “impeachment” against Donald Trump:
Meanwhile, the RealityShow, of an impeachment, begins in Washington. The former president, who many believe is in disgrace, makes it clear to Republican senators that they must remember that he is an important force, as he put it in a statement, where he announced on Monday that he was inaugurating “the Office of the Former President …” and reminded them:
“… and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and advance the Trump Administration’s agenda through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.”
“President Trump will always be a champion of the American people.”
The fate of #DonaldTrump is in the hands of the United States Senate, in the first impeachment trial of a former president. In addition to being the first time that a president of the #UnitedStates has been tried twice.
Now, for Donald Trump to be found guilty by the Senate, the approval vote of at least 34% of the Republican senators is required in addition to the positive vote of the 50 Democratic senators.
For this reason, President Donald Trump is unlikely to be found guilty, as Republican senators will have to consider his own future before daring to cross the line to vote alongside Democratic senators.
★ The consequences:
While it is true that many Republican legislators do not like Donald Trump. It is no less true that the real Donald Trump obtained more than 70 million votes, which is added to the fact that, according to polls, a high percentage of Republicans and pro-Republican independents think that the elections were somehow rigged and that the party it must continue to be led by Trump. That he also has sufficient campaign funds.
In this context, many Republican legislators will have to face primaries within their own party, against adversaries who will surely be supported by Trump in the face of the 2022 mid-term elections where they could reconquer the House of Representatives and the Senate of the United States. . .
Furthermore, the real Donald Trump has proven to be a relentless foe who crushes his opponents and appreciates loyalty. Besides his supposed tantrums, they are nothing more than well-planned strategies. Donald Trump’s endorsement of her former press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in her aspirations to become governor of #Arkansas, competing against senior party officials; is a sample of it.
So, for now at least, including the 10 Republicans in the House who voted with the Democrats for their impeachment, many Republican lawmakers have nervous days ahead of them and being pro-Trump is arguably the best way to avoid it.
