Sometime between January 11 and January 15, Donald Trump begins talking to aides and allies about forming a new major political party. He wants to call it the Patriot Party.
A Patriot Party has existed in the U.S. before, but it was a socialist party. More recently, a second Patriot Party that never came to fruition called for legislation based primarily on science. Trump’s Patriot Party would be wildly different considering his presidency.
