Donald Trump has already formed a political action committee in an attempt to retain control of the Republican party even after losing the election.

The leadership PAC is heavily geared toward squeezing donations from low-dollar donors, accepting no more than $5,000 per donor annually but from an unlimited number of people, according to the New York Times. It can also accept transfers from other PACs.

The Trump campaign's fundraising asks now note that 60% of the donations raised will go to his new Save America PAC.

"The president always planned to do this, win or lose so he can support candidates and issues he cares about, such as combating voter fraud," campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh told the Times.

And no one cares more about helping other candidates than Trump, as he recently proved when he threatened Georgia's two Republican senators unless they threw a GOP state election official under the bus.

As Republican strategist Matt Gorman said: "President Trump is not going anywhere anytime soon. . . . He's going to insert himself in the national debate in a way that's unlike any of his predecessors."

Great news for Democrats—Trump plans to haunt Republicans for as along as possible, as long as his cultists will foot the bill. And priority No. 1 for him is Trump first, last, and always. That 2024 announcement could be coming sooner rather than later.
