Russ Vought, who led Donald Trump’s Office of Management and Budget, plans to announce two pro-Trump organizations Tuesday, aiming to provide the ideological ammunition to sustain Trump’s political movement after his departure from the White House.
Why it matters: The Center for American Restoration and an advocacy arm, America Restoration Action, will try to keep cultural issues that animated Trump’s presidency on the public agenda, according to people familiar with the matter.
What we’re hearing: Vought is teaming up in the effort with Rachel Semmel, who ran communications for Trump’s OMB, and Ashlea Frazier, his former chief of staff.
- The Center for American Restoration will be organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and explore issues including voter fraud and the role of big technology and social media companies in disseminating information.
- America Restoration Action will be set up as a 501(c)(4) “social welfare” group, with more of a focus on policy advocacy.
This is all good since the Republican Party in the President’s absence has made itself a subset of the Democrat Party rather than a voice for the 75 million Americans who legitimately voted for Donald Trump. The current Republican leadership is more concerned about befriending the corrupt and criminal Democrats than standing up for America.
