Former President Donald Trump hunkered down in Florida after leaving the White House on Jan. 20, 2021. Many speculated about his post-presidency life — particularly since he could not share his opinions and plans on most social media platforms after having been barred from them for his role inciting a mob attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
But on Jan. 25, several journalists received an emailed statement from the “Office of the Former President,” which was “responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.”
Some of them shared screenshots of the email:

It is not clear what else the former president is planning.
Given that the email was sent to multiple journalists, and reported on by reputable media outlets, we rate this claim as “True.”
