Donald Trump is increasingly frustrated with the lack of movement around a new super PAC, two people familiar with the conversations told The Hill.
Allies the former president first shared the plans in late February for a super PAC as part of a post-presidency political operation. Trump told allies at the time that he’d chosen his one-time campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to run the organization, but roughly one month later, the 45th president has started lashing out about the lack of movement on the project, sources said, according to The Hill.
“He’s lashing out that nothing’s happening. He viewed this super PAC as something that’s supposed to have his back, and it’s nowhere to be found,” one source told the news outlet.
The two sources spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss conversations involving the former president.
A super PAC can raise and spend an unlimited amount of money, though it cannot contribute directly to a politician or political party. One source said Trump has pushed for a board to oversee the nascent super PAC’s spending.
As noted by The Hill, “questions about when the Trump-aligned super PAC might take shape come as the former president has in recent days become more visible, giving interviews to Fox News and Newsmax on Monday to rail against the Biden administration’s policies.”
Trump has also railed against GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach him.
